    is there a product available to make changing my oil in my WB easier. This is the worst thing to do. I know there are drain plugs available for autos that consists of a valve and hose. Do they make them for mowers too??????????

    What exactly is the problem?? I have a shallow pan I put under the mower.

    They do have syphon bulbs where you can suck the oil out of the dipstick holder.

    the issue is that the oil plug is directley above the mower frame. It is a PITA because the oil gets all over everything. I know they make a drain plug that has a fitting for a hose so you can direct the oil away from the mower...but i can only find it for a vehicle.

    Use a hose to run to the drain pan. That's what I do.

    I don't drain my oil I suck it out with a pump know fuss know muss. There are allot of different pumps on the market to do this with. I have not drained oil in years.

    I just drain it any old way. I just do it, and if it gets all over the place, just clean it up. Just my two cents.
