    Not sure about yours but our toro we just pull the plug with a pan underneath, let it drain for a good 10 minutes, flush with new oil then put the plug back in. Fill er up and your ready to roll a 15 minute procedure and very simple, on our 14 kawi anyway.

    We have an exmark with a 15 kaw. Not hard to change the oil...what is so hard about it.

    Unscrew the bolt...let the oil pour into an oil pan... Change oil filter...screw bolt on...add oil...run for a while ...check oil level.

    We have a 15 Kawi. There are drain plugs on both sides. Make sure you're using the one designed for your mower. First time I used the wrong plug and got oil everywhere.

    We bought a fluid evacuator from the dealer. Now we suck the oil out from the filler tube. No fuss, no muss.
