    Those that are not familiar with this, it is Toro's version of the Walker. Since it sits low to the ground I cannot get a oilpan under it to catch the old oil. So I tried jacking it up, but it hinges in the middle. Is there an easier way to lift the mower so I can get under it or is it just a PIA.

    I'm not familiar with this unit but can you jack it up from the side in the center ? Of course with the drain plug on the lower side. The Gravely PM300 was like this and it worked for me.

    I took a 2.5 gal oil jug(actually it was a chenical jug) and cut it in about a 1/3.Then it slides right under,just make sure it is big enough to hold the oil in the pan.I work at a golf course so we have several machines that this works for.Anything under four quarts in the pan.I think the 325 holds about 3 or 3 1/2 quarts of oil so it should be no problem.
