Has the engineer of your 48" w/b ever changed the oil on one before? You take out the drain plug and the oil runs all over the machine,on the belts below, and all over the floor. With the o-ring on the plug is it possible to add an extension of pipe to bring the plug further out to the edge of the chassis? My Hustler Z has an extension on it but not sure if it is even long enough. I like the equipment and had not complaints until my first oil change - what a mess!!!!!
