  1. Thanks for your video, it was very helpful. My question to those Lazy, Greedy Manufacturers who are also trying to turn a profit and save money. What happened to the " Drain Plug" ? Doing it this way is messy and your not always sure you have all the oil drained. It's a blessing their not making car engines. Oh!!!! I forgot, that's probably next. Thanks for the Tutorial.

  2. Hi
    you don't need to tip your mower over Briggs & stratton have a pump to change the oil no mess at all you should buy one and before you change the oil you should start the mower for a couple of minits first

  3. um yeah since mowers don't have filters you need to get ALL the oil out and without a drain plug it's near impossible. Come on manufacturers use some common sense and bring back the drain plug.
