First oil change AX414 cc with side drain

First 5 hours (not many storms so far), drained oil and added 38 oz. of 5-30 synthetic. Made this simple trough to save having to remove the wheel. Worked perfectly. Used a piece of aluminum left over from trim on house, bent it one side higher so oil will not spill.

I use an old license plate. I put a large key ring in the top hole. I slip that ring over the drain extension off the motor. Slide/trough quits slipping off to create a mess.

just did the first oil change on my old repowered ariens, no extension tube on it, but did something "kinda" like you did Bob. on the chonda, there is just enough room under the block to slip a piece of thick paper ( cut from a dog treat box). slid a tab under the block, folded up the sides to make a trough, blocked the machine up so it was well tilted to the right, and basically no spill ! well just a few drops when i removed my disposable trough.

No Drain Plug/Drain Pipe to the rear, so that you could just tilt the Blower back on its wheels ?

Like on a Tecumseh with a 6" Drain Pipe ?

I just slit a 2 liter pop bottle the long way and use that. Wipe it down and store it with the drain pan and use it over and over.

.
Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

I got one of these to clear the sway bar on my car when doing an oil change.....have used it for many other applications, including changing oil on my tractor and snowblower.

Very handy!

Cut the side out of an empty motor oil plastic bottle and use it as a funnel. If you have a tight area, cut out the narrow side. Or cut out the wide side and have a larger area to catch the stream. Plus you have the spout for the oil to flow into another container. Can't be the cost for this one.
