Honda HS828 oil leak

I am getting a couple drops a day of what seems to be oil from the bottom of my engine. There is a rectangular ramp that it is dripping off of. I would guess this ramp is to allow water run off but I am getting oil dripping off of it. I've attached a pic. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Drain plug leak? Check the torque on the drain plug, possibly get another gasket.

That bolt is what you remove to drain the engine oil. Did you try tightening it?

It could be overfilled with oil too

That ramp is actually for the oil to run off when you do an oil change. On your model, you can pull your wheel off ( I have tracks) as far as the leak, mine has a rubber o ring on the bolt. Maybe check that on yours, or give it a little more turn to tighten.

HS 928 TCD. It's Canadian eh! (Sure I'm done modifying it, for now, until next time.......)

If possible check the torque as wbd said and make sure you don't over tighten it resulting in stripped threads.

Snow Removal Apparatus I own:
Ariens ST1530DLE, and good ole arm powered scrapper.
The 15 HP is a new Ducar engine sold
by Princess Auto in Canada.

Thanks guys! I just got this blower late last year so I haven't done an oil change or anything with it yet. I was able to tighten the drain plug a bit so hopefully that is my problem.
