Since the new quick change oil filter only changes a portion of the engine oil; does the E160 have a drain that can be used to drain the remaining dirty oil?
Asked by: jpmax
All you do is measure from the oil plug to the side of the frame. Take the plug to any hardware store, get right sized nipple and cap and screw them in to where the plug was. At most, $10. Now all you do is put oil pan under, unscrew cap. Oil flows from end of the nipple into the pan without all the oil getting onto the frame. This application works on any and all mowers

How wide is the 48 inch deck including the plastic discharge chute? My storage building double doors seem to be small.

Asked by: don
Measuring the total width of the blade cover to the edge of the discharge chute, you will need at least 6 ft to have enough clearance to store the mower and to get it out of the double doors.
