I don't see the drain plug, is it under all the bottom plastic?? Not mentioned in manual either.

Motor is 5.5 HP Briggs...shouldn't be this difficult...lol.

Lots of mowers now just say to run it low on gas/out of gas (to reduce spillage) and tip it on it's side to drain it through the dipstick hole.

Time for a vac to suck out the oil. I have a power washer with the same issue

Ok, thanks...was hoping there was a simpler way but I guess I can use a tube.

I have seen B&S engines with a internal hex head bolt that is flush with the mower bottom. Ed

The way the engine is mounted, the drain bolt is likely under the blower housing plastic for the vacuum. Stupid design, but you could drain the oil by opening the dipstick/fill plug on the engine and tipping the motor on its side.
