Also know, what kind of oil does my Snapper lawn mower use?
For Briggs & Stratton manufactured small engines, we recommend the use of Briggs & Stratton Warranty Certified mower oil for best performance in Snapper lawn mowers, tractors, snow blowers and other outdoor power products.
Furthermore, where is the oil drain plug on a snapper push mower? The oil drain plug is located on the side of the engine. It was hard to access and then loosen the plug, while tipping the mower on it's side, so that the oil would flow into a pan. I ended up spilling half the used oil on my lawn! As far as I can tell, there is not an oil drain plug on the under side of the mower.

How often should you change lawn mower oil?
For best lawnmower engine performance, you should change oil after the first 5 hours of use for a new mower, then at least once every spring or summer mowing season or every 50 hours of operation, which ever comes first. Make sure you have the right supplies before you begin.
