    On most mowers there is a plug (approx. 10mm) under the deck of the mower that must be removed to drain the oil. However I am not familiar with Mountfield. (I'm in US.)



    You may be able to contact Mountfield directly to see if you can obtain a manual for the mower. Here is the site with a phone # and an email form:

The easiest way would be to purchase a manually pump up oil change device that draws a vacuum and you put the tube from that device in the oil fill hole and draw it out to its own container

How do you change the oil in a mountfield LS45 Lawnmower???


While I am not familiar with this brand, typically, in a four cycle lawn mower engine, there will be a oil drain plug in the bottom of the engine or on the lower part of the engine above the deck.

Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com

Have a mountfield honda GCV135, need to change oil but cant find the plug? and want to know about air filter cleaning?


Here is the manual.... : http://www.smallenginewarehouse.com/images/manuals/GCV135-160.pdf

On page 28 of the pdf file it says you have to shut off the fuel and then remove the oil filler cap/dipstick and then tip the engine to drain the oil.

Air filter cleaning procedures are on page 31 of the pdf file.

Thanks for using FixYa.
