The most obvious cause would be the transmission - one of the ring seals on the shafts is worn out. To replace the seal and a thorough inspection (if one seal has failed the others can't be far behind) - around $400. If all the seals on the transmission must be replaced - around $450.

Engine is smoking on Cub Cadet LE-100 edger. Is it because of old oil, and if so, howdy I empty the old oil?

Sounds like the rings are leaking. Changing oil will help. look on engine crankcase and see if there a screw type plug the bottom of plug should be facing down. Look in yellow pages and find a repair shop and ask them how much to repair. Sometimes it may cheaper to buy new unit
