Here is mine.
Had to change the oil in the push mower so I used a ratchet strap on the front and the recovery strap on the back.
There's a much easier way to do that. Run engine 2-3 min to warm up oil. Remove oil fill plug/dipstick. Tip mower on side with dipstick down and drain oil into catch pan. While its tipped to the side, remove and sharpen the blade. Replace blade, tip mower back up, refill with oil, replace spark plug, clean or replace air filter, and start unit. I can tune up a push mower at work in under 15 min. You'll find on the newer push mower engines that there isn't a drain plug on the bottom anymore. With all the self propel drive systems, mulch domes, etc on the bottom, its pretty much impossible to reach them without disassembling half the mower anyway.
