I change mine once a year. if I used it more, that would change. I'm not real anal about, if it don't look like tar, I'm good!:D

yea my equipment gets regular baths too ..... make em happier :p:D
I change my equipment oil nearly every 3 months. :)
I change most oils yearly or when they look low or bad. The mower’s is the only oil I have noticed that will get a little low or show wear. I feel this is from heavy mulching load of grass and leaves.
Once a year for everything but the generator. I change that about every 30 hours or so.
My portable 3kw generator has only been used 4+ hours in the past four years, and I have just changed the oil once, mostly to see how to do it.

The mower gets an oil change every year.

The stationary vertical 2-stage compressor in the garage also gets a change once a year. I plumbed up a drain tube and ball valve so it drains into a pan on the floor. When first installed, I still had kids at home, and was smart enough to remove the valve's lever and hide it. :rolleyes:

Caveat: I work for Honda, but the preceding is my opinion alone.
