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.

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.
