Default Yanmar VIO25 oil change

Hi, anyone here know where I will find the oil drain plug on a Yanmar VIO25 mini digger?
Thanks.

Yes, thank you for that. I know it will be on the sump somewhere but access is extremely limited and before I start taking out the battery or other bits (which I think is necessary on some diggers) I wondered if anyone knew specifics.

If you can't find it get a vacuum bucket and put the hose down the dipstick! That's what I do if it's a pin getting to the plug
