Model 27LE oil leak

I have an 8 yo model 27LE. I noticed yesterday that it’s dripping oil constantly from the left axle exactly mid way where there’s a seam. It only drips under load and not when stationary (regardless of whether it’s running.)

    Don't the equipment but it sounds like a seal leaking.

    There is a small o-ring on your oil filler tube replace it even if it's not broken mine was stretched out bought a new one no more oil leaking out the breather tube
