Oil leakage. Help!

I have a new Yard Machine push mower. I ran over a sea shell and the blade got bent. Also, there was oil leakage in front at an enormous rate. It appears to come out from the rt (oil input on the left) and from the engine. I replace the oil but it immediately leaked again. thanks for your response

Based on your post, I can't get a clear picture of exactly where the oil is coming from. But, also based on your post and due to hitting an object, I'd say you have a bent crankshaft and the oil is coming from the lower (PTO) oil seal. You may also, coincidentally, have a sump (oil pan) gasket leakage. And worst case, you may have cracked the sump. You will have to degrease this mower up thoroughly and then add oil and try to determine where exactly you have trouble.
