Also know, can I use 10w30 oil in my lawn mower?

Yes! We have modified our engine oil recommendations to state that you may now use a synthetic 5W30 (100074WEB) or 10W30 oil in all temperature ranges. We recommend the use of Briggs & Stratton Synthetic Oil. Engine break-in procedures using synthetic oil remain the same.

Likewise, how much oil should I put in my Toro lawn mower? The engine oil capacity should be 0.47 L (16 oz), the oil viscosity should be SAE 30 or SAE 10W-30 detergent oil, and the API service classification should be SJ or higher. Move the machine to a level surface. Remove the dipstick by rotating the cap counterclockwise and pulling it out.

Herein, can I use 10w30 instead of SAE 30 in my lawn mower?

Yes; you can make use of it. But there are other factors you need to consider. These include temperature and the engine. Older engines can use the SAE30, while the 10W30 is for modern engines.

What kind of oil does my lawnmower take?

While SAE 30 motor oil is commonly recommended for lawn mower engines, each engine manufacturer's recommendation may be unique and might include recommendations based on your local climate.
