What type of oil do I use in my Toro LX500?

In the northern US, I would use a 5W - 30 year round, or 30 in the summertime. Do not use "non-detergent".
In the southern US, I would use a 10W - 30 or 30 in the summertime. No non-detergent.

I need to change the oil - how

warm up the mower for a few minutes. This gets the oil thin and suspends the dirt in the oil.

Then, get a pan big enough to hold about 20 ounces of oil.

remove the oil filler cap and tip the mower towards the side of the filler neck with the pan

sitting on the ground next to the mower to catch the oil.

sit mower on its side for about 15 minutes and let all the oil drip out.

Tip it back up and fill her up! 18 ounces for small mower engines. 30 Weight Non-detergent oil.

Should i use oil with or without detergents in it? i found 30wt of both.

With a typical mower engine, detergent oils are the way to go. Usually non-detergent oils are for special applications such as air compressor pumps, which specifically call for non-detergent oils. Check you engine, if it is an overhead valve (OHV), then you will want to use a multi-viscosity oil (5W-30), but if it is not, then use the straight 30W.

What type of oil is used in a yard machine lawn mower model no. 11A-414E029

SAE 30WT i.e non detergent. Change oil every 25 hours and every 4th oil change us a detergent 30 WT oil.

The manuals will never tell you that but having worked on small engines since the mid 60's that 4th oil change with a detergent oil does a bang up job of keeping the oil ring from eventually cooking onto the piston. Also washes out the crank case and makes it look like new!

I have a mtd 6 hp push mower,what type of oil should i use for it?

Lawn mowers with engines smaller than 10 hp use a "splash" oil system for lubrication. Therefore you should use a standard SAE 30W non detergent oil. Per most user's manuals oil changes are every 25 hours of use. Every 4th oil change you can use a detergent 30W oil. Doing this will clean the inside of the crankcase and all components to the point the look brand new. It will not hurt the motor or the seals in the motor. However after this cleaning 25 hour period with the detergent oil, you should go back to SAE 30W oil again.

I cannot locate my manual; can you please tell me how to change the oil?

Simplest thing to do. Remove spark plug wire for safety. Remove oil filler plug. Tip mower to the side the filler neck is on with a bowl waiting on the ground next to the mower to catch the used oil. When empty, tip mower back upright and refill with 20 oz of 30 weight non-detergent oil. Put filler cap back in and check level. Replace spark plug wire. Thats it!
