Blue smoke usually indicates burning oil. There may be some residual oil in the cylinder that burns off when the engine is started. Do you use much oil when the engine runs? Keep an eye on the oil; level.

The oil was low in my Cub Cadet SLT 1550 so i filled it up, and after about 5 minutes the engine started smoking blue, smelled like oil and after a few seconds it turned really cloudy white

remove the spark plug and try and crank it over see if oil spits out you might have dumped it in to fast and it went threw the breather

I would say that you have worn or cracked piston tings and perhaps in need of a new head gasket. After you have had it running for awhile and then shut it off for a short period and restart it does it smoke as much as it would after waiting for an hour?With any sort of luck maybe your engine has not seen much use and will straighten up.You might try some sea-foam in both the gas and crankcase to help clean up the engine.You can get this product at most auto parts store.I have been using it for thirty years in all my engines small and large and think it's an excellent product. Best of luck and thank you.

Hi, change the oil and your problem will be solved. Basically it was over full because fuel has by-passed the carby needle and leaked into the sump while its been sitting idle. Regards Phil.

Heavy blue smoke is burning oil.

I expect the spark plug fouled in those few seconds. After winterising the spark plug usually needs cleaning several times before there is a reliable start and continued running.

Smoke problem

there are couple of smoke smoke is oil, black smoke is fuel, and white smoke is water, if it clears after starting and running a few minutes it's probably your valve guide seals leaking oil down on top of your pistons, causing it to smoke until burned off and foul your plugs.
