How to determine the oil level on dip stick

I just received a new toro super recycler lawn mower 20381. I used manual that came with the mower to set it up. In the manual the dip stick has criss-cross lines, as shaded area to show max oil level, the real dip stick doesn't have such shaded area but it has two holes. I assumed that the upper hole shows max level and the lower hole shows min level of the oil. Am I right? I tried to contact the toro mower customer service but they don't know such things and sent me to authorized dealer that is located who knows where. Is any body know how to determine max and min level on dipstick of my toro mower?

In other products, the upper hole is max and the lower hole is min. Somebody at Toro forgot to change the manual when the dipstick was reengineered.

I put too much oil in the mower over the past couple months. Two days ago the mower began steaming. I shut it down immediately. Today I did an oil change and cleaned the mower up but after I started it,...


If you already changed oil and it is at proper level on dip stick let it run for about 5 minutes to burn out any excess oil in cylinder, if it continues to smoke you probably blew a gasket or seal on engine.If that is the case you are looking at buying a new mower unless if it under warranty or you have a cheap mechanic.

I have a Toro Super Recycler GTS 6.5 HP. Upon starting the mower white smoke comes out of the exhaust (silver housing) on the front. The smoke stops after about 2 minutes of running. Any ideas??


Oil level too high? *(check oil level with dipstick fully screwed down!)

or

Leaking valve guide *(rare.)

Cylinder walls not sealing well and oil leaking past rings. *(less rare...nothing you really can do about....just getting used up)

I would change the oil and be very careful to fill only within the full range.
Then, run the unit once to clear the muffler out.

Good luck and be careful!
