During the winter months where the temperature is frequently below freezing, most engine maunufacturers recommend to use a 10W30 SAE oil.
The thinner, multi-weight oil will allow your tractor to start easier in the colder temp. When the temps are higher, just go back to the 30W SAE oil.
Remember to always use a high quality oil. Lawn tractor engines use the same quality of oil as cars do, so get yourself some Pennzoil or Castrol or Havoline or whatever you normally use in your car.
Most lawn tractor engine use about 48 ounces to perform a complete oil change.

Good luck!

Snow blower will not throw snow far


I take it that you have a 2-stage snow blower, that is is has the auger blades and then the 2-stage impeller. The impeller blade is damaged <<OR>> the motor is to small to through the snow far. If you have a 5-horse engine and throwing heavy snow, the snow may not go as far as the light fluffy stuff.
A single stage snow thrower is not designed to throw snow far, just move it over a bit.

When snow is the least bit wet the blower won't pick it up and it gets cloaked in the shut. Will spraying the shut with WD40 or PAM eliminate this problem?


it sounds like you have a pretty small snow thrower, Here in northern michigan anything less than a 8 horse power will not work except on light fluffy snow. To answer your question, Yes that might help. any thing that reduces friction will make it work better. I really need a little more info before I can be of help on this. can you tell me what size (width) the blower path is, the horse power of the motor, the make of the device and also, is it one or two stage. when I hear back from you I'll try to be of more assistance.
