SAE30 is used in most Briggs and Stratton engines.

SAE 30 or 10W30 full synthetic any major brand.



No, it is far to heavy. Use only SAE 10w30 or SAE 30.


No. Depending on the mower, the correct oil will be SAE 30 or SAE 40. Make sure it is NON-DETERGENT


SAE 30 weight or SAE 10w30 if it is to be used in cool temperatures. I highly recommend you use a synthetic oil in any air cooled engine. Change the oil once a year unless you mow commercially.


SAE 30 weight or SAE 10w30 any major brand, if you use it in cool temperatures. I highly recommend you use synthetic oil in this air cooled engine. Change your oil once a year unless you mow commercially.


All of them that I've had ran happily on 5W-30.


SAE 30 weight or SAE 10W-30 weight. I recommend you use 100% synthetic oil in your air-cooled engine.



Only SAE 30 is equivalent to SAE-30


That depends on which engine is in the mower. If it is a Briggs it takes SAE 30. If it is a Kohler it usually takes 10W-30.


Most all riding mowers use SAE 30 oil.



SAE 10w30 or SAE 30 Synthetic any brand in the engine.


If the manufacturer of the lawnmower specifies only SAE 30 then do not use SAE 10W-30. However on most mowers you can use either weight. I highly recommend you use synthetic oil in any air cooled engine.


Unless otherwise specified by the owners manual, SAE 30 is a good weight oil.


SAE 30 weight or SAE 10w30 if you use it at all in cooler temperatures. I highly recommend synthetic oil in any air cooled engine.



That depends on the mower and engine. I have Cub Cadet rider with a 16 hp Kohler engine that does call for 10w30. A lot of others call for sae 30 only.


SAE 30 weight in the summer or SAE 10w30 if you use it in cool temperatures. I highly recommend synthetic oil in any air cooled engine.


Yes, that is an optional oil weight that you can use. However if you are only using the mower in warm weather then SAE 30 weight is a better choice. I recommend you use Synthetic oil in an air cooled engine.



Im am asked this alot. The type of OIL used in any lawn mower or lawn tractor depends on where YOU LIVE... In the South you use only SAE-30, in the NORTH you can use SAE-30 and some multi-grade oils 10w 30 is about the best for use in the north if you choose to use multi-grade oils. SAE-30 will allow the engine to last longer when in use under high temps, as multi-grade oils change viscosity when being heated and does not work well in the southern regions.


I use straight SAE 30 weight. I live in the south and only run my machine in the summer.


10w-30 if it's above 32 degrees, sae 30w is acceptable above 50 degrees. k series and magnum engines should use only sae 30 above freezing or 5w-30 below freezing
