marilynjemison, ENGINE LUBRICATION: Only use high quality detergent oil rated with API service classification SG-SL or higher. Select the oil’s SAE viscosity grade according to your expected operating temperature, see chart below.

Change the oil after every 25 hours of operation or at least once a year if the tractor is not used for 25 hours in one year. Check the crankcase oil level before starting the engine and after each eight (8) hours of operation. Tighten oil fill cap/dipstick securely each time you check the oil level.

((( Also note))): Be careful of a cracked fuel tank which could possibly leak and catch fire. See link below as there was a recall for this defect.

Murray mowers use Briggs and Stratton engines, which have oil-weight requirements for use depending on the ambient temperature during operation. If you are mowing or using a snow plow attachment at colder temperatures, use a lower-weight oil like 5W30. For operating at a varying temperature range 6 degrees F and above, use 10W30 weight. For strictly warmer temperatures above 46 degrees F, SAE 30 is recommended. Otherwise, use 5W30 synthetic oil, which can be used at all operating temperatures.
