If the temp in your area gets below 32 degrees in winter and U R going to use it then. USE SAE 20 Weight, if area is above 42 to 80 + use Straight SAE 30 Weight of a good standard Name Brand Oil. You will be fine. Don't forget change the Filter at each oil change too. Have a good running Cub...and Enjoy It.......

New tractor purchase, I suggest the first oil be a straight weight detergent, either 20 or 30. That is to see if the engine burns a lot of oil.

If you have other machinery that you change their oil, use the same oil.

Personally I use a generic, store named, 20W50, purchased by the case, in all my machines. Reason I use one brand and weight is that it's simpler to have just one oil on hand.
I have an excuse. CRS.
