B/c at those changes.....you will surely for the most part, not run into any issues....BUT....car manufacturers say to change you motor oil at 3-K. Most mechanics will tell you on dino oil you can go to 5-K these days. I run Amsoil in my Tundra and go to 15-K. An oil report doesn't lie.

Why throw away good oil? If it is totally fine changing every 125-150 hours...why change at 50?

BTW-I sent in oil from this same mower at 50 hours....there was still TONS of additives in the oil....50 hours was a waste.
