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.
Because the engine manufacturer recommends it. They built the engine not the oil company and know what's good and what isn't for the engines they make.. Just my opinion...
