Congrats on your purchase. I would read my owners manual and follow the shops advice for break-in. Happy mowing.

This is how I break in my diesels.Check all fluid levels daily during break in,do not apply a heavy load to the engine until its fully warmed up,but do not let it idle to warm up for more than a minute tops,just go easy on it until its up to temp.Do not lug the engine during break in,if the grass is to tall,or its laboring slow down til it catches up with the load. Let it cool by idling for 30 seconds before shutting down. Change the oil and filter after first 25 hrs,then follow normal schedule for oil changes.Good luck with your new mower,Yanmar makes one of the best diesels there is,it will outlast the mower easily with proper care. John
