    If the manufacturer approves and the oil fits the application why wouldn't you?

    Bobcat ex 10W30 is recommended if not buying bobcat brand oil.

    Toro recommended 10w-30 diesel motor oil, and later added 15w-40. My dealer says the 10w-30 is much better in colder weather. However, the Mobil promotion is on the 15w-40.

    At that price I might change it again at the end of the fall, so 10w-30 could be used then.

    I guess i still think too much in terms in tractors. Put motor oil powershift tractor and you'll be splitting it before long.
