    I just took delivery of a new Lawnboy 10550 with the duraforce engine. The Lawnboy operators manual say to use "NMMA TCW III-certified two-cycle ashless oil". On the MX2T bottle its says "API TC, JASO FC, ISO-L-EGD". If have seen MX2T recommended for 2 cycle engines on this and other forums. I want to use MX2T and have 2 questions.

    1 - Should I be concerned that Lawnboy says to use an oil with a different certification than MX2T.

    2 - If the answer to question 1 is that I should not be concerned, do you reccommend that I break in the engine with dino 2 cycle oil? BTW the mower was setup by my local OPE dealer with Redmax oil at 50:1.
