    I noticed my cv20 on a lazer hp has an oil sentry-Will this shut engine down if oil pressure gets low?? what is it used for on a lazer? I would hope it would not shut down the mower,this could be very -very dangerous in some of my mowing areas.Very curious on its function. Thanks LazerZHP

    Hello Lazer HP,
    The Lazers have an oil pressure switch that is used to power the hour meter. This way the hour meter only runs when the engine is running.

    There is no automatic shutdown for the very reason that was mentioned - it is important to allow the operator to decide when to shut the engine off, not at some uncontrolled potentially dangerous or inconvenient time.
    Thanks Brian
