    If you have the owners manual it should be in there.
    Might list capacities in the engine compartment somewhere too.
    Good luck.

    12 quarts sounds about right. One of my guys changed the oil today and said it took 13 quarts... guess I better check it and make sure it is not overfilled. I usually pay a shop to change the oil in my cabover, but after the last $120 bill when I supplied 3 gallons of oil... I will change my own damn oil. I think I paid one my guys $50 in wages to change the oil in 3 trucks, 3 mowers and one dingo, and changed the blades/grease on three ZTRs... can't beat that.
