    I have a Scag hydro walk behind, no hydro oil cooler. Was wondering what weight oil to use, I'm changing fluid and filters. I've seen 10w-30 and 20w-50 listed, wondering what would be best.

    castrol 20-50,you don't need synthetic, you need to change it often,water is the enemy and heat + dirt.

    20w-50 is what is recommended.
