    Hey guys just wanted to get some opinions on maintaining some of my mowers. I have a quick36, and the 2006 model of the toro self pace 21" wb. I also use a pos husky 21" for backup. My question is how many hours should I be changing the oil? The quick 36 has a filter so it should last longer but the 21"s are not commercial and have no filters? Also should I've been changing the blades every 10 hours or so, should i sharpen sooner or let them go longer? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
