    I've used my 20 HP Walker for around75-80 hours now. It seems to be using up oil quicker than I expected. I had the first oil change at about 5 hours, the second at around 40 hours. Since I check the oil regularly I noticed that in between each change I am loosing close to a quart. Is this normal since it is still being broken in???

    I don't have personal experience with a Walker but alot of other brands, Kohler, Kawasaki, Briggs, Honda etc. and anytime I'm losing oil at that rate I'd be looking for a problem. Rings, gaskets, seals something. Ask your dealer to thoroughly check it out before the warranty runs out.
