I just bought this mower a few weeks ago and have only used it a couple times so im not real formiliar with everything yet.... but after i mowed today and i ideled down the engine the oil light came on and it started buzzing at me... according the the manual that only occurs when there is something wrong with the oil pressure.. is this actually the problem or is there something else going on that im not aware of?
hope to hear some input... thanks!

Hmmm......
It could be low on oil after or during the break in period.
Have you called your dealer and let them know?
Check the oil before starting the engine again, add oil if needed.
Regardless, please call the dealer to let them know what is happening.

My demo SuperZ 66" 26hp LC Kawi did the same exact thing.

I think the sending unit for the idiot light might be a bit sensitive.

just took the mower to the shop and they are also thinking its the oil sending unit so hopefully they can get it all fixed up!

My demo last year did it to until about 20 hrs then it seemed to stop. But I didn't buy that one because of it.

the dealer claims they fixed it but it also seems as if they raised the idle RPMs for it so it wont get the low oil pressure now.... i dont know if that is the right thing to do or not but it seems to be ok for now....

Keep a eye on the light and let the dealer know if it shows up again.
I am thinking after some hours the unit will be broken in comfortably and this will be a non issue.
