    I have a Toro Superpro Recycler II, walk behind mower. Is this commercial? I am not sure of the year or anything. I got the lawn mower, when my father had purchased a warehouse, and the mower was inside, with the original owner, being long gone.

    Just make sure you change the oil regularly. My dad had one that lasted him 20 years

    What kind of oil will I need? And I just checked the oil on it today, and it seems good so far.

    You should use regular 30 weight oil

    Yeah, right ... I disagree !! Generally speaking, if it's not a commercial machine then it won't stand up to the rigors of commercial service.

    If you use it for commercial use, it is now commercial :D

    It may only last you a year or so, but it'll be commercial until you run it into the ground. I started with a Troybilt from Lowes, that was my commercial unit. Had to replace 5 v belts on it in one season and a wheel, but hey...
