hello, just picked up my 1st emark lazer hp and its brand new and was wondering how soon should i change the hydro oil also, is it hard to do or should i take it to a dealer?what about the engine oil? how soon should i change it for break-in?
I purchased a new scag today, hydro change is 500 hours and the engine is 10 hours and its a kohler, but different manufactures have different intervals , I would call my dealer back and ask them. And I quess it depends on how mechanically inclined you are if you or the dealer preforms this service
Dealer should have gone over this when you bought it. Most new units come with break-in oil in the engine which needs to be changed after 8-10 hours. My dealer gave me the oil filter for the first change.
On mine it said once a year. I can do a lot of maintenance, but for the $$ and being only once a year, I'll let the dealer do mine, at least for the first year(don't want any questions if there's a problem with the hydro and warranty).
