    My commerical mower have to fill up oil every one-two weeks. it used up the oil from the motor. There is no leak. I think it might be the motor or something with rings on pistion?

    the engine runs good. it cuts real good. it runs very well but why eat up the oil?

    it's either leakin or burning it. have you checked underneath where the output shaft comes out of the engine?

    Does it smoke? Is it leaking? How old is it? What kind of engine? What kind of mower? We need more info to help you.

    Give us some additional info such as how old the motor is, how many hours are on it and how much oil it uses.
