    I am wondering if some of you can give me your best recommendations for oil for a Command Pro 25 Kohler. Its on a Exmark LazerZ 60".

    Also I am making my own version of a striping kit for my personal use. I am debating between the mudflap version or the chains version of the homemade striping kit. I have a sloping yard not sure if that matters.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Chains will usually leave a better stripe, I always ran mobil 10w-30 in my 25 kohlers

    I got a lot of noise with Mobil 1 10w30 so I switched to Pennzoil 10w30 and I haven't had a problem since.
