    What would you guys recommend for the longest lasting in a Wright 36" walk behind that is used every day.

    No such thing as "longest lasting". Change the oil at reccomended intervals.

    If you meant "most durable", go for a synthetic (break it in on regular oil first).

    It has been broken in. I bought it used. You say synthetic. What type would you recommend.

    Penzoil platinum
    Mobil 1

    All of these are good.

    Here this is VERY good oil.

    I use Mobil 1 10-30 in the kawi engine on my Scag. Looks almost as clean at the change interval as new oil. Search synthetic oils on this site and the web in general for some good info.
