    If it calls for mobil1 15w-50, why not use that?

    No... Hell no. Putting tranny oil in really would be a grass disaster.

    grass, that is what eXmark calls for so I would not do anything different, or else you'll be spending more than a few $ on just oil, it'll be more like a few thousand $'s on repairs.

    If the Amsoil is a Synthetic oil then you should be fine.

    I use Amsoil in my Scag hydros that call for 20W50---no problems at all. I wasn't aware Amsoil had the "15w50" in their product line that Exmark and Toro calls for ..I knew they carried "15w40".
