How to Check Oil
The ride-on mower should be cold, on level ground and tires should be evenly pumped.
If your mower has already been running, just allow the oil to settle for few minutes before checking.
Locate the dipstick. Usually they are positioned on the side of the engine.
The dipstick itself will be marked with an oil symbol or can be brightly coloured.
Dipsticks come in different styles but all do the same job.
A lower mark (L) and an full mark (F). When the oil level is in the hatched area, it's OK, but aim to have it at the F mark.
4 Low Oil
This oil level is way too low.
It's below the low oil level mark indicated here by the hole.
5 Add Oil
Add oil in small amounts and this will prevent over filling.
Let the oil settle before checking.
6 Oil Ok
This is the correct level for oil.
Check the oil with every refuelling.
7 Too Full
Too much oil here, it's way above the full mark. This can damage the engine, cause oil leaks and excessive white smoke.
If the oil level is very full, it will stall the engine.
