Ariens Deluxe 30 First Oil Change

Hi,

I'm not near the manual at this time. I need to do the first 5 hour oil change. What oil should I use, and are there any filters I should replace?

after the 5 hour break in period you can use synthetic oil in it. I myself run 10w30 oil. the brand name is of your choosing.

I would put synthetic 5w-30 as it protects your engine better with temperature extremes.

Snow Removal Apparatus I own:
Ariens ST1530DLE, and good ole arm powered scrapper.
The 15 HP is a new Ducar engine sold
by Princess Auto in Canada.

To make life a little easier on you, assuming your drain plug is above the right tire like mine is, you should pop off that tire. Easy to do, just take off the spring clip deal on the axle. Once you block up that side. I block mine so it leans to that side. Kinda a 3 legged stool if you will

You must mean for the gear case and some units take 80w-90 and some take 0 grease. Better check your manual for the proper one.
