if its a snow blower, its gonna see some cold weather......do not use straight 30. 5w-30 would be good. or 0w-30 would myself prefer syn.

A good, synthetic 5W-30 or 0W-30 is what you want. Straight 30 will be like molasses.

I have a 7hp Simplicity snowthrower that I bought new in 1988 and the manual calls for 5w30. I have used 5w30 dino exclusively with no problems and no oil usage.

any of the 30 weight multi-viscosity oils are probably a fine choice ... but I'd change the oil often as the newer oils thin so quickly.

Change it at least once per season (in the spring, before you put it away) or twice if you work it hard in a year we get a lot of snow.
