From my new to me Toro manual.

Initially, the crankcase must be filled with 20 ounces(0.55 liters) of SAE 30 oil; 10W-30 oil may be substituted. if SAE 30 is not available. Use any high quality detergent oil having the American petroleum Institute (API)“service classification”—SF, SG, SH or SJ.

I noticed the word 'must', do not think I have seen that before.
I plan on using what I used in my Honda mower. Mobil 1 10W30 EP.

"must be filled" as in "there is no oil in there"

Go to your local auto parts store. Walk over to the 10w-30 oil selection. Close your eyes and grab one. It won't make a bit of difference.

Use Safari.

It'll let you use the same photo upload icons as any Windows machine.

They let you use all the WAAAY back to SF?
The lubrication needs of that engine are Very, VERY low.

10w30 may be substituted, it says. So yes, What you did before is perfectly fine. In fact, its better than SAE 30.

The Mobil 1 10w30 will work fine.

As long as the oil level is full in small engines they will be fine.

My 2008 Toro 22" Recycler with a 6.5 Briggs was bought brand new. It has had SAE 30, 10w30, 10w30 synthetic, 5w40 Rotella, etc, and runs perfect with no smoke.
