#4567086 - 11/07/17 06:07 PM Wood Chipper - What Oil?

Just obtained a used small Wood Chipper & need to change the crank case oil.

The chipper is a no-name brand, and is about 35 years old.

The motor is an older 5 HP Briggs & Stratton, black color.


I assume that 30 wt, or maybe a 15w40 is good? We will be using it in winter and spring...about 35-65 degree temps.


Thanks,
GL

Got anything in your stash you're been meaning to get rid of? I wouldn't hesitate to put in 15w40, 10w40, 5w40, 10w30, 5w30

I assume multi weight (10w30) is ok, for this B&S engine?

I'd change it and run it for a while and change it again. I'd do a 10w-40 or a 15w-40.

This, flush it with anything on hand and then refill with something good.
