Comparing (3) AMSOIL 10w-30 for Outdoor Power Equipment

Pro and Cons of:
- 10w-30 ASE (Small Engine oil)
- 10w-30 ATM (Sig. Series)
- 10w-30 ZRT (Z-Rod)

I am currently using ASE, however, none of the equipment has a wet clutch. I understand that ASE lacks some kind of friction additive? so that it is wet clutch compatible.

Being used in Pressure Washer, Honda EU2000i, mowers, etc. Would I be better served with the ATM or ZRT oil? All are air cooled and none have a oil filter.

No.

I'm not an Amsoil fan boy, but they make a special 20w-50 for zero turn hydro transmissions. That is what I use.

I have used ASE for over a decade in all my small engines that call for sae30 or 10w30.
I have found it to be a very robust oil, keeps my engines spotless inside, and takes the heat well and doesnt burn off.
Use it with confidence!
