Oil? Gas? Additives?


We just bought a lightly used MTD Yard machine shredder/chipper 5hp model# 24A462B062. Do you know what type oil it takes? How about the gas? Additives? Do you know where we could find a manual? Many thanks! Bob

Small engines like to see SAE30 oil. This is assuming a 4 stroke engine of course (if you have an oil filler spout and dip stick you have a 4 stroke engine). Use regular unleaded gas, and personally I mix STA-BIL into ALL of that gas I use with my small engines. I have too many carburetors to take the chance of needing to rebuild them in the spring.
Manuals for MTD products are here: http://manuals.mtdproducts.com/mtd/public/list.jsp
You will need model and serial numbers

Synthetic 30 will last long time.

JUST GO TO HOME DEPOT OR LOWES . THEY'LL GIVE YOU THE ANSWER
