Toro Snow Blower Oil Change
Is your Toro Snow Blower in need of an oil change? Keep your Toro Snow Blower running properly all winter by following an oil change schedule. Performing regular maintenance on your snow blower can keep it prepared for the next big snow storm.
Before starting, refer to your owner’s manual for your snow blowers oil change schedule, the oil recommended for your snow blower, and any specific tools needed for your snow blower model.
*Before servicing your snow blower make sure the snow blower is turned off and remove the ignition key to reduce the risk of accidental start-up.
Changing the Oil
1) Warm the Engine
Start the engine for a few minutes to warm the oil, allowing it to drain easier. Once oil is warmed, shut the engine off and allow it to cool before servicing your snow blower.
2) Remove Oil Dipstick
3) Locate Oil Drain Plug
4) Oil Drain Pan
Catch the oil as it drains by placing an oil drain pan under the oil drain plug.
5) Drain Oil
Drain the oil by loosening the drain plug with your socket wrench, making sure to catch it with the drain pan.
6) Reinstall Oil Drain Plug
7) Refill With New Oil
Place the funnel in the oil fill tube and fill with 5W-30 oil.
8) Check Oil Level
Check the oil level after refilling, as well as before and after every use. Check the oil level by looking at the oil dipstick.
9) Reinstall Oil Dipstick
Twist the oil dipstick back into the oil fill tube and clean up any excess oil.
10) Check for Leaks
Check for any oil leaks by starting the engine for a few minutes.
By following an oil change schedule you can keep your snow blower running all winter long. Make sure to check your oil level before and after every use to make sure you have the correct amount to run your snow blower. Fill or change if needed.
Keep your snow blower prepared for the next storm and prolong the life of your engine by performing regular oil changes.
