2. Engine oil
The engine should be warm (but not hot) when
changing the oil. Warm oil flows out faster and
leaves a smaller quantity of old oil inside the engine.
1. Place a suitable vessel underneath the oil
drainage screw. Remove the oil dipstick and
the oil drainage screw (5) on the back surface
of the engine.
Tip: Make a channel using a piece of cardboard to
lead the oil directly into the vessel and avoid soiling
the machine chassis.
2. Allow the engine oil to drain into the vessel; then
replace the drainage screw. Tighten it
moderately.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION
Used engine oil is a health hazard and
legislation prohibits disposal on the
ground or in nature; it should always be
disposed of at a workshop or appropriate
disposal location. Avoid skin contact; wash
with soap and water in case of spills.
3. Make sure the machine is parked on flat ground.
Fill with new oil using the appropriate viscosity
according to the diagram, API Service SF-SG,
to the upper level mark on the dipstick = threads
on the oil dipstick (2). The engine takes 1.16 qts.
(1.1 liters) of oil. When checking the oil level, the
dipstick should not be screwed in.
4. Check that the rubber gasket is in position and
screw the dipstick back into place. DO NOT
thighten it askew or too hard or you may
damage the threads.
5. Wipe up any spilled oil.
