How many hours on an oil change?
The other thread on the 50 hour service interval got me thinking. The manual says engine oil "every 200 hours or yearly".
I am surprised how few hours I put on the 2305 since I use it year round for snow removal. I did the 50 hour service last spring and now have about 140 hours on it. I am probably going to change the engine oil and @ 150 hours. I can't see doing it at 90 hours as that is way sooner than the other parameter John Deere reccomends.
BTW, I am considering switching to synthetic oil since it isn't much more expensive than JD oil.
