Also asked, can I use synthetic oil in Ariens snowblower?
Sure, you can use a 5W-30 (synthetic or dino) but after several hours of use, I bet this stuff has sheared down a full grade (eq. to 5W-20). That's fine if you are going to limit the interval to about 10 hours or so.
Beside above, can you use synthetic oil in a snowblower? EXPLORER SAE 5W30 Synthetic Snow Thrower Engine Oil Case Sold by the case (12 – 28-ounce bottles), this 5W-30 weighted synthetic oil is designed specifically for below freezing temperatures. Not only is designed for easy startup and engine protection but also helps protect against engine moisture and dirt.
Similarly, what is the best oil to use in a snowblower?
Motor oils with the recommended viscosity, 5W-30 or synthetic 0W-30, keep the engine running smoothly in the coldest winter conditions. The manufacturer warns that non-detergent or 2-cycle motor oils will damage and shorten the life of the engine.
