Oil change already? But, still it's best to follow what Honda says.

Briggs and Stratton make what seems to me the extraordinary claim that their engines (or at least some series including the type our mower uses) never need an oil change. I think that in practice, I will change the oil every second or more likely third mowing season.

I'm forever adjusting height with our petrol mower. Full height is needed to get it in or out of the shed and minimum is needed if I want to park it neatly with the body going under a shelving unit. I also use two different heights for mowing, cutting "our patch" at a lower setting than I do for the rougher other bits.
