    Anyone have a newer model Husqvarna 42” deck riding mower?

    Manual calls for 48 ounces of oil without filter change, 56 with. I changed out the filter and she only took 48 ounces. There must be tens of thousands of these mowers out there, I’m hoping some others can share some data points.

    Model is a YTH18542.

    Did you start it and then recheck the oil level? I have a husqy but don't remember if there was any difference last time I changed the oil.

    Yeah, I did my usual, ran it for about 30 seconds and then checked. I mowed the lawn but it was almost dark when I was done so I’ll check again when I get home.

    Did you put oil into the filter before installing it and not count it?

    Are you sure you fully drained out all the old oil?

    Are you sure you are inserting the dipstick properly (some screw on oil sticks require level to be checked without screwing it in)

    I didn't put oil in the new filter (does anyone do that? I would think it would just drip everywhere immediately). As far as draining the oil I let it drain for about 30 minutes while I went and did other stuff, it definitely was complete drained. And I drained it after running the motor for a couple minutes so it was warm. And my manual says to insert dipstick and screw cap tight, which is what I did, and the oil was all the way at the top of the full mark. Maybe running it for 30 seconds wasn't enough to fill the filter. I'll check again after this storm passes. Thanks for the ideas though.
