Customer Question
I bought push lawn...

I bought push lawn mower with Briggs & Stratton Just Add & Add technology. However, lawn mower did come with Oil bottle and does have the fuel and oil filler cap. This is confusing. Does the mower really need the oil and fuel to operate?

Mechanic's Assistant: What's the make and model of the mower? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

The model number is *****###-##-#### and it is brand new; has never been used. The briggs and stratton engine is model 100000.

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes, certainly

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Just need to know whether or not, it is necessary to use the oil in the lawn mower; since it has the " Just check and Add' technology.

yes the engine needs fuel and oil to operate. This engine has the just add oil technology, meaning there is no need to change the oil. you will need to pour the oil that came with the mower into the oil spot as it comes with no oil and engine will lock up if ran with no oil
