quick oil question

first time tractor owner
Have to chage the oil and was wondering if i can use regular ole 5w30 motor oil. My make/model is Craftsman 275660...20hp Kohler Courage.
Also, how about the oil filter...looks like a regular ole car oil filter?

Thanks

You'll use SAE 5W30 only in the winter months, provided your in a cold climate area. For summertime use you will use SAE 30W. As far as the oil filters go, every oil filter generally has different pressure relief and anti-drain characteristics. I'd stick with genuine Kohler repair parts.
