New TroyBilt Mower White Smoke

I just bought a new TroyBilt (TB130) with a Honda engine. Got it home, put the oil in the engine and some gas in the tank. It started first pull but I noticed some white smoke coming out of the exhaust. It that something I should be concerned about or is it normal on a new engine?

Check that the oil is not over full, let it set and run for a while to see if it clears up, white/blue smoke is oil. Have a good one. Geo

Make sure the oil level is right, then I wouldn't worry about it for now. Run it for a while and the smoke will likely disappear. On a new engine there would be oil residue inside the exhaust and engine that will take a little time to burn out.
