Oil for John Deere 1130SE

Can you use 5W-40 Lucas synthetic for the John Deere 1130SE? I know the chart in the manual recomends 5W-30 synthetic. But would 5W-40 work better? It the sales guy told me its for snowmobiles.

Just bought the New 1130SE from a John Deere dealer in my home town. I have spent all day reading the manual and checking the machine. I found that everything was inplace and assembly and all parts were there. The only problem I found was that there was way too much oil in it. The delivery man started the machine a couple of times for me to show me how it worked. I got the extra oil out and checked for any blown seals but all seams fine. Just a note that if you buy one to check the oil before you start.

The Auger is 14in

I haven't gotten into the gut of the machine yet but the Easy Steer system works great. Both wheels turn one faster then the other to accomplish the turn. The regular guy that deals with the snow blowers was in the States for traning so I didnt get much info.

The electric shoot rotation is really cool... but I think there is potential for a jam in the snow. Im looking forward to the first storm.
