Thanks for all of the input. I changed the oil and filter when I first found it to be low, have run it about 15 more hours and the level is staying consistent.
Gladly no damage done, I will sure check things from the factory before running in the future

Excellent! You'll be fine with the maintenance routine on it. Is really hard to damage these tough engines, really, even when a bit low as is perceived by us. Don't forget to change the oil\filter at the 20 hr. mark which normally is the first time but you're ahead of the curve. Good luck then.

It also helps to pre-charge the filter, filling it with oil prior to installing. It takes a minute and saves ten!
