Is this the correct oil to use in my snowblower?

I have a Toro 726 and it says:

"Use automotive detergent oil with an API service classifcation of SF, SG, SH, SJ, SL, or higher."

Is this oil ok to use: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B006P0WNMW ? It says "Meets API SN and ILSAC GF-5", and I assume 'SN' as referenced herein is higher than SL... so I should be ok, correct?

Thank you!

Any 10W 30 will work fine.

From their manual:

Engine: Engine Oil Type
23.7 oz. (0.7 L) 10w 30 / 5w 30 Synthetic

So, yes. And SN is higher.

Thanks everyone. Much appreciated. I wasn't sure about the SN, SL... It made sense that it would be higher, I just wasn't sure.
