Given we live in a rural area, it can be a challenge trying to find the right air and oil filter for our Simplicity Broadmor 16 Hydro tractor. It has a Kohler engine and the air and oil filters are readily available on Amazon. It makes life way easier to just order them. Sometimes I’ll get a deal on several and have one for the following year.
So, just to make things easy for you, here are links if you need to order them:
I only change the oil filter once a year. If there’s a real good deal, I might buy a two pack. You can search and double check prices.
For the air filter, I definitely use the model with the pre-cleaner. The foam pre-cleaner catches a ton of dust. Each year I have to clean and re-oil the pre-cleaner several times due to all the dust.
I change these each season plus I grease the oil fittings. When we got the tractor I asked the mechanic who delivered it what would be the one thing he’d recommend to get long life from the tractor. Of course he pointed out the oil and air filters but then he added to make sure to keep the tractor greased using the Zerk fittings and I have ever since.
I hope this helps you out some as well.
