I looked in the retail stores today, and see that these air filters are selling for $6.99 ea for the flat square B&S filters, and $12.99+ for the kohlers .. i use to pay $1.25/$1.50 for them, just a few years ago..
i know ill have to buy in bulk but damn....

there was a sponsor link from this site, i clicked on a few years ago, they had good prices, but i dont see them anymore

Do you have the part numbers on those two filters?

Have you considered placing a "spring" order with your dealer.

I know that several dealers in my area will offer very good prices on common parts like plugs, filters, oil filters, blades etc. if you buy in quantity during the off-season. Most dealers are getting their spring orders together in oct-nov. and would love to add to their order.

Dealers make good mark-up on the fast-moving parts because they require the least amount of work to find.

I bet you could save an average of 30-50% off dealer list if you stopped in with all your part numbers and quantities to place a large order. Couldn't hurt to try talking to a few local places that are there to help you out during the season.

I buy all my parts from my local dealer. Don't care if they cost a buck or two more.
For all that I get great support and loaner equipment when needed.
Why save 10 dollars a year on nit noid stuff when they break down and you run around to find a stupid part.

i agree.. but i dont wait until the last min...

i change my filters and fluids every month (if not more). running 3 or 4 mowers.. that is more than just $10 a year..

now if my dealer gave me free loaner i would stay with him..
but $9 for something that only cost $3 elsewhere, is a lil too much (times 20 or 40 items a year)

but id prefer to buy ahead of time.. i buy 10x or 20x and keep instock until i run out.

i'm making my 2010 shopping list now for filters, plugs, etc.
i prefer to buy in bulk..

I've seen aftermarket sold in packs of 5 for 3.75 ea plus shipping and when you buy 3 or more packs the price drops to 3.50 each plus shipping. This is the Briggs 491588 replacement.

Check out Tulsa Engine Warehouse. 491588 OEM's can be had for $4,73 ea, 5/21.29(4.26) or 336/1069.88(3.18). After markets are $1.75 ea or 1.50ea for 50 or more.

I have ordered a number of engines and parts from them and get good delivery times. Engines usually ship free and they have a standard charge for other orders regardless of size.

GOOD MORNING....DUTCH

Glad you could join us today.....Business in central Fla is flat...
If it gets much slower, I'll move my business onto the internet and take the summer off. (I say this every May)
