What do you think if this hydro filter

This filter seems to fit the bill for an alternative to the exmark filters. It's a 10 micron hydro filter, not oil filter, with the same thread and is the same size as the exmark.

Mine calls for a 109-4180 bi-directional 25 micron. I have used 10 micron in the past with no problems.

Why take the risk when changing a hydro filter is so infrequent. By saving a few dollars now it could cost you much more down the road.

I've used this filter for a little while now on an older laser z and its worked great. I think the most important things to consider are size, threads, hydro not oil, and micron size. This filter meets those requirements so I figured I'd pass it along to anyone trying to save money. I know your only suppose to change the filter yearly or every 400 hours or something like that, but money is money so this filter will fit the bill and save some money

I agree with both Snyder and Sprinkler Buddy. I'll find other ways to save a few bucks.
