That's some good mileage. I've got almost three hundred hours now on this machine and I have had to change the airfilter three times and those things aren't cheap.

Don't the B series have an inside filter like the C series?

Yes, but the main air flow was from the outer filter, when that plugged, the inner filter just recirculated air.

I hope it works. Makes me wonder what even possessed them to put the cab filter right over the tracks and tires (conveyor belt anyone?) and right in front of the intake area for the engine

If I may.


He took a good bit of grief over that when he did it. Short story is the visibility looking through the screen was an irritant. Working in the open on a motocross track with few cacti large enough to cause issues he opted for the sawzaw.

Doing anything else with the machine (working in trees or in demo) probably would be a very bad idea, given what he does with it, probably not so bad. Might be a bit expensive when trading in, but who knows.

Ok.... I give up.... at the risk of seeming thick, what's the purpose of connecting the air cleaner to the exhaust and how does it work??
