Exmark OEM hydro filters?

I have been using the hydro-gear filters as I could get them for less than $10 a piece. Went to place an order for them and I read the specs at 10 micron.

Exmark calls for a 25 micron bi-directional filter. The only filter I could find with these specs is the Exmark filter. These cost $35 at all the local dealers.
I can get them for $23.xx plus shipping online.

What do you guys think of running the 10 micron when the manufacture calls for a 25 micron?

FWIW I ordered the Exmark filter.

I always thought exmark hydro filters were 10 micron. Looks like hydrogear would have the right filter for it. I have always used exmark filters but was thinking about looking at hydro gear.

It's not a good idea. Actually, I have been subbing 25 micron for 10.
Definitely a better flow rate, being a suction filter. Cavitation isn't
a good thing. Heat is the main enemy of these systems, then abuse
then dirt. Those prices sound high. What are the part numbers.
I can check if the cross to Toro.

1-633750 is a Toro one that should be the same. MSRP is around 16.50 I think.

The exmark number I use is 10 micron. This is what was on it when I bought it. I want use anything else. The finest trash that gets through a filter will take out a hydro. Don't care to use anything larger than 10 micron, hydos to expensive to chance it...

114-3494 is a 25 micron MSLP is $12.50
1-633750 is a 10 micron as posted by pugs.
These are not bi-directional filters, and for the life of me, I can't
see why they would even use one. Bi-directional are "usually"
pressure filters used in-line of a load. Unless they are using
a internal bypass? (which also makes no sense)
What do you own?
BTW 109-4180 list price is $23.67. The dealers cost can and does vary.

I own a first generation Exmark Lazer Z and a Dixie Chopper Classic and I read on here somewhere that they were using the same filter for the Dixie as they were the Exmarks.

Just curious, where are you finding specs on what micron the 1-633750 is? There is nothing in the descriptions of that particular part from Toro in parts lookup or ordering.
