    I'm looking to order and I was comparing your prices to J-thomas. J-thomas is cheaper but if you stock better products I will place my order with you. I need a bunch of PM stuff for my Exmark Lazer Z

    Done. So are the parts OEM or just a better quality then J-thomas? I was also looking for tune up parts for my 27hp Kohler and it's hard to find what I need. I have the donelson air filter and didn't see replacement filters for it.

    i set your account status to commercial. when you login with your email and password that you set you should see the discounted prices. let me know if you encounter any troubles.

    all of our branded parts are oem parts, some of them are also tagged with less expensive alternative brands like oregon and rotary whose quality are just as good.

    what is your model and serial number for your kohler?

    i did a little digging, and i'm by no means an expert, but it seems to me like the donaldson air filters either didn't come stock on the ch740s or came stock on certain special variations of the engine.

    stupid question, but do you know the brand and part number of your air filter?

    No I don't. I looked around and didn't see it available for any of the Kohlers on your site. It seems it's a pretty popular air filtration system for these engines.
    I'll be getting another order together soon so if we can locate it on your site then I'll order one. I was impressed with the ability to pin point the part i want on your site. It's like going to a dealer online. As you can see I ordered a lot of odds and ends parts...

    I asked some of our mechanics about the Donaldson filters and they confirmed that they don't come stock, that they are add-ons for the engines, but there aren't a huge variety of them. In other words, we can't determine which filter you need from your engine model alone, it's dependent on which model air filter assembly you have.

    I did see your order, and unfortunately I can already see a couple of potential holdbacks, but I'll keep an eye out on your order for you, we don't get a lot of commercial customers from this site. If for some reason your order takes a while just shoot me an email and I'll see if I can find out which parts are holding your order up.
