    Is there a trick I'm missing? Exmark 52 TTHP, just can't get a good twist grip on the filter and normal filter tools will not fit up in there....

    Might not pertain to your situation, however if a filter is too tight and the filter wrench keeps sliping, fold a piece of sand paper or emery cloth in half and place it between the surface of the wrench and filter. For filters in the open, we have been known to put a screw driver through the filter and turn.

    These both work really well:
