    I need to know if the air filter is supposed to have a inner filter in it? I went to my local small engine store to pick up a replacement filter and the salesperson ask me about the condition of my inner filter. I didn't know what he was taking about. I bought my super z last July and there was not a inner filter in the main air filter. I need to hear from you guys that run a super z. Do I need the inner filter??? Please let me know.

    I have a 03 super mini z with the Donaldson's filter. There is no inner filter on my unit.

    Do ya think a little extra filtration will help, or hurt? I've had it in mine for a year

    Hustler dealer told me and then showed me that they do not come with the inner filter. I asked why everyone else with the Donaldson style filter had both inner and outer filters but not Hustler. He didn't provide a very good explanation other than it wasn't really needed and I could always add one if I wanted to later.

    Might be worth asking on the Hustler message board to see how Pj explains it.

    Being that the air canister is further away than some other makes of ZTRs, it effects the airflow and will not properly work with the inner filter.

    The engine will not start on a 25 hp Kaw with the inner filter in it.

    If your air filter canister is designed to run 2 filters, inner and outer, you had better have both in there. The engine manufacturer could refuse to honor your engine warranty if you dust an engine, and they see you are not running with both filters.
    I know for a fact that Kubota has declined warranty repairs on engines that are missing one of the two filters.
