Buy hydro filter from the factory. I have purchased aftermarket replacement filters in the past and they did not appear the same internally so I threw them away and bought the factory ones.
Its not worth damaging the system for a filter which is only replaced once a year.
Want to give Exmark a real good reason to void you hydro warranty???? Alot of engine oil filters will screw on the filter base but, you need a suction type filter not a pressure filter. Exmark uses a 10 micron filter rating. The hydro filter change is a once annually change. What are you going to save made $10-$12, not worth risking.
Don't want to bust any bubbles,but an hydro filter of 10 micron is an hydro filter of 10 micron..In other words,a factory filter isn't any better..However,you must use an hydro filter,not an oil filter..
From what I understand 10 microns can have different flow rates & surface areas so one 10 micron filter may not be as good as another. The paper area & cylinder holes on some of the aftermarkets I got that were not oil filters were different than eXmark OEM.
Hey I got a question why are we using mobile 1 synthetic "oil" in out Hydro system and then worry about a hydro filter as opposed to a oil filter if the filter is rated at 10 microns what in tarnation is the difference?
