    Just wondering if anyone has any after market numbers for these. Any brands will help and then I can cross reference.

    Thanks

    I like to be able to go to the auto parts and get all my filters trucks included.

    Not to mention that we save $3 each if we use a brand like FRAM. That adds up over a season for 5 machines.

    Heres some stats for you,

    Last year in our shop we did 32 engine replacments

    15 of them were Kohler engines

    7 of the kohlers had after market filters

    4 kohlers had hydraulic filters on them.

    4 were legitimate warranty claims

    Why is it so hard to spend a couple of bucks extra to take care of your equipment? After all thats whats making you money, right?

    Your Local Napa can cross-ref for you, the napa gold filters are made by Wix. Napa will sell at case prices.

    God forbid you use the parts specifically manufactured for for your equipment. Remember you get what you pay for.

    and to answer you question, I use only genuine GM parts for my truck. 175,000 miles and I will probably get at least another 75,000. Why? because I use genuine GM parts.

    Why do you think after market parts are cheaper? Its not because they their labor is cheaper , they use inferior materials that are more likely to fail.Its like buying tools. you can get a 3/8th ratchet for 3.99 at walmart, or you can spend 60-150 for a craftsman or snap-on with a lifetime guarantee. You get what you pay for.
