For the performance and service life of motorized equipment, engine filters must be clean and intact at all times. A piece of motorized machinery will generally consist of the following engine filters:
Oil filters — the engine component that keeps oil clean and pure
Transmission filters — a part of the transmission that captures excess fluid
Hydraulic filters — an engine part that balances temperatures and keeps the system sealed
Air filters — a component that protects the engine from outside dust and dirt
Coolant filters — a filter that distributes coolant and weeds out contaminants
For any given piece of motorized equipment, it’s essential to have the proper filter for the corresponding make and model of the machine in question. If a filter is ill-suited for the parts in question, it may allow improper distribution of fluids and unrestrained flow of contaminants through the system. To ensure you get the right type of filter every time, check the owner’s manual for the machine or run an online search to see which size and make of filters are suited for the parts in question.
