Three Reasons Why Everyone Should Check Their Air Filter Now

Many homeowners forget a very important step to prolong your lawn equipment’s engine life. Changing your engine’s air filter regularly will help prevent debris and dirt from getting into the carburetor and engine. This causes damage that can lead to costly repairs.

Regularly replacing your air filter also helps insure proper air movement to aid in combustion. This will help keep your engine running smoothly. A stopped up filter could impede the performance of your engine, like trying to run breathing through a straw.

It’s recommended that you clean the pre-filter, if equipped, every 25 hours of use or after 3 months. Further, you should replace pleated paper air filters after 300 hours of use.

Before you attempt to replace your air filter, disconnect the spark plug to prevent accidental start-up while you are servicing your unit. Remember to read your owner’s manual and follow the manufacturer’s recommendations and safety precautions during all maintenance procedures.
