Why You Should Use OEM Replacement Kubota Filters in Your Tractor
Using OEM replacement Kubota filters can guarantee that your Kubota tractor remains in good working order and gives you years of effective service. Kubota tractors are some of the most popular agricultural equipment in the world, known not only for their high maneuverability, as they were designed to work on smaller Japanese farms, in addition to their high performance.
Since farmers have come to rely on their Kubota tractors to ensure their harvests, they need their machines to always be working at their peak, and reliable OEM replacement filters can ensure this. Tests have shown that these parts have a high filtration efficiency rate just like the original, and some may even work more efficiently over time. This is particularly true for OEM replacement parts designed with the filtration area bonded to a metal cap to ensure their durability. Cheaper filters are bonded to cardboard, which makes them more prone to damage.
In addition, a reliable filter contains a tube holder to strengthen the center tube and protect the paper filter and prevent oil flow from stopping. Plus, the gasket in products have volume change that is less than those of cheaper alternatives; high volume change can lead to oil leakage during periods of harsh service.
There are two types of Kubota filters. In addition, Kubota also provides users with the option to create their own filter by providing them with a list of the appropriate parts.
Engine oil filters are designed to remove harmful contaminants from oil during both normal and more strenuous periods of service. This type of filter features an internal filter element that uses steel caps to increase the strength of the media.
The physical filter uses synthetic fibers to improve the efficiency of the filtration process, and which also provide resistance to the hot oil to make it last longer. And the compound used to seal the gasket is specially designed to withstand high temperature and severe service while helping to reduce oil leakage.
The other type of filter is hydraulic filters that are designed to work with hydraulic systems to protect sensitive hydrostatic transmission and valving elements. Its features include a specially-designed inlet design to reduce the loss of pressure and help hydrostatic transmission and performance as well as a one-piece deep-drawn steel shell to help the filter resist wear and tear while providing high-burst strength. The physical filter itself is made of a low restriction, high efficiency media to enable high flow operation. And to reduce oil leakage, a sealing gasket compound is used that resists high temperatures and severe usage.
One important thing to consider when buying OEM replacement filters for your tractor is that you need to get the filter that fits your particular tractor model. You can get the exact part number from the operator’s manual. You can also use the quick parts look up on the Kubota site if you don’t have your reference manual handy.
It should also be noted that even with good OEM replacement Kubota filters, you still need to change your oil regularly in order to ensure that your Kubota tractor is performing at maximum efficiency. Generally, it is recommended that the oil be changed for every 75 to 100 hours of use, although you may have to shorten the frequency if you use your tractor heavily.
When you’re changing your oil, you should not be alarmed if it looks particularly black since diesel fuel tends to naturally blacken engine oil. It is also natural for you to find little metal shavings and chips in the oil as well as other contaminants such as water, coolant and rust. Write the date and time of your last oil change on the side of your filter so you’ll know when you need to change it again.
