And best still it is fully mounted to the blower housing so will come off with it when you clean the cooling fins.
So many "professional" instqllqtions done at mower shops make it next to impossible to remove the housing, so owners don't bother.
Sort of self defeating.
Air ends up being cleaner but engine overheats from debris build up under the cover.

I have been fitting them to the ROPS where I can .

FWIW: I spelled Kawasaki incorrect on the title. Fat fingers & small keys....Doh !!! :rolleyes:

Thank You Bert- Appreciate your input. Yes I mounted it to easily come off intact with the blower housing for annual engine cleanings. I made sure of that. Cause I do keep my engine clean.


The Donaldson canister I got off eBay used, & low price. It cleaned up pretty good (imo). And of course the filters are brand new. As are my spark plugs to get a good 'read' on the burn..

Depending upon which housing you bought, all of the after market mower parts companies do replacement elements
I use both Stens & Rotary and have found them both to be very good.
My commercial customers re getting 2 to 3 years out of the outers and the only inner I replaced was one that got water damaged.

Bert- The housing was off an FX691, which takes the big 10-3/4" long outer filter, Donaldson # P821575

At only approx 25 hours per mow season, I 'should' be good for a few seasons. I put in Kaw factory filters.

Thanks for the recommendation on aftermarket ones. :thumbsup:

Do you have a part number for the filter minder, and/or the specs for this application?

Filter Minder is 136501-00408 series. Reads up to 8" H2O @ max.

What other specs are you referring to ?
