Air Filters, Oil Filters & Fuel Filters for Your Tractor
As with any other working vehicle part, an engine air filter needs changing over time to keep the engine running at peak performance. For working tractors this is particularity important as your driving environment is engulfed in debris and particles. If you own a show tractor you will still need to check the filter at regular intervals as over time air filters can become brittle.
Air filters are designed to prevent debris from entering the engine's cylinders, where it would cause mechanical wear to your tractor and oil contamination. Without an air filter in place, the engine may also be sucking dirt and debris in at the same time. This can cause damage to internal engine parts, such as valves, pistons and cylinder walls. An engine combines air and fuel in the combustion chamber to create power. The air filter must allow enough air to reach the engine so it can perform effectively. Air filters are usually made of fibrous or porous material. Over time, the air filter can become dirty and clogged, and the lack of air can affect the engines power where it is having to work harder to draw in air.
