With the new to me machines filters are getting out of hand. One machine has close to ten filters! Is there a good online source for filters. I would like to buy a years supply at once at a good price.

Thanks!

I have started buying all my parts that I can at a local small time parts store. Go to one of the major chains like Advance or O'Reilly's and it's a different person everytime that is new and just there for a short time. Don't even know where to find anything that on the store shelve.

Place I go to now has had the same employees for years, seem to have better quality parts and are fairly competitive on price. If you need a certain size O-Ring they have an assortment and will sell you only the size you need with out having to buy a pack with a bunch you don't need. If they don't have it in there parts bin but do have it in a big assortment they will open the big assortment and sell you only what you need and put the rest in stock for single sales.

Bring them a part number from about any manufacture, even lawnmowers, and they will hunt it down for you. Never hear "we don't have that". It's always "sort of an odd ball but let me see if I can get it for you".  They are somewhat connected to a larger company and will bend over backwards to get it for you. Go in and need a special order part. They order and when you ask if you need to pay up front it's always "you can or just pay when you pick it up". To me as long as they are close on the price of part's I will go with good service and pay just a tad more.
Give me a new saw chain and I can find you a rock in a heartbeat.

  I work at an automotive dealer and our filters are normally the same price if not cheaper than a decent quality aftermarket filter...  That being said, I bought all Kubota filters (1 years worth) a couple months after I got my, new to me, machine.  Kubota is VERY proud of their hydro. filters, those will be coming from NAPA (Wix or the Gold line) next time (during their yearly sale of coarse!).

I try to find my filters on Amazon or Ebay and buy a box of them.  When you do the math and break it down per filter cost it's quite a nice surprise.

I try to keep a couple spare sets of filters on hand. One time I needed a fuel filter and didn't have one so I went to the local Napa store. New filter was $12. New one from New Holland is $4. I now get all my filters from my New Holland dealer.

I beleive in using oem filters only. In a pinch i throw a napa filter on a machine in a emergency,  but i find they cost more than the oem filters anyways. I try to find oem filters on ebay and amazon.
