If your filter lasts forever, it means it's not filtering! Contaminants are the enemy of your equipment’s internal systems. Poor filtration can allow contaminants to enter your internal systems causing vital parts failure and expensive repairs. Protect your investment with Bobcat quality filters that are specifically designed to provide the most sophisticated protection.

Bobcat Oil Filters

N/A

Today’s higher performance diesel engines thrive on Bobcat lube filters for cleaner oil and longer engine life. Bobcat filters are specifically designed for Bobcat equipment. Let’s compare the difference between genuine Bobcat filters and “Maybe OK” aftermarket filters.

Original Genuine Bobcat Oil Filters
Durable, thicker metal filter housing to prevent failure under pressure.
Treated media traps larger dirt particles and other contaminants on the surface while smaller particles are embedded in the underlying layer.
Filter media is uniformly pleated and up to 40% thicker.
Filter media is securely sealed into metal end-caps with plastisol.
Heavy-duty coil spring to maintain the media cartridge seal under pressure.
Louvered inner liner allows maximum oil flow to the engine.

"Maybe OK" Aftermarket Oil Filters
Filter housing is significantly thinner.
Media are thin and inconsistently cured.

Use less effective and less stable sealants like glue.
Weak coil or lever springs that may collapse and let unfiltered oil pass through to the engine’s moving parts.
Inferior filter cartridge design may limit oil outflow.

Protect your equipment investment and reduce costly downtime by simply choosing original Bobcat filters every time. It’s an advantage your engine needs!

Bobcat Air Filters

N/A

While it only takes a few grams of dust invading your engine to cause serious damage, you can rely on Bobcat original air filters to protect your equipment. Bobcat replacement filters and filter gaskets are precision engineered to meet your machine’s original specifications with a perfect fit. Replacement engine air filters often look the same on the outside… until you go beneath the surface.

  • Cellulose media is resin-treated and corrugated to maximum depth for a greatly increased air filtering surface and precise channels for better airflow.
  • Evenly-spaced pleats and radial seal design for optimum contaminant-holding capacity.
  • Closed-end urethane design prevents the possibility of moisture-related rusting throughout the life of the air filter.
  • Bobcat air filters have been tested in temperatures of -40° to 180° C without failure or leaking, as well as tested for thousands of hours in on- and off-highway applications with flawless performance.
  • Easy to install. Allows hassle-free service to get vehicles back into operation quickly.
  • Let’s compare the difference between genuine Bobcat filters and "Maybe OK" aftermarket filters.


Original Genuine Bobcat Air Filters
The proprietary filter media is durable and consistent.
Pleated media is firmly embedded into urethane end caps to form a tight seal.
The pleated arrangement is reinforced with adhesive rings, and held in place by a sturdy metal mesh liner.

"Maybe OK" Aftermarket Air Filters
Inconsistent, inferior media can put your valuable engine at risk.
Some manufacturers approximate filter dimensions, and the inaccuracy can make for difficult installation and a poor seal.
Dust leaks can also occur when media is not fully embedded in the end caps.
Use thinner mesh liners, which are weak and prone to damage in handling.

Bobcat Fuel Filters

N/A

Today’s higher performance/lower emission diesel engines thrive on Bobcat original fuel filters for cleaner fuel and water separation. The treated media traps harmful particles and provides effective water separation via the Twist ‘n Drain valve. Let’s compare the difference between genuine Bobcat filters and "Maybe OK" aftermarket filters.

Original Genuine Bobcat Fuel Filters
Durable, thicker metal filter housing to prevent failure under pressure.
Treated media traps larger dirt particles and other contaminants on the surface while smaller particles are embedded in the underlying layer.
Filter media is uniformly pleated and up to 40% thicker than competitive brands.
Filter media is securely sealed into metal end-caps with plastisol.
Heavy-duty coil spring to maintain the media cartridge seal under pressure.
Louvered inner liner allows maximum fuel flow to the engine.

"Maybe OK" Aftermarket Fuel Filters
Filter housing is significantly thinner.
Media are thin and inconsistently cured.
Use less effective and less stable sealants like glue.
Weak coil or lever springs that may collapse and let unfiltered fuel pass through to the injectors.
Inferior filter cartridge design may limit fuel outflow.

Bobcat Hydraulic Filters

N/A

In the dust and dirt, it takes superior hydraulic fluid filtration to keep your Bobcat digging, lifting and pushing through. Bobcat offers the highest-rated hydraulic filters available in a spin-on configuration.

  • Pleated media to maximize contaminant holding capacity for a longer filter life
  • Spin-on design reduces contamination risk and is easy to service
  • Spiral centre tube provides greater flow area with higher collapse strength
  • Heavy-duty metal housing for superior durability and protection
  • Hot-melt spacing and wire backing for optimum use even during cold start-up and flow
  • Synthetic filter media helps extend service life by protecting your machine from contaminates.

Let’s compare the difference between genuine Bobcat filters and "Maybe OK" aftermarket filters.

Original Genuine Bobcat Hydraulic Filters
High-performance synthetic media has a lower pressure drop that protects your machine’s hydraulic components, even when the hydraulic fluid is cold.
Consist of pores that remain unobstructed longer with more surface area for trapping and retaining smaller particles, increasing filter life up to 2 to 3 times that of traditional media.

"Maybe OK" Aftermarket Hydraulic Filters
With traditional cellulose media, fibres are less consistent in size and shape, leading to harmful pressure drops from greater restriction and lower contaminant holding capacity.
Lower quality synthetic media often relies on resin which can introduce contamination, cause filming and restrict flow.

Inside the Bobcat Oil Filter

Filters often look plain on the outside, until you go beneath the surface. Let’s understand what the Bobcat filter is doing on the inside. Contaminants are the enemy of your equipment’s internal systems. Poor filtration can allow contaminants to enter your internal systems causing vital parts failure and expensive repairs. Protect your investment in Bobcat equipment with Bobcat quality filters specifically designed to provide the most sophisticated protection.
Filter components from left to right:
•    Canister: thick, heavy-duty, coated shell prevents filter from collapsing under pressure or fatigue
•    Spring: presses the filter snugly into the end cap
•    Media: fibres in the media act as a mesh screen to block particles, while at the same time allowing the oil to pass through easily
•    End Cap: uses plastisol sealant to hold the media deeply embedded in the end caps
•    Anti-Drain Back Seal: wide, one-piece seal prevents leaks and dirty oil draining back into pan
•    Base Plate: seams are fully tucked and attach the base plate to the canister for strength and durability
•    Inlet Hole: greater number and large inlet holes broaden the oil flow into the filter
•    Base Gasket: smooth and flexible to maintain a tight seal
