Types of Lawn Mower Air Filters
Air filters come in all shapes and sizes, but they fall into two general categories:
- Disposable Paper Air Filter: These filters use an folded accordion of special paper to catch particles. Sometimes disposable air filters can be cleaned using compressed air, but they’re designed to be thrown away rather than cleaned and reused.
- Reusable Foam Air Filter: Foam filters can be washed and reused. They are usually lightly oiled before reuse to keep contaminants from passing through the foam.
