Mine neither, but I do use Napa (Wix) oil filters, never had a problem.No aftermarket hydraulic filters available for my Kioti....
Dealer's more of a hassle for me, close to an hour's drive vs 10 min to Napa. I don't think the dealer's gonna deliver a filter 40-odd miles for free.Genuine Kubota or Kioti or JD or whatever filters are only a few pennies more in most instances. Not worth the hassle for me. Besides, my dealer delivers my parts to the farm. I don't even have to go get them.
Yeah, the manufacturers want you to think their filters are somehow special and superior to aftermarket ones, but the name brand ones are perfectly good, certainly nothing I'm gonna obsess over.
