Kubota Hydraulic Filters

Kubota hydraulic filters are designed to remove harmful contaminants from hydraulic systems to protect sensitive valving and hydrostatic transmission components.
 
Features of Kubota's hydraulic filters include:
 
  • Special oil inlet configuration to reduce pressure loss and assist HST function and performance
  • Deep drawn one piece steel shell for high burst strength and fatigue resistance.
  • Sealing gasket compound for severe service and high temperature operation, reduces oil leakage due to hardening.
  • High efficiency, low restriction filtration media for high flow operation.
Kubota Genuine Filters vs. Aftermarket:
 
The center tube of the Kubota Genuine filter contians a tube holder to maintain strength. In constrast, an "after market" filter does not contain a tube holder. Lack of strenght under Kubota's specification can lead to either:
 
  1. Complete stop of the oil flow and cause cabitation or
  2. The filter paper inside can get damaged which will not allow the oil to pass through the filtration.
 
So, Why Kubota?

Strength! Test results show that the differential pressure strength of a Kubota genuine filter is better than that of an "after market" competitor over a specified test period (see chart).
 
 
The Gasket! Test results show that the volume change of the gasket of a Kubota genuine filter is less than that of an "after market" competitor over a specified test period (see chart).
 
High volume change can lead to oil leakage during severe service and high temperature operations.
