    It pays to shop around!! Air filter insanity!

    Picked up a 2010 LA 115 this weekend. 40 hours on the clock. Maintenance was neglected, however after a carb rebuild / clean it's running like a champ.

    Today I went to pick up supplies to address the rest of the machine, air filter, oil filter & fuel filter.

    I stopped first at Lowes. Keep in mind, I'm Canada and all prices are in CAN. The one on the left is the Briggs and Stratton filter, $1.99!!! I didn't photograph the tag, but trust me, the receipt says $1.99, the pre-cleaner is also included and is behind the paper filter.


    Here's the SAME Briggs and Stratton at Canadian Tire. $37.99! That's a %1900 markup!


    The oil filter, $19.99


    Picked up the FRAM equivalent at Canadian Tire for $12.

    I'm not sure if that's a pricing error at Lowes, but if so I think I might go buy a lifetime supply!

    Wow . . . I suspect a pricing error but, I'd go back and pickup a few more along with a FREE 6-pak!

    It's amazing how re-branding changes the price so much! My Jeep has a Mercedes diesel engine in it. Parts from Mercedes are a lot cheaper than the same part from Jeep!

    I bought the same style washable K&N filter for my old L108. Think is was around $30 US. Also got the small square panel one for my JD JS61 walk behind mower. Best $$ I ever spent. They were a new hybrid style that you don't have to oil after washing. I let the L108 one in when I sold the machine. Didn't fit my new 540 so I had no use for it.
