Pay close attention, as this tip on cleaning a lawnmower air filter can save you time and money—and keep you lawnmower running for many years. Thankfully, this one-step process is easy to remember and difficulty is low.
When your paper air filter gets dirty, buy a new one. It’s that simple.
Using compressed air will cause tears in the filter making it easy for dust to bypass the filter when reinstalled. It defeats the filter’s purpose and quickly loads up the engine with dirt and will require costly repairs.
Paper air filters are cheap. So keep a backup on hand and never be tempted to take a shortcut with a blower.
