Servicing a forklift air filter by restriction is the best way to get the most life out of your filter. Proper servicing can save you money and time. Dirty filters do not always mean they are trash. Many times, dirty filters can  go more hours!

Don’t want to cause a problem in your air cleaner? Don’t service it too much. The elements in the filters are more efficient as dust builds up on the media. But  avoid dust and other abrasive particles when removing the filter!

There are a variety of choices when it comes to measurement tools to get the most out of your filter.
