I believe that you have to just replace them because it is a paper filter. Hopefully someone else will chime in here too

They are not technically a reusable cleanable filter. However every now and then i take it off and blow it out with an air compressor. Blow from the inside otherwise you just drive the dust deeper into the filter.

Never use compressed air on any air filter it ruins the microscopic webbing of the filter


Just replace that filter with a brand new one.

Absolutely right on both counts

Never use air. Don't try to clean a paper filter. They are disposable.

If you don't blast the air straight on it it wouldn't be much different than the engine.

Except the engine is creating a vacum from outside to the inside of the filter and it is certainly not 90, 120, 100 psi as with you air compressor output

Thats why i hold it back a ways. Don't get me wrong, im not sayin this is the way you should always do it, but if youve got alot of bigger stuff on it, you can blow that off pretty easy.

If your carefull you can use an air bomb to clean them. We use it on all of our equipment and have never had any trouble with it.
