Racers make headlines at K&N Engineering and so do everyday people. Tom Baxter from Temple, Georgia is a retired firefighter who is a Corvette enthusiast. He likes to give VIP tours at the Corvette Museum and tell people about the additional horsepower then can gain on Corvettes with K&N air filters.

Baxter began using K&N air filters on his 1985 Camaro and never looked back. From that point on he put a K&N air filter on everything he could, including his lawn tractor and a generator.

It started with his ten acres of lawn that needed mowing. “I put a K&N air filter on my 26 horsepower Kohler Motor lawn tractor,” he said. “It is a perfect fit. A paper filter would clog up before I was done mowing my ten acres. When I found out K&N had air filters available for lawn tractors it saved me a lot of money. When my K&N air filter gets dirty I clean it just like the instructions tell me, and re-oil it. I know I’ve saved well over $100.00 by not using paper filters over the past two years. I also know I’m getting the best protection available for my tractor.”

Baxter is way out in the country. He has to get to his property via a two lane black top road. “The power goes out a lot where I live,” he said. “It seems as if we’re the first to lose it and the last to get it back. I bought a 15 thousand watt generator to kick in when the power goes out and put a K&N air filter on it. K&N works, K&N pioneered the concept of low restriction and K&N delivers what it promises. I wouldn’t use anything else.”

To find K&N products for your tractor, small engine, or any vehicle use the K&N Product Search.  When searching for small engine air filters it is best to select "ALL OR UNKNOWN YEAR" then look for the equipment or engine by manufacturer, model, and engine size.  If you don't find a listing you can also try the K&N Search by Dimension web page to see if we make a filter the size you need.  Once you have found the filter you want use the K&N Dealer Search to find a K&N dealer near you.
