How to Change the Air Filter on a Husqvarna RZ Zero Turn
Does your zero turn’s engine seem to be lacking power lately?
It could be the air filter! It is very important for the health and longevity of your machine to clean/replace its air filter frequently!
What You Will Need:
- Husqvarna Zero Turn Mower
- New Air filter (if replacing)
Clean the area around the air filter to prevent debris from getting into the engine when you remove the filter.
Open the Air filter cover by unlatching the clamp.
Remove the filter and look at it to see if it is damaged, bent, or dirty. If it is not bent or damaged, or too terribly dirty, you may be able to re-use it.
If you can re-use the filter, gently tap it against a solid surface to remove the dust. Be sure to handle the air filter with care. If the ceiling surfaces become damaged or bent, do not re-use it!
If you were not able to use your old filter, simply put a new one in its place.
Check to be sure that the air filter is in the housing properly before closing the cover.
You’re all done! This is a quick and easy way to improve your mower’s performance!
