Why cheap fuel filters are always expensive!

23/07/19

"What difference will it make if I fit a cheap, budget fuel filter? Surely there is not that much difference between these filers and filters from the leading brands?"

The truth is there is substantial difference and one that could end up costing you a lot of money.

Filtration quality and performance have a major influence on engine and equipment life, reliability and efficiency. A poor-quality filter compromises on all the above. Filters used on construction machinery such as excavators, dumpers and material handlers must consistently perform well. The environment in which the machines are working means the filtration systems are required to combat large volumes of dust and dirt and fuel systems particularly are placed under an enormous amount of pressure. This is due the fact dirty fuel and contaminated lubricants are often found on a construction site!

At HTS we have been supplying only OEM Specification filters since we started out in 1989. Our inhouse filtration experts have over 100 years of combined experience and their knowledge is second to none! This expertise gives you the assurance that all filters supplied by us will be the correct fitment and quality every time and that the products you purchase will provide the best possible protection for your machines at all times.

Cheap verses quality - there is really no argument. After all, how ‘cheap’ is a cheap filter if the cost of fitting it could be a whole new engine!
