You will not find another filter that removes the water and dust particles as completely as Genuine Bobcat filters:
- Greater dust and contaminate capturing capacity at 4 micron.
- Removal of 99.8% of the water from the fuel , exceeding engineering specifications
- Fuel filter water separator with a draining valve
- Improved protection for iT4/T4 engines
- Maintenance Interval: 500 hours
- K.C. Bobcat recommends having a spare fuel filter for cold weather protection.
For first time use , some machines will need a new mounting bracket to accommodate the larger filter:
Machine : Mounting Bracket

E85 : 7413760
With Tier 4 Engines , the process to remove sulfur raises the cloud point (CP) - the temperature where wax begins to drop out of fuel - which can contribute to fuel filter plugging. Because of this , it is good practice to have a spare fuel filter in cold weather.
