Question: Air Filter

Skirsch

Does this cover come with the actual air filter?
WJA
Hello Skirsch,

The part number for the air filter is 518766001 Air Filter Base. The mesh material you see on it acts as the filter. It's not the best filter I have seen, but they have been using this style of filter for years.

Question: Airfilter

cmg

does the airfilter just snap in?
UtahAV
Hi cmg,

The air filter base is held to the tool using the same screws that hold the carb to the engine. Tools that use this base don't have a filter. Ryobi considers the piece of window screen over the air intake opening to be the filter. Not the best design in my opinion...

I ordered a foam filter for mine because the factory screen is not suitable to keep the dust out. The filter from the link below comes with the part in the picture and also the middle section which fits the model RY28040 perfectely.

link removed
Ebay seller 'mowers4u' has a foam filter that fits perfect in the Model RY28040. It comes with two pieces, use the inner piece.
