My 2188 has the change over cab air filtration system that is behind the right hand bin door. (dirtiest place to have a filter,IMO). As most of you know, this filter gets coated in a VERY short time! My filter is shot and I need to replace it BUT cringe at the thought of spending big bucks with mother Case to only have it plug in a few hours. What I would like to find is a used outer air filter that has been discarded from something that would fit this application (I'm CHEAP!)
Anybody know of a filter that is the same one? I'll need the make and model of equiptment that it comes off of so I can look through the neighbors or dealers "throw away" pile.
I've been directed to the "Baldwin" web site but can't find it there. Also a "Wix" site but nothing there either.
Part number is 247752R1
Can anyone help me?
Thanks

Just buy a new one buy the time you get done screwing around and find one that's half ways close you could just get a new one and blow it out once a day.

Maybe you already know this, but the air coming in through the outside filter is mainly to pressurise the cab so when that filter gets plugged you may notice a little more dust in the cab. The air for the heater/ac is recirculated through the foam filter behind the seat. I have gotten numerous calls about the a/c not working very well and often the problem is the foam needs cleaned out or someone has put a jacket back there and blocked off the air flow. In other words, it is not critical that the outside filter be kept super clean.

Mine doesn't get that dusty inside as it seems like my cab is very tight (maybe I'm luckey) I've been cleaning my filter every other day but upon close inspection, I see mine has a bad spot in it so will either have to bite the bullet and buy new or maybe some one thats not as cheap as me will send me the one they are going to throw away. I'll pay for shipping if anyone would be intrested. PM me for address.
Never heard of a "snorkle" that would be adapted to this. Did see a used combine that the previous owner rigged up a small Donalson canister with a plastic catch bowl on top. Stuck it on the corner of the bin. I thought it looked like @#$% but I bet it was functional. Just don't want to "trash" the looks of my combine!............toooooooooo particular I guess.

I don't think I have ever run into anyone that cheep. How do you put fuel in it? If you can get by that way I admire your ability.

I have not heard of any snorkel available through Case or aftermarket. I did convert several machines over and mounted the cab filter in the engine compartment. We used exhaust tubing and ran it through the grain tank. These were on the 2100 series that had a mod program to relocate the air filter from the left side of the cab wall over to the current location on the right hand side.
You also need to check the flex hose from the filter body to cab and make sure they don't have cracks or real small holes in the hose. We have seen some of that.

Yes striker is right, that right hand filter is just to pressurize the cab, it flows less air than you think. Don't worry about it being dirty. Maybe blow it out a couple times a year and you will be fine.

Also check your seal on your right hand rotor inspection door. Make sure the latches are good, or add more to make twice as many latches. Could also add foam strips to really seal it up.

95% of the super-bad pressurizer filter problems are because this panel is loose/does't fit right/isn't sealed up.

And no offense but if you're that picky about your machine what's the problem of just buying the correct new OEM filter?

You should check your door seals. They are probably leaking and causing you to draw allot of air in to pressurize the cab. Also check the inside filter behind the seat so that you are getting good air recirculation. A new 88 with good seals will not clog this filter very fast even in extreme dust. A tight combine will ping your eardrums when the door is slammed closed.

I am as cheap as anyone but as my wife often reminds me you can go to far and be "stupid cheap".

I sure notice when it is plugged, it gets very "dusty" in the cab. I like to keep it clean, as I have one son with asthma problems. Didnt Case/IH come up with an addition, that kind of looks like a snorkle, where "fresh air" is pulled from up top somewhere?
