We run them, no problems. Save the money! Do a search for Baldwin filters, there have been several threads of length about them.

Cut one of each open and then compare. The guys at the local NAPA did that the other day with a Fram, Motocraft, AC Delco, and a NAPA. Thats the order that they looked in quality also. I think Fram cheapened theirs up so they could sell to Wal-Mart, it looked terrible inside! The others looked pretty similar.

Local place is having a sale on them but I've never used them.  Have always used Baldwin for the last several years.

I used baldwins for the past 5 years not a problem. They are priced for me at 15-20% less (a lot more on certain ones) than deere. I can use a black marker to mark them with (kinda hard to do that with a black filter).

Panhander, test of a good filer is not so much how many filtering folds the filter has, but how much oil the releif valve allows thru unfiltered.

Wix's, Baldwin,Fleetguard, OEM, any of the above are good filters, who ever gives you the best price, I usually use Baldwin, but when I need one in a hurry I use Wix, sleep like a baby after putting either on. O and I have a white, blue,black,red ,and green marker LOL sorry just teasing, Bob

We bought all Baldwin filters instead of Deere this year, and don't regret it a bit. We probably saved about 25% even after paying the shipping to bring them across the border into Ontario. We've used Baldwin filters in our semi-trucks many times with no trouble. Had a hilarious call from the parts guy at the JD dealership after we faxed our filter order in and it was only L&G filters! He was a little disappointed that our order was about 15% of normal!

Just use your jack knife and scratch the paint on the filter. soon the scratched numbers will rust and you can read it. no marker required!

This is a link to a guy's oil filter study done in 1999and then updated in 2008. Done on car filters but the message is universal - there are big differences in filters. Fram has not made filters for decades according to this guy and other filter names change manufactures over the years. Of the 25 or so filter brands he checked, most of them were manufactured by 5 companies.

There are not that many filter makers, nobody makes 100% of their line themselves. Any filter company can make good ones, as well as poor ones. It's all about e cost. Look at NAPA, for instance, they have more than one grade of filters, same source, just different prices, and quality. Sort of like seed corn, in the respect that you can't tell what you have until it's too late. Not sure who is making JD's filter right now, or to what quality level.

I live about 20 miles from baldwin plant in Kearney, ne. I have used baldwin filters in the past and have had no problems with them and I used them on our farm for 20 yrs. I also have relatives that have worked their in the past. Baldwin makes all kinds of different filters for all different companys.

Why, John Deere of course!
You're not one of those guys who think JD might not have their own oil well, are you? LOL

Embarrass WI

Wix is good, they make NAPA's premium line.

I use JD, Fleetgard, and NAPA's gold(WIX). Never had a problem.

Heard of a guy having a problem with Donaldson brand filters a while back, company stood behind them perfectly, completely OH'd one motor and paid to have another disassembled and checked. Glue fragments came out of the filter and plugged oil passages.

Fram filters went south 20+ years ago when they were bought out by Allied Signal. Walmart has nothing to do with it.
