Cut-Off Saw Repair – Replacing the Pre-Filter (Makita Part # 195945-6)


Your cut-off saw uses a dual element air filter
system. Air first passes through the pre-filter and
then the air filter. The pre-filter removes the largest particles
of debris before they come to the main filter. The pre filter is made of foam and there’s
oil to encourage dust and dirt to stick to it. The pre-filter should be inspected each time
the saw is used. It should be washed and oiled after each eight
hours of use. When the filter starts to wear and crumble
it should be replaced. Replacing the pre-filter is repair that you
can do yourself and I’m going to show you how. Hi, I’m Mark Sodja. Do-it-yourself repairs like these are easier
