Oil Filter Recommendation Changes

Due to overlapping recommendations, the Ea15K10, EaO18 and EaO37 oil filters are discontinued. The Ea15K09 is recommended in place of the Ea15K10; the EaO17 is recommended in place of the EaO18; and the EaO34 is recommended in place of the EaO37. The online product guides have been updated to reflect these changes.

Donaldson® Price Adjustment

Donaldson has implemented a minimal price adjustment for its full product line. Effective January 1, a 2 to 3 percent price adjustment will apply to all Donaldson filters.

MANN-FILTER Price Adjustment

MANN-FILTER has implemented a minimal price adjustment for its full product line. Effective February 1, a 1.9 percent price adjustment will apply to all MANN-FILTER products.

New Freight Rates Provide Savings for Larger Orders

The following new freight rates are effective February 1. While AMSOIL has continued to see freight increases from its small-parcel carriers on the low-weight side of the scale, forcing rates up, the company has secured lower rates for larger orders. The new rate table includes a number of new weight breakdowns (under three pounds and over 1,000 pounds).
