Default Maytag 72 air filter

Need air filter for Maytag 72. This is on a lawnmower and pretty sure Maytag didn't make the filter but the mower manufacturer did. I have saw filter similar to it on generator and other uses. Couple years ago I did find one but seller wanted more for it than what engine is worth. I still don't have a filter and he may still have his filter and I still won't pay what the whole running is worth for a filter.

Hard item to find, as Maytag didn't produce it. Good luck finding one, and unfortunately, it won't be cheap! You might check with Mark Shulaw or Tom S here on the stak, VIA a P.M., they might have a source.

Yes I'm sure it had one. I had the mower a long time ago, maybe 20 years, sometime later I sold it. Then again I bought it back and the filter had been replaced with a regular air valve. He didn't remember what he did with it. That filter is so heave it wouldn't stay in position, it would lay down. I can't remember what it did but it interfered with something. Anyway he didn't like it and replaced. He may have threw it away.
