    Gonna throw one on my cummins isx. Who has experience with them. Which one do you like? I'm leaning towards the spinner. Just because theyve been around forever

    Don't know much about the other two, but I ran the spinner before I retired. It works good, easy to service. When you do service it you can see the "shoe polish like paste" that it extracts from the oil. The longer between the service interval the more paste.

    They make a cool spinning centrifugal sound when you shut the engine down. If you go to long before you service it, then the paste builds up to the point it will stop spinning and you will no longer hear it spinning when you shut the engine down.

    If I was still trucking I would buy another one in a heart beat.

    I like the amsoil for the simplicity of the design. I dislike the eco pur because the company uses misleading marketing tactics to try to convince you their much higher priced product is far superior, when in fact they all do the same thing.

    I have spinner on an n14.
    Easy to clean. It is surprising the amount of solids it removes.
    I have no experience with the other brands.
    Good luck.

    Got a spinner 560 on my ISX now and had one a 60 series the thing is low or no cost for paper liners after the install. Clean mine once a year on the ISX and it just has a little film in it. The 60 series cleaned after every oil change at 20K it would have 1/2 inch of hard packed soot. Can only say it the only one I will put on my truck.

    I have spinners on the trucks. I won't get anything else. As mentioned, easy to service,

    I just bought the ops pur. Seems to me like they all do the same thing. They all seem reliable. So eh.

    Now not being mechanically inclined at all, I wonder if I can install it myself or if I'll have to take it somewhere
