    I am having a problem finding a reusable engine air filter for my 2018 International with a Cummins ISX motor. Does anyone know where I can get one?

    Why would you want to? I know a guy that ran the one that Rutherford used to advertise and he said never again. Main reason was the up front cost and mess of having to clean and re-oil the element for the reusable filter.

    I suppose you know factory filters are not supposed to be cleaned out. Blowing high pressure air through them can blow a hole in them. Then you are sucking dirt straight into the engine. On some farm trucks ( serviced annually ) we roll them while tapping on them on the floor. then blow them out with low pressure air. Those trucks run under 5,000 miles a year but we still replace them every three years max.
    Around a cement plant is different. That stuff can build up but the truck runs fine until it rains. Truck brand A did fine. Truck brand B needed filters every 8 months.
    If you are pounding the road 150,000 miles a year just replace it every year or two. Increased mileage will surely pay for it.
    Just my opinion.
