Default Pre-cleaner adaptor for Airtec Snorkel

About 5 years ago I bought a Donaldson Top Spin pre-cleaner for the snorkel on my Shorty.

When I bought my NT, it came with an Airtec snorkel that wouldn't take the Donaldson. There are more details here, but long story short, I made an adaptor to make it fit.

Update: following development of an adaptor for an FJ Cruiser I re-modelled the Pajero adaptor too.



After a recent 4wd trip to the West Coast, where the adaptor survived 7 days of travelling over a variety of tracks of varying conditions, I've concluded it worked.





Update:

This thread has grown a bit over time, so some of the more significant information has been added to this post.

Pricing for Forum Members:
$40 plus postage for the adaptor.
$140 plus postage for the Donaldson Top Spin.
Both together, $170 plus postage. That may not seem like much of a discount, but I'm not making a lot of money on these either.

Fuel Consumption:
Use of the Top Spin is recommended for off-road / dusty conditions only. As described later in this thread, the Top Spin does increase fuel consumption at highway speeds - about 1 litre/100km at 100km/h. See here for a little more information.

Noise:
The Top Spin also makes significant noise when spinning at high engine loads / speeds. This is definitely a trade-off if you're travelling with the windows down.

For a brief discussion of Top Spin vs Full View pre-cleaners, see here.

What do people think they're worth?

I reckon I'd be happy to do them for $50 - does that sound reasonable? Of course, that's for the adaptor only - not the Donaldson too.

Edit:
Pricing for Forum Members:
$40 plus postage for the adaptor.
$140 plus postage for the Donaldson Top Spin.

I don't know anything about cost of 3d printing but I'll have a think about it and look into the donaldson heads.

You might need to run that pre cleaner all the time after seeing your filter today😉

Damn those bugs were nasty - they sounded like rain hitting the windscreen.

I did a little searching for the Donaldson Top Spin I used, and discovered they aren't easy to find in Australia - so I contacted Donaldson direct.

Long story short, Hitachi are major Donaldson distributors, of the entire Donaldson range, and the Adelaide rep tells me they normally have some in stock - so I guess Hitachi in other states would also.

Additionally, they're happy to set me up as a re-seller, in which case I might be able to do slightly better than list price - if there's any interest. He wasn't 100% sure of list price, but thinks it's around the $100 mark, which is comparable with pricing I've seen for buying them out of the US - before freight.

Should I continue to chase this up?

I,d be interested. Was only looking at a K&N sock ready for next years Cape trip. I have an AIRTEK on the NW. Would prefer to buy filter and adaptor in one hit from you.
cheers

Read the bit about 3d printing....world is going crazy!!! Good stuff...

Please put me down for one - got a Simpson trip coming up next year and have seen a few stories of dust on the clean side of air filters I see a lot of outback vehicles running pre-cleaners, they seem like good insurance.

Cheers,
Stephen
