I found them reasonable at less than $8 per oem oil filter. If I remember right, I ordered 3 oil filters, a fuel filter , air filter ,gasket rings for oil pan plug, oh and almost forgot the notorious penion seal that I couldn't find anywhere else, and steering wheel badge .With shipping it was less than $84. Since I ordered multiple items the shipping was reasonable. This was last summer. It's a post on here about it somewhere.
However when I had just bought my machine, I ordered an oil filter from a dealer in Hattiesburg which is an hour from me and it was over $20 for a single oil filter with shipping.
They seem to be extremely reasonable and responsive. I've ordered filters, oil plug washers...no issues at all and fast.

I have decided to start oil change intervals every 2,500 miles since 95% of my driving is around town. Mostly short trips and mostly at 45-55 mph.

Every 50 hours it seems like I'm changing oil every six weeks or so.

I'm going every 5000 kilometers/3000 miles. I run most of my trucks double (or more with synthetic) what the recommended interval is. Been doing that for 30 years, I have yet to have a motor blow up on me. My 2004 Ford F150 has a helluva tick/knock, but that's just Ford 5.4 thing 280,000 kilometres on it, I just turn up the stereo and drive it till it goes boom. "If it ain't ticking, it ain't running".

What's going on with the oil filter shortage? Covid? 😉

No probably MAHINDRA’s failure to follow up on customer support. I’ve been waiting for over three months for parts.
You would think now they can’t say all there resources are going towards new units, bullshit where are my parts. New buyers beware.

Just called my dealer. They have the oil filter. Only $19.47. Talk about gouging. No thanks I’ll wait.

No kidding. Tell them the MSRP IS $7 and see what they say. I’d call them out on it.

at this point I consider it a premium to have an oem filter vs a will fit but unknown if it meets or exceeds oem specs. I still have one on the shelf so I’m not hurting and in dire need to spend 3 times the msrp on one. Like I said i can wait.

I always have a couple extra also. Also a spare air and fuel.

I have an extra fuel filter and air filter also. I bought several oil filters from Sherwood last year. I have the synthetic oil sitting on my shelf. - also the gear oil. I think I'm good for a year or more. Sure hope so. This Roxer is handling better and better at 1800 miles .( All farm driven )

It's like the great toilet paper shortage. Sure, you have plenty in the house but you know it won't last forever. So, every time you see some you buy it, because you just don't know how long there'll be a shortage. Yeah, I have a filter on the shelf but now that I can't buy one I WANT ONE!😁

I have plenty of TP. Trade ya pack of mega rolls for an oil filter.
