Re: 639,s

The trouble with mounting the aircleaner up high is it's gotta be removed for transport and refitted.. somewhat of a hassle when working civil construation as its always jimping from job to job, the remote setup had been fitted to that machine well before the handrails and snot were fitted ;)
