Hopefully we are going to be joined on this great site by the owner of the shiny 39 soon.He goes by the name of sandshifta and he would have moved hundreds of thousands of tons of the stuff.He will have some good photo,s and clip,s to look at.He,s like me and many other,s that love the big moon buggies.

use to play with one when I did my time, this unit was a genuine 99X prefix.. there are afew made up 639D's getting around WA which are built up from a 633D, another trick for young players is a 639D also has x2 extra paddles than a 633D (abitta useless infor for ya!)

I know it can get a bit dusty down under and the 'egg beater' whips up the dust but surely a much higher air intake stack for the rear motor would have made more sense than the drain pipe extension to the neck of the machine? :o

the air cleaner pipe is different and I would have to wonder why as the farm gear we use we can be in dust were you can hardly see past the end of the bonnet and never have any dramas with a normal air cleaner maybe that fancy air cleaner piping is for mine regs because with all those hand rails and reflective stickers the look like they maybe working in the mines

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 ;)
