    We used some Sonax Multistar to lift any extra dirt just as a precaution before ONR was used.

    love it, have had it for a couple months now and it going to be a hot one for 2014. if you take it seriously I would say this will replace your 3 inch griots.

    Awesome job Phil and Crew. Now the question of the day is when are you going to be selling the single units ? P.S. I still am unable to like any posts since the upgrade.

    is the rupes 75e as powerful as the 75 lhr?

    strange I will have to take a look at this, so you can't post a new thread?

    since the power of the lhr75 is via air its power only last as long as your air supply.

    the mini for me is a better unit.

    yes individual ones will be coming soon, we are still awaiting to hear pricing.
