I know for my entire career (31 years) the mechanics have always taken a beating trying to keep the equipment on the streets. Rsqfxr, i can assume you may be a mechanic and I want to thank you for your hard word and dedication. It is the gold badges as well as the bean counters who try to do more with less.

@RsqfxrWaiting to see if any additional changes need to be made before production of the remaining order?  How many in total were ordered?

Maneuverability is tops. With new housing developments being built with smaller streets, it's extremely difficult to get a huge rear mount tower in there. Especially with cars parked on the street. Not to mention driving through heavy city traffic. Tillers here in AZ. haven't caught on with the exception of Buckeye,  and they definitely need it for the community of Verrado, which has very narrow streets. Most depts. probably prefer a tower for safety reasons,  but a tiller will get you into tight spots.

Looks like the went with a new lightbar on this one 

Nope, same light bar (Whelen Freedom Ultra Super LED FL2RRR 72 lightbar.)  Nothing has changed on the remaining 24 from the initial one.  I think its just the angle of the photo of these two that makes it look slightly different.
