Design & Handling
With its portable design and approximate dimensions of D13.8 x W15.3 x H35.5 in, the AR Blue Clean AR390SS makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the AR390SS convenience of transport.
The unit can be very easily carried around, as it weighs just 31.1 lbs. It is lightweight, partly thanks to its plastic frame. On top of its light weight, the transportability and easy of use of this model is further improved by the addition of two wheels.
