835 Test Kit

The 835 (5 Valve) is the same kit as the 845-5 gauge but is adapted with fittings to mount it in a hard sided carrying case which is like the 830 case.  The gauge is designed with a quick release to remove it from the case to use in tight places and for greater convenience.  This is a good gauge to transition from an 830 to the 845.  It provides the familiarity of the 830 with the case and the convenience of the hand held 845 gauge.
