<p>Thanks for kind comments re photography. I've started to get a few variations now too. I've found a K10 with a unique air filter. It has been suggested that it may be a preproduction model. any thoughts?Model on the left.</p>

Not only a difference in the airfilter, but also in the lettering used in the AVELING-BARFORD. And the steering wheel and its column looks different too.
And of course, there is the version without the air filter:

It is good to see those engineering changers that often go unnoticed like in these two refuse trucks Bob. Thanks for sharing this information.

All I see for changes is a square hole in the bottom of the box and a round hole in the other one. Besides that the arms for the tilting mechanism is different or looks that way from this side of the screen.
