Benefits

Free up to 0.7 cubic metres on your van
UNDERHOOD™ 70 under bonnet air compressors free up to 0.7 cubic metres in the cargo area because the air compressor mounts in the engine compartment. In fact, no components get installed in the van which ensures a clean and professional looking vehicle, and space for other equipment, tools or materials.

Reduce van GVW by up to 118 kg
UNDERHOOD™ 70 air compressors reduce vehicle GVW by as much as 118 kg. Choosing a lightweight air compressor means you’ll be able to add more tools and equipment to your van, carry more materials, or take advantage of better fuel economy.

Up to 118.9 m3/h (70 CFM). 100% of the time.
UNDERHOOD™ 70 air compressors use patented rotary screw technology designed to run at 100% duty cycle without stopping, so operators don’t have to wait for their air compressor to fill up an air receiver tank. This maximizes tool performance and eliminates downtime.

Avoid frustrating breakdowns and maintenance issues
UNDERHOOD™ 70 under bonnet air compressors are powered by the van’s engine. Because they don’t have their own engine that needs constant maintenance, less time and money is spent on fixing engine issues and more time is spent on jobs making money.

Work in any climate
UNDERHOOD™ 70 air compressors are proven to work in any extreme climate, chosen as the air compressor of choice in arctic and desert environments. The compressor is protected under the bonnet of the van, ensuring it starts in any climate every time.
