Diesel Driven Air Compressors

The VMAC D60 diesel driven air compressor is the best choice for customers who need the performance of a truck engine-driven air compressor, without running the truck.

Engine idle reduction is important to decrease emissions, save fuel and maintenance costs, and extend truck and equipment life. VMAC also reduces engine idling with the most intelligent control system available, automatically shutting the compressor engine off when air isn’t needed, and restarting the compressor engine when air is needed.

The D60 is available with or without a wheel kit.


Common jobs that use the compressor system:
  • Mobile heavy duty mechanics
  • Mobile tire service technicians
  • 24/7 roadside repair technicians
  • Remote job sites (when skid-mounted or with Wheel Kit Model)

Commonly used air tools:

  • 1” impact wrenches
  • 60 lb jackhammers
  • Backfill tampers
  • Vertical/horizontal grinders
  • Sanders
  • OTR tire inflation

Diesel Driven Air Compressor Benefits

60 CFM. 100% Of The time.

The VMAC D60 diesel powered air compressor includes a  patented direct-driven rotary screw air compressor designed to produce 60 CFM, 100% of the time, so operators don’t have to wait for their air compressor to fill up a bulky air receiver tank. This maximizes tool performance and eliminates downtime.

Decrease truck GVW By Up To 385 lb

Weighing just 415 lb, the D60 diesel driven air compressor is up to 385 lb lighter than comparable air compressors, because VMAC designs systems with lightweight materials and integrated components. Choosing a lightweight air compressor means you’ll be able to add more tools and equipment to your truck, carry more materials, and take advantage of better fuel economy.

Reduce Emissions & Noise

The D60 diesel air compressor’s intelligent digital control system automatically idles the Kubota engine up and down, and turns it on and off, with air demand. This auto-idling results in fewer emissions and less noise on the job site.

Save Truck Maintenance & Fuel Costs

VMAC’s powerful diesel driven air compressor reduces truck maintenance and fuel use by allowing you to turn your truck engine off while on the jobsite. This function, along with the lightweight design of the diesel driven air compressor, helps increase vehicle maintenance intervals and improve fuel economy.

Easy To Use & Service

VMAC diesel air compressors are easy to use, access, and service. The D60 can permanently integrate into the truck’s fuel system or remain self-contained, while the optional Wheel Kit Model makes it easy to move. Digital controls and LCD allow quick adjustment of system settings and provide helpful service reminders to operators.

Reliable Engine & Compressor

VMAC diesel driven air compressors work in extreme climates across North America with built-in hot/cold climate protection and an optional factory-installed cold climate kit. D60 systems are powered by Kubota, the most reliable and popular compact diesel engine on the market. Patented direct-driven rotary screw air compressors are manufactured by VMAC, and include a VMAC Lifetime Warranty (Limited).
