The Most Intelligent Mobile Air Compressor Available.

Diesel Driven Air Compressors


The VMAC 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. Another way VMAC reduces engine idling is with the most intelligent control system available, automatically shutting the compressor engines off when air isn’t needed, and restarting the compressor engine when air is needed.

Applications – Common jobs that use the compressor system:

  • Mobile heavy duty mechanics
  • Mobile tire service technicians
  • 24/7 roadside repair technicians
  • Remote jobsites (when skid-mounted)

Commonly used tools:

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


Save truck maintenance and fuel costs.

VMAC diesel driven air compressors reduce truck maintenance and fuel use by allowing you to turn your truck engine off while on the jobsite.  The control system not only automatically idles the compressor’s engine up/down with air demand, it also turns the engine off/on with air demand.  This function, along with the lightweight design of the diesel driven air compressor helps improves fuel economy while driving and on the jobsite.

Easy to use and service.

VMAC diesel driven air compressors are easy to use, access and service.  Systems can be integrated into the truck or can remain self-contained so they can be easily transferred from truck to truck.  Digital controls and LCD allow easy adjustment of system settings and provide service reminders to operators.

Reliable engine and compressor.

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