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
- OTR tire inflation
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 an air receiver tank. This maximizes tool performance and eliminates downtime.
Decrease truck GVW by up to 350 lbs.
Weighing just 450 lbs, the VMAC D60 diesel driven air compressor is up to 350 lbs lighter than comparable air compressors. This is 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, or take advantage of better fuel economy.
Reduce truck idling.
What makes the VMAC D60 diesel air compressor so intelligent is the digital control system. The control system automatically idles the Kubota diesel engine up and down and turns it on and off with air demand. This means fewer emissions and less noise on the job site. And since the truck engine can remain off while using the air compressor, fleet managers can save on truck maintenance and fuel costs. Another important benefit of the advanced control system is built-in cold and hot climate protection, keeping the D60 running in most extreme climates.
Save truck maintenance and fuel costs.
VMAC’s powerful 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 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.
