Gas Powered Air Compressor/Generators

Overview

The VMAC G30 air compressor/generator combines two convenient forms of power into a single, innovative system. Operators with a G30 air compressor/generator on their service truck can quickly switch between air and AC power for their tools and equipment.

Applications – Common jobs that use the compressor:

  • Light/medium duty mobile mechanics
  • Mobile tire service technicians
  • Light duty contractors

Commonly used tools & equipment:

  • Air Tools
    • ¾” impact wrenches (up to 1” with a small receiver tank)
    • Backfill tampers
    • Chipping hammers
    • Die grinders
    • 2” horizontal grinders
    • Tire inflation
  • Electric Equipment
    • Power tools
    • Night work lights
    • Battery chargers
    • Personal electronics

Benefits

25 CFM CONTINUOUS AIR POWER

VMAC’s G30 air compressor/generator includes a patented 25 CFM rotary screw air compressor designed to maintain max CFM 100% of the time, so operators don’t have to wait for their air compressor to fill up a large air receiver tank. This maximizes air tool performance while providing maximum operator efficiency at the job site and eliminating downtime.

3600 W CONTINUOUS AC GENERATOR

The G30 air compressor/generator is engineered and manufactured for mobile power. The 3600 W continuous AC output generator includes a 120V circuit with a GFCI duplex receptacle and a 240V circuit with a L14-20 twist lock. Operators will be able to power their electric tools, lighting, and other equipment wherever needed.

TURNKEY SYSTEM WITH EASY INSTALLATION

The G30 air compressor/generator is easy to install and ready for same-day use. The system includes all the necessary accessories, including a battery, electric starter, and lifting hook; simply add fuel and get straight to work.

TWO OPERATING MODES

VMAC’s air compressor/generator features a high idle and auto idle setting, ensuring the system’s optimal performance for every task. A simple throttle control valve makes it easy to switch between high idle mode for generator use and auto idle mode for air on demand.

40% SMALLER & 36% LIGHTER

VMAC G30 air compressor/generators are engineered and manufactured for mobile applications. The G30 is 40% smaller and 36% lighter than other gas powered air compressor/generator combos on the market today.
