UNDERHOOD™ Air Compressors For Trucks & Vans: Models From 40 CFM Up To 110 CFMIn this video, Darren Darnley from VMAC gives an overview of VMAC’s line of UNDERHOOD air compressor systems. UNDERHOOD air compressors are installed in the engine compartment of the truck or van, making them the best choice for fleet managers and operators concerned with space and weight on their service vehicles.
UNDERHOOD air compressors free up to 80 cubic feet on the truck deck or cargo area because the air compressor mounts in the engine compartment.
UNDERHOOD air compressors reduce truck GVW by as much as 1,900 lb. Choosing a lightweight air compressor means you’ll be able to add more tools and equipment to your truck, carry more materials, take advantage of better fuel economy, or even downsize your truck classification.
UNDERHOOD air compressors require less maintenance because stand-alone engine driven air compressors have their own engines that require servicing and repairs.
UNDERHOOD air compressors use patented rotary screw technology designed to run at 100% duty cycle without stopping or overheating, so operators don’t have to wait for their air compressor.
UNDERHOOD air compressors are proven to work in any extreme climate, chosen as the air compressor system of choice in arctic and desert environments.
