Benefits

Free up to 23 cubic feet 

VMAC UNDERHOOD40 air compressors free up to 23 cubic feet on the truck deck or cargo area because the air compressor mounts in the engine compartment. The only space required on the truck deck or cargo area is 1.7 cubic feet for a combined air/oil cooler and air/oil separator tank.  

Decrease truck GVW by up to 290 lbs 

VMAC UNDERHOOD40 air compressors reduce truck GVW by as much as 290 lbs.  Less weight means you can carry more, or take advantage of improved fuel economy. The Environmental Protection Agency reports that for every 100 lbs taken from a vehicle, fuel economy is increased by up to 2%. 

Up to 40 CFM, 100% of the time 

VMAC UNDERHOOD40 air compressors use patented rotary screw technology designed to run at 100% duty cycle without stopping, so operators don’t have to wait for their air compressor to fill up a large air receiver tank.
