VMAC announced that its Underhood30 Air Compressor is now available for the Ford Transit EcoBoost commercial van.
This van series air compressor is competitively priced and offers up to 30 CFM at 100 percent duty cycle, making it ideal for operators using air tools for light duty applications.
“We’ve seen tremendous growth in the commercial van industry in North America as businesses introduce vans into their fleets,” says Mike Pettigrew, VMAC’s marketing manager.
“VMAC has responded to our customers’ evolving demands by producing the van series of Underhood30 air compressors for Ford, GMC, Chevrolet, Ram and Mercedes-Benz models. The Underhood30 Air Compressor for the 2013-2017 Ford Transit EcoBoost is the latest addition to this popular van series.”
Weighing just 62 lbs., the VMAC Underhood30 rotary screw air compressor is lightweight and compact. Designed for light duty applications, VMAC reports that its compressor provides 50 percent more output than a bulkier standalone air compressor at a fraction of the weight.
The compressor, which runs off the van’s serpentine belt, can be installed quickly with minimal vehicle modification required. VMAC works closely with van manufacturers to ensure vehicle warranties remain intact with the installation of Underhood air compressors.
Unlike portable gasoline-powered air compressors, the VMAC Underhood30 Van Series compressor operates under the hood and reduces exposure to exhaust in the cargo area. Also, operators don’t have to lug around a portable compressor which can mean fewer injuries.
“2017 has been an exciting year for VMAC with the launch of several new air compressors, as we continue our commitment to meeting the needs of our customers and their businesses,” says Pettigrew. “In addition to the Underhood30 Air Compressor for Ford Transit EcoBoost vans, we also launched the DTM70 at NTEA’s Work Truck Show in March, and just announced the Underhood70 for 2017 GMC Sierra Duramax diesel engines.”
