The new flip-up lid simplifies the maintenance process with easy access to check oil level and change the air filter. 

Meanwhile, the reconfigured front-mount bulkhead connectors improve the installation and maintenance process as well.

The SHD-60 is designed to provide reliable air output using a hydraulic direct-drive system.  It has no belts to break or adjust and provides a quick 30 CFM at 100 psi. 

It is built around a heavy ductile iron balance crankshaft with heavy-duty journal bushings and micro-honed connecting rods that are lubricated by an integral oil pump to provide smooth operation and a long life. 

The SHD-60 is available for immediate sale and will be on display at the NTEA Work Truck show in Indianapolis, Ind. and also at the Con Expo/CON AGG show in Las Vegas.
