VMAC Introduces Direct-Transmission Mounted Air Compressor for Ford Trucks
VMAC has introduced the DTM70 PTO driven rotary screw air compressor for the Ford F-250 to F-550 Super Duty 6.7L Power Stroke diesel 4x2 and 4x4 work truck with TorqShift Automatic Transmission.
The company says the DTM70 PTO driven rotary screw air compressor is the first commercial Article of its kind in the world. It has all the benefits of a traditional under deck, without the installation hassles – no transfer case modifications, no drive shafts, and no warranty concerns.
"As the global leader in advanced mobile air compressor systems VMAC continues to expand its Article line to meet the growing needs of its customers" says Gordon Duval, vice president of marketing and sales.
"VMAC is the first to offer a PTO driven air compressor that mounts directly to the transmission, eliminating the complex and time consuming installation of traditional underdeck compressor systems" Duval continued.
The VMAC DTM70 is a direct-transmission mounted PTO-driven rotary screw air compressor system that can produce up to 70 CFM at 100% duty cycle. The company says that is enough air power to run a one-inch impact gun or even a 90lb pavement breaker.
The compressor system features easy to use controls; simply press the on/off button on the digital control box and the system will take care of the rest. The PTO engages, the compressor turns on, and the throttle control automatically idles the truck engine up and down to match air demand. For cold climate operation, there is a heater built in so the compressor automatically warms up on the way to the job.
In addition to the ease of use, the DTM70 is easy to install. "Installation time for the VMAC DTM70 on Ford diesel 4x4 trucks is half that of traditional under deck air compressors," Duval says. "Traditional underdeck systems are extremely heavy, are challenged with ground clearance, and require modification of the Ford transfer case on 4x4 models, all of which adds up to significant time and expense for installers," he says.
