VMAC Releases Air Compressor for Ford Transit Vans

May 24, 2017

The latest Van Series air compressor from VMAC is designed for Ford Transit EcoBoost commercial vans. The Underhood30 air compressor offers up to 30 CFM at 100% duty cycle.

VMAC says the new Underhood30 air compressor is attractively priced and is the best choice 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 pounds (28 kg), the VMAC Underhood30 rotary screw air compressor is lightweight and compact. The company says it is perfect for light duty applications; the compressor provides 50% more output of a bulkier standalone air compressor at a fraction of the weight.

This affordable option can be installed quickly as there is minimal vehicle modification required, with the air compressor running off the van's own belt. VMAC works closely with van manufacturers to ensure vehicle warranties remain intact with the installation of Uunderhood air compressors.

The VMAC Underhood30 Van Series air compressor also solves several unique safety challenges that traditional standalone air compressors present. With the Van Series air compressor safely stored under the hood of the vehicle, operators aren't exposed to toxic exhaust in the cargo area, or at risk of gas fires. Moreover, without the need to lift and move a heavy piece of machinery in the van's cargo area, operators are less likely to suffer from lifting 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, the company recently launched the DTM70 and the Underhood70 for 2017 GMC Sierra Duramax diesel engines.
