VMAC says its light, compact Predatair40 above-deck hydraulic air compressor delivers up to 40 CFM and 150 PSI at a dry weight of 150 pounds. The rotary-screw Predatair40 is designed to run impact guns, air ratchets, handheld chisels, air chucks and hammer drills from a 17-by-18-by-24-inch package. The device also is outfitted with cold- and soft-start features, unload circuit, standby mode, service reminders and system status display.

The Predatair40 is designed with built-in freeze protection for operation in cold temperatures, which helps protect the device and its hydraulic system, according to VMAC. The air compressor, which the company says can operate at 100 percent duty cycle, includes its own cooling system and a remote LCD digital control box with system diagnostics, servicing intervals, compressor and hydraulic temperature readings, and total system hours.
