VMAC UNDERHOOD LITE Air Compressor Available For Ford Transit

VMAC-ProductsVMAC has announced the UNDERHOOD LITE air compressor system is now available on the Ford Transit 3.7L Ti-VCT V6 Van. According to the company, this brings the efficiency, power, safety and performance of the UNDERHOOD LITE air compressor system to the growing number of Ford Transit Van fleets across North America.

Commercial vans, such as the Ford Transit Van, are increasingly taking the place of light-duty work trucks thanks to their fuel efficiency, low gross vehicle weight (GVW), storage space and the ability to work inside a heated or cooled work area, the company says. However, very few purpose-built tools exist for these vans. The specifically designed UNDERHOOD LITE changes that by putting 30 CFM right on the engine of the van at a total weight of only 85 lbs (38.5 kg), VMAC says. This is a mere fraction of the weight of most air compressors. Its size, weight and ease of use make it a perfect choice for construction, utilities and public works fleets.

According to VMAC, the UNDERHOOD LITE addresses four problem areas for van operators when choosing an air compressor.

• It makes workers safer by creating a system that does not require the worker to haul large, heavy and dangerous equipment in and out of the van body. It also eliminates any threat of unhealthy emissions, and the potential for fires while filling up gas tanks inside the cargo area.
• It controls operating costs by reducing fuel consumption due to its lightweight nature; it has a lower price point than many comparable air compressors.
• It frees up cargo space because the system is installed on the van engine.
• It provides the right amount of power for the application. With 30 CFM at 100PSI (max 150PSI) of power, it can meet the needs of any job that vans are used for.

“Happy operators, fleet managers and safety officers is our primary goal,” says Mike Pettigrew, VMAC marketing manager. “The UNDERHOOD LITE air compressor for Ford Transit Vans is the first air compressor that is purpose built for this van. It delivers what it promises, making everyone happy.”

The UNDERHOOD LITE air compressor system is backed by VMAC’s lifetime warranty, providing the protection required to make a sound equipment investment.
