VMAC Announces New UNDERHOOD150 for Ford F650 & F750 Gas Work Trucks

Nanaimo, BC -- VMAC announced today the launch of its latest UNDERHOOD150 rotary screw air compressor system designed specifically for Ford F650 & F750 6.8L Triton V10 gas engine work trucks.  The announcement marks VMAC's fourth product launch this year after the VMAC RAPTAIR-G30 gas drive, the DTM70 PTO drive air compressor and the VMAC UNDERHOOD-LITE air compressor system - all rotary screw air compressors.

"Continually developing and expanding our product lines to meet our customers growing needs is what positions VMAC as the global leader in advanced mobile compressed air systems" says Gordon Duval, VMAC's VP Marketing and Sales. "The addition of the Ford F650 & 750 expands our UNDERHOOD product range to now include the top range of Ford's medium duty F Series truck" Duval continued.

VMAC's UNDERHOOD system provides 100% duty cycle and up to 150 CFM and 175 psi and is proven to work in extreme climate conditions making it the most reliable mobile air compressor available. The mounting kit is specifically engineered to fit the Ford F650 and F750 engine and chassis making it an easy installation, taking only a few hours.

"VMAC's UNDERHOOD line of air compressors offer significant advantages in that they are much more compact and lightweight than typical mobile air compressors" Duval stated. "There is no installed deck footprint compared to up to 76 cubic feet of typical deck mounted compressors, which provides our customers with more free deck space.  The system weighs in at a mere 200lbs, substantially lighter than a typical utility mount system of 1,900 lbs (861 kg) and according to the Environmental Protection Agency fuel savings of up to 2% per 100lbs can be achieved by reducing the GVWR," Duval continued.

"We're very proud of this product announcement. It underscores our commitment to exceeding our customers' expectations by continually evolving our advanced air solutions to help them reduce expenses, improve productivity and grow their bottom line" Duval said.
