CURRENT MODELS AND TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS

Portable air compressors are self-contained packages that provide power to a wide range of air-operated tools and equipment: Breakers, hammers, tampers, drills, chipping guns, sandblasters, painting equipment and various kinds of hand tools. These machines are a familiar sight on road construction and maintenance projects, on bridge building and repair jobs, as well as many other general construction and maintenance projects. The reader should note that this equipment analysis covers portable air compressors that have a rated free air output of 75 cubic feet per minute (cfm) and up, with operating pressure ratings from 100 pounds per square inch (psi) and up.
