Vanair is introducing the Viper Diesel 80 cfm air compressor with infinitely variable throttle control to help reduce fuel consumption. Powerful enough to operate most 90-lb. jackhammers, the rugged system is small enough to fit behind the cab of a vehicle or be mounted on the sidepack, according to the company.

Completely self-contained and easily transferable via a lifting bail, the Viper Diesel provides customers the air power they need, when and where they need it without vehicle and/or engine modification. The Viper features a tier 4 certified Kubota engine and reduces vehicle idle time – saving fuel and extending vehicle engine lifespan, according to Vanair.
