The Goodall Power Center 1100 is a 3-in-1 power unit for light- to medium-duty use.
• Provides 170 amps of welding power, 4,000 watts of AC electrical power and 16.3 cubic feet per minute of air power
• Designed for mobile service mechanics
• Can be bolted into the bed of a pickup or service body truck.
The Chicago Pneumatic CPS 185-DD portable compressor is designed for 500-hour service intervals and features a fully galvanized enclosure with removable side panels.
• Uses a 48-horsepower, three-cylinder Deutz Interim Tier 4 engine
• Curbside control panel has a protective shutdown
• Has 100-psi working pressure.
• Follow manufacturer’s recommendations for proper operation and routine maintenance. Despite safety features such as fan and belt guards, only trained technicians should adjust compressor components.
• Do not adjust safety, blow-off or control valves without referring to the operating manual. For example, improper adjustments can cause “air explosions” from the safety valve – startling and perhaps even injuring experienced operators.
• Do not change filters or check fluids while the compressor is running. Spraying fluids such as oil can cause burns or serious injury.
• Check for the correct tire pressure. Improperly inflated tires can affect road handling, damage the tire and make transportation dangerous.
• Check for excessive tread wear on the compressor tires.
• Replace worn or unreadable safety stickers on enclosure.
• Ensure that pressure and temperature gauges are working.
• Carefully inspect mechanical components for rust, wear and proper operation: hinges, tow bars, hitches, safety chains, tires and lug nuts.
