Kaeser C M55 Pe 46 100294Kaeser says its new M55PE Mobilair compressor is ideal for construction, demolition and other heavy-duty tasks and is able to run 10 hours without refueling.

The compressor produces up to 185 cubic feet per minute at 100 psig, and it can be adjusted to 125 psig. It runs on a Tier 4 Final Kubota diesel engine, which has a 21-gallon tank.

Kaeser put the Sigma Control Smart electronic controller at eye level with an intuitive user display, system monitoring and diagnostics. The compressor is also equipped with a cold-start battery and an anti-frost valve to prevent tool freezing.

The steel chassis is powder-coated and topped with a scratch- and dent-resistant polyethylene cover with wide wing doors to access maintenance points. Other features include spin-on air/oil separator, torsion bar suspension, larger wheels and tires, and an LED lighting package.
