VMAC has released its newest Direct-Transmission Mounted PTO Driven Air Compressor, designed specifically for RAM trucks. The DTM70 is the world's first direct-transmission mounted PTO driven air compressor, currently available for Ford F-250 to F-750 Power Stroke Diesel trucks, and now RAM 3500 to 5500 chassis cab Cummins Diesel trucks.

"We're pleased to be expanding our Direct-Transmission Mounted PTO Driven Air Compressor product line," says Barry Fitzgerald, VMAC's Engineering Manager. "We've seen a major demand for a DTM70 application for RAM, and it's VMAC's priority to deliver the products and systems that our customers and industry partners are requesting."

The DTM70 Air Compressor produces up to 70 CFM at 100 psi (175 psi max) and is very popular in industries such as commercial tire services, oil and gas mobile mechanics, utility servicing and heavy equipment repair. It is powerful enough to use for OTR tire inflation, 1" impact wrenches, 60 lb. jackhammers and pavement breakers, vertical/horizontal grinders and sanders and other small to medium sized air tools with high air demand.

The VMAC DTM70 is the best choice for customers who are concerned with saving space and reducing weight on their service trucks. It is a popular choice for those looking to save space on their truck decks, as it is installed under the truck. The complete system weighs just 150 lbs, making it a lightweight choice compared to traditional deck-mount air compressors or other underdeck systems.

"The DTM70 offers many advantages over traditional underdeck air compressors," notes Mike Pettigrew, VMAC's Marketing Manager. "Not only is it lightweight, the VMAC DTM70 installs up to 50% faster than other underdeck air compressors, as there are no modifications required to the RAM or Ford transfer case, no drive shafts required, and no additional components to be sourced. The new DTM70 for RAM is also tucked up under the truck, and does not change the truck's ground clearance, another advantage against other underdeck systems."
