VMAC has released the G30+GEN gas-powered rotary screw air compressor/generator, which combines two convenient forms of power into a single system.

VMAC's G30+GEN provides 25 CFM of compressed air at 100 psi and is designed to maintain max CFM 100 percent of the time. Operators can quickly switch from compressor mode to generator mode for their tools, lighting, and other equipment, and the G30+GEN will provide 3,600 W of continuous AC output.

"The G30+GEN is a system that maximizes vehicle space," says Tod Gilbert, president of VMAC. "If you use both air and electric power, the G30+GEN eliminates the need for two pieces of bulky equipment – which traditionally take up a significant amount of deck space – by combining two types of power into the smallest, lightest footprint possible."

Like all VMAC products, the G30+GEN was designed to be as small and lightweight as possible. The result is a system that weighs only 295 lb and has a footprint of 7.1 square feet, giving operators more GVW and space for other tools and equipment.

"Compared to other air compressor/generators on the market right now, the G30+GEN is up to 40 percent smaller and 36 percent lighter," says Gilbert. "Those savings are significant when spec'ing out a work truck, and VMAC is unique in our ability to build incredibly compact air systems."

The G30+GEN air compressor/generator is the latest product in VMAC's G30 collection of gas-powered systems. The new air compressor/generator is also an approved Honda application, utilizing Honda's GX390 gas engine to deliver continuous air or AC power.

"Our goal is to create innovative systems that make service truck operators' lives easier. Adding a generator to our highly successful G30 product line is a great way to enhance a system that was already great and make it even more useful in the field," says Gilbert.
