Deere "Compresserator" Pumps Air, Electricity
Compresserators come in a portable wheeled model and a larger skid model. The portable model is ideal for smaller, short-term jobs where limited output is needed. It's powered by a 6.5 hp Honda OHV gas engine. The single-stage compressor pumps out 10.9 cfm at 125 psi, while the 120-volt, brushless alternator produces 600 watts continuous on-load current and 1,600 watts continuous off-load current. It's priced at $1,545 suggested retail.
The 425-lb. skid mount unit is designed for larger jobs and for mounting in a trailer or on back of a truck. It's powered by a 13 hp Honda OHV. Its two-stage air compressor puts out 15.7 cfm at 175 psi side by side with the brushless, 12-volt alternator. The alternator produces 2,300 watts on-load output and 3,300 watts continuous off-load output. Suggested retail price is $2,155.
Both models feature heavy-duty, steel base-plate assemblies to reduce vibration and a 14-gauge powder-coated, two-piece belt guard with 1/4 turn release for quick access.
The Compresserators are equipped with 8-gal. twin tanks and gauges for tank and outlet pressure readings as well as a stainless, braided, discharge hose. A full set of air compressor and generator accessories are available, including an electric start option. It adds $319 to the price and doesn't include battery or cables.
