VMAC’s G30 gas engine-driven air compressor is now powered by a Honda GX390 gas engine. It offers up to 30 CFM at 100 per cent duty cycle, making it ideal for operators using air tools for light-duty applications, including mobile mechanics, tire service technicians, and light duty contractors. The change from the Subaru EX40 engine to the Honda GX390 engine is significant as it represents several major improvements to VMAC’s popular G30 air compressor. First, the gas engine driven air compressor is now 23 per cent quieter at high idle, and 75 per cent quieter at low idle. Second, it’s 15 per cent more fuel efficient, running longer on a single tank of gas. Third, the VMAC G30 now has improved operational performance at hot temperatures and high elevations.
