VMAC has announced the product release of the DTM70-H, the world’s first direct transmission mounted PTO driven air compressor with hydraulics. The VMAC DTM70-H maximizes productivity with up to 70 cfm of air at 100 psi, and up to 14.9 gpm of hydraulic flow at 3265 psi, all at 100% duty cycle.
“This new innovative product provides work truck owners and fleets with continuous duty compressed air, and hydraulic power to run a crane or other equipment, all in one complete, compact, and easy to install system,” said Gordon Duval, VMAC’s VP of Marketing and Sales. “Prior to this innovation, service truck operators required two separate systems to run both operations, adding costs, installation time and complexity, maintenance routines, as well as increasing weight and taking up space on the truck.”
The VMAC DTM70-H installs 30% faster than competitive hydraulic systems, reducing installation time, complexity and cost. It is lightweight, and results in up to 600 lbs in reduced truck GVW. This weight savings offers a substantial reduction in fuel costs, as the EPA estimates a 2% reduction in fuel consumption for every 100 lbs of vehicle weight savings. Additionally, as the DTM70-H is an underdeck PTO driven system, there’s zero footprint on the truck deck. Not only does this provide for a clean looking vehicle, it also creates significantly more space for storing tools and equipment in the back of the truck.
“With this latest innovation, VMAC has solved many industry challenges and we believe the VMAC DTM70-H will become the standard for underdeck compressed air and hydraulic air systems moving forward. With no drive shafts or transfer case modifications involved, there is simply no better, or more elegant solution for air and hydraulics in one compact, powerful and easy to install system” said Duval.
The DTM70-H can be installed on 2017-2018 Ford F250-F550 Super Duty diesel trucks, and like all VMAC air compressors, is backed by a VMAC Lifetime Limited Warranty.
