The introduction of Stage V has a significant impact on small diesel air compressors. With Atlas Copco's 8 series range, you don't only keep the benefits you are used to. We are even adding new features.
The 8 series compressor are not only Stage V compliant, they are also 25% more fuel efficient. And the best part? You keep the benefits you are used to: a full PE hood and back baffle and most models still under 750 kg so you can tow them without the need for a special driver licence.
Intelligent controllers ease operation, increase utilization rate and boost energy efficiency. All this compressor data can also be accessed remotely through Fleetlink. All compressors with electronic engines (over 19 kW) have an integrated controller: the easy-to-use Xc1004 or the advanced Xc2003. The last one also enables PACE and ECO-Mode functionalities to consequently boost utilization and energy savings during idling situations.
All standard models under 750 kg for easy transport without a special drivers license, PE protection for increased reliability and resale value, service in under an hour for increased uptime. None of these known and appreciated 8 series benefits have been sacrificed with the introduction of Stage V.
The 8 series compressor is your construction buddy. The integrated generator increases efficiency on site as there is no need to roll in a generator for small power needs. In addition, the 8 series compressors are easy to lift, transport and maneuver, no matter where you need it. The single sheet reinforced frame with C3 certified anti-corrosion paint further protects your investment from the elements.
Choose a compressor that can do it all. Our new two-tooler package teams up a XAS 58 (5m³/min) compressor with no less than 2 RTEX 25 pneumatic breakers, a dust collector and, optionally, a light tower powered by the compressor’s built-in generator. That is just one compressor powering almost an entire construction site.
