LE & LF piston compressors

The LE is a single-stage oil-lubricated reciprocating compressor with a maximum pressure of 10 bar (145 psi). 

The LF is a single-stage two-cylinder oil-free reciprocating compressor with a maximum working pressure of 10 bar (145 psi).

In addition to snowmaking, these compressors are suitable for a number of industrial applications such as transportation, box-folding and printing.

LF oil-free snow maker

Withstands the cold

Special air inlets and outlets prevent our snow compressor from freezing. Will operate non-stop for snow-making in extremely low temperatures.

Engineered to meet the needs of a wide variety of applications and industries.
 Low vibration and excellent cooling.

Compressors for all snow cannon applications

Laying the snow base, expanding a resort with new trails, or looking for an alternative to load shaving or making new snow? Our LE and LF snow piston compressors will do the job, whatever the temperature, because they are designed to work with snow cannons, snow guns or any snow making machine.

The ideal snow making machine

Its combination of low maintenance, minimal environmental impact, minimum energy usage and high reliability make this range ideal for any snow maker application.


Piston compressors are ideal for smaller air demands typical for snow-making, thanks to their minimum energy usage.

Safe and easy to maintain

Industrial components make this range easy to maintain. Minimum oil carry-over keeps the environment safe.
