VMAC UNDERHOOD30 Air Compressor Now Available For 2017 Ford F-250 & F-350



VMAC has launched the latest UNDERHOOD30 air compressor for 2017 Ford F-250 and F-350 trucks. This rotary screw air compressor is designed to fit with the Ford 6.2L V8 gas engine, while ensuring the new truck warranty remains intact.

"Out of 25,000 VMAC UNDERHOOD air compressors installed on work trucks worldwide, about 15,000 have been on Ford trucks. We're proud to offer this 30 CFM air compressor for 2017 Ford trucks to meet our customers' needs as they upgrade their vehicles," says Mike Pettigrew, VMAC's Marketing Manager.

The VMAC UNDERHOOD30 Air Compressor for the 2017 Ford 6.2L V8 Gas is the lightest weight mobile air compressor available, weighing just 62lbs (32kg). This lightweight air compressor reduces truck GVW by up to 290lbs, offering Ford owners better fuel economy. It's also compact, freeing up to 23 cubic feet in the truck bed, allowing for more cargo space.

With up to 30 CFM at 100% duty cycle, it is the perfect solution for light-duty applications including tire servicing, utility servicing, and forklift repair. Even in extreme desert and arctic climates, the VMAC UNDERHOOD30 Air Compressor will continue to operate, as it is installed under the hood of the truck, protected from the elements.

"This is the third UNDERHOOD air compressor we've launched in 2017," says Mike Pettigrew. "The UNDERHOOD30 for 2017 Ford 6.2L V8 Gas trucks follows the recent launches of the UNDERHOOD30 for 2017 Ford Transit EcoBoost vans, and the UNDERHOOD70 for GMC's 2017 Sierra Duramax Diesel trucks. VMAC is committed to adding to the product line of compact and powerful mobile air compressors as new work trucks and vans are released."

Learn About Compressed Natural Gas CNG Fuel


Compressed Natural Gas CNG fuel is an oderless, tasteless gas that is naturally created by the decomposition of organic matter over time. The major component of Compressed Natural Gas CNG fuel is methane, one of the cleanest burning fuels known to man. What makes CNG Fuel clean? It’s chemical formula tells the story – CH4 – which means that it only contains one carbon atom along with four hydrogen atoms. With only one carbon atom, CNG fuel’s ‘carbon footprint’ is dramatically lower than gasoline (C8H18 + 25 O2) with 8 carbon atoms, or diesel (C12H23), with a minimum of 12 carbon atoms. But that’s not the entire story. When CNG fuel combusts, it’s byproduct is CO2 and H20 – or carbon dioxide and water. That is far from the case with gasoline or diesel. It is this fact alone that requires gasoline and diesel engines to require exhaust after treatment – which is needed to remove the toxic chemicals that result from diesel / gasoline combustion. In fact, diesel requires the addition of urea to ensure that exhaust emissions out of a diesel truck’s exhaust stack are compliant with Federal Clean Air requirements.
Compressed Natural Gas CNG fuel is found naturally in the ground and is routinely captured and pumped through our nation’s natural gas pipeline – but is also captured at many of our land fills through the natural decomposition of trash we throw away every day. It’s also the same gas that heats our homes and cooks our food. It’s clean, safe, and sustainable.

Meritor 13X axle can now be spec’d on International Trucks

Meritor's 13X axle can now be spec'd for International Trucks
Meritor announced this week that its 13X single-drive axle can be spec’d by fleets purchasing medium-duty trucks from International Trucks. It will become standard equipment on DuraStar models in July.
“The 13X axle brings Meritor’s legendary durability and efficiency to a wide range of applications in the medium-duty market,” said Ken Hogan, vice president of rear drivetrain for Meritor.
“International Trucks’ medium-duty customers spec’ing the 13X will be equipping their fleets with an axle system that is lighter, more efficient and tailored to their needs. It’s a smart choice for this market.”
Built on Meritor’s proven 14X platform and optimized for medium-duty, the 13X is 59 pounds lighter and .5 percent more efficient than the company’s previous offering. Available in a variety of ratios from 3.90 to 6.50 and with gross axle weight ratings (GAWR) between 17,000 and 21,000 pounds, the 13X is engineered for multiple medium-duty applications, including pick-up and delivery, beverage, utility, school bus, construction and ambulance.
The power-dense 13X is ideal for applications with standard differentials. For limited application options that the 13X will not address, including ratios or driver-controlled differential lock, the 14X single-axle platform will continue to be available. The 13X can be configured with hydraulic disc brakes or drum brakes.
OnTrac and DriveForce, Meritor’s North American sales and service organization, are available to assist customers with solutions before, during and after the sale.
