Product description

Peerless are proud to announce a range of engine powered Rotary Screw Compressors.

We have always been involved with screw compressors and have now designed our own engine driven units to suit the demands of the Australian market after much consulting.

Built and manufactured in Australia we pride this range on its reliability and quality to last in the tough Australian Conditions. Yanmar and Honda are both world renowned in their production of engines with a huge 3 year warranties to back it. All Honda and Yanmar engines built for the Australian market are compliant with strict emission standards. The Air end is a Peerless design suited for our tough conditions which has the ultimate air efficiency, low noise, at the highest quality standards.

Key start as standard, 1 x 1/2" outlets and a stainless-steel pressure gauge all at a convenient position when sitting on the back of your Ute or truck.

Get the ultimate feature and add a diesel lift pump - plumb from your truck or Ute's fuel line to feed your air compressors fuel to eliminate having to fuel manually. Just keep your truck or Ute fuel tank fuelled up. The Yanmar L100 will consume 1.65L per hour while idling and consume 2.2L per hour when in load / producing air!

This ultimate work horse will produce enough air to operate your 3/4" to 1" impact guns. Awesome air performance for machinery blow downs or even filter blow outs. Tyre inflation with ease! The compact design makes this one of Australia's compact rotary screw compressors offered on the market with a small engine. The protective shields assist in preventing any damage to any major componentry. Ease of serving and maintaining this air compressor was also in mind when developing. All your filters are easily accessible.

Remote start with emergency stop can be fitted to this air compressor to meet any onsite job requirements.

Optional extras to consider when ordering:

  • Fuel pump – lift pump
  • MDG15 Mine compliant retro box
  • Wiring lumen extension (single or twin)
  • Specially build to meet your requirements

Key things to check:

  • Check the positioning of your air compressor – efficient air flow, dusty environment - keep an eye on air intake element.
  • Change the oil -  if discoloured change immediately, this is the life line of your air compressor.
  • Change the air intake filter - This will keep the pump working efficiently and keep the oil clean protecting your bearings or Air-end.
  • Inspect your V belts – Make sure you have the right tension and no wear and tear.
  • Correct ventilation around the air compressor – all air compressors need air flow.
  • Check all your inline filters – restricted or blocked filters lower your efficiency to work by reducing your air flow – these work harder in hotter months.

Diesel lift pump - optional extra.
