Designed for heavy-duty construction environments, the XAS 750 JD7 Tier 4a portable compressor generates 750 CFM of air at 100 psi. Its 200-hp John Deere engine uses Exhaust Gas Recirculation technology to reduce NOx emissions. Further, the electronically controlled, water-cooled engine, variable speed fan, and new Atlas Copco air end reduces fuel consumption to 8.2 gallons per hour at 100 percent load. The XAS fits cleanly into a single-axel, fast-track enclosure. According to the company, the enclosure is sound suppressed and smaller than competitively sized compressor packages. The compressor features an A-frame drawbar, surge hydraulic brakes and torsion bar suspension, which provides durability, stability and road performance when in tow. It is also available in a support-mounted configuration.  — Atlas Copco Construction Equipment, Commerce City, Co.;
