Speedy, the U.K.’s leading provider of rental and support services, has invested more than £3.2 million (about U.S. $5.1 million) in Doosan Model 7/31G compressor generators, which allows air tools to be powered at the same time as electrical equipment. With an auxiliary generator output of 6.5kva, electricity can be supplied in conjunction with compressed air output. This feature improves onsite-efficiency by allowing air tools such as air jacks to be powered at the same time as power tools or lighting.
Weighing slightly more than 700 kilograms, each unit can be towed by any vehicle without the need for additional operator training. The model is typically used by the utility sector and has a free air delivery of 105cfm at 100 psi. The compressor and generator can be run simultaneously. The unit conforms to current EC noise regulations.
“Exemplary efficiency is one of the key characteristics our customers require,” said Speedy supply chain director Andy Connor. “By allowing electrical tools to be run in conjunction with air tools, the Doosan 7/31G deftly meets this requirement. Its dual functionality makes it ideal for contractors working in the utilities sector, where we expect to see significant demand for this product.”
Speedy Hire is based in Newton-le-Willows, Merseyside, U.K.
