Chicago Pneumatic Construction Equipment has released the CPS 185 KD T4F portable diesel compressor to the North American marketplace. The flexible and reliable 185 CFM compressor can be utilized for a wide range of general construction applications and is now available from authorized Chicago Pneumatic equipment dealers across the country. Equipped with a water-cooled, 49 hp, 4-cylinder T4F Kubota engine, the 185 CFM compressor delivers a versatile solution for the construction market by hosting a multitude of pneumatic construction tools on the jobsite.
“The CPS 185 KD is Chicago Pneumatics’ first T4F compressor and we have designed it with the operator in mind,” said Eric Massinon, business development manager at Chicago Pneumatic. “Not only is this machine powerful and efficient, but it also provides the user with a list of diagnostics and protective shutdowns. This is all done through a new intuitive controller that makes the transition to T4F easier by taking the guesswork out of the operation.”
The CPS 185 KD has an operating weight of 2,400 lbs, and measures 131 in. long, 60 in. wide, and 55.25 ft tall. With a normal working pressure of 100 psi, the compressor offers a maximum unloading pressure of 125 psi, and features a 20-gallon fuel tank.
Engineered with a low-maintenance design, the 185 KD has few moving parts that help minimize mechanical wear. While the naturally aspirated Kubota engine makes for quiet operation at a 76 dBA sound level, the compressor also features a noise-reducing durable galvanneal sheet metal enclosure that further reduces noise as well as corrosion. For added protection on the go, the compressor is designed for convenient transportation with an adjustable-height hitch for easy towing.
