Atlas Copco exhibits rugged XAS 185 portable compressor at The Rental Show


Atlas Copco’s XAS 185 portable compressor gives contractors a reliable source of compressed air for a variety of jobs, including operating pneumatic tools and sandblasting. It’s compact, efficient, economical, and features a 49-horsepower Kubota diesel engine that complies with Tier 4 Final emission standards.

Atlas Copco is exhibiting the XAS 185 Feb. 21-24, 2015, at booth 4047 during The Rental Show in Atlanta.

The XAS 185 features a fully automatic regulator that constantly varies the engine speed according to air demand, which minimizes fuel consumption. The 20-gallon fuel tank allows contractors to use the portable compressor for a full eight-hour shift without needing to refuel. They also can access all the controls quickly and easily from a single panel for smooth, hassle-free operation.

The XAS 185 features Atlas Copco’s HardHat® canopy that is made from highly durable, weather-resistant polyethylene. The canopy not only effectively protects the compressor’s components but also resists impacts and will not corrode. This minimizes repairs and virtually eliminates the need to repaint. As a result, the XAS 185 has a low cost of ownership and high resale value.

The compressor features removable side panels and front and rear baffles, so contractors can access the service points quickly for faster maintenance and reduced downtime. All exterior parts are made of a powder-coated Zincor® steel for excellent corrosion resistance.

“We strive to develop equipment that is among the most efficient in the industry, from the engine to maintenance,” said Michael Sagermann, Atlas Copco vice president and business line manager, portable energy. “This not only makes the XAS 185 ideal for contractors, but also rental centers, where high utilization and fast ROI are key.”
