VMAC released the latest UNDERHOOD™ 70 air compressor installation kit for Chevrolet and International trucks. The UNDERHOOD™ 70 is now available for International 6.6-L Duramax V8 Diesel trucks on the CV 515 chassis, as well as GMC C4500 through C6500 6.6-L Duramax V8 Diesel trucks.
“Our engineering team works hard on an ongoing basis to develop new applications as new model year trucks are released,” Barry Fitzgerald, director of engineering and quality at VMAC, says. “Our customers asked for an UNDERHOOD™ application for the latest Chevy and International trucks and we are pleased to deliver on that request.”
This newest application for the UNDERHOOD™ 70 is just the latest available, with additional 2019 applications previously released for Ford and RAM trucks. Several 2020 model year applications are already in development and will be released after they are tested on the new trucks once they arrive.
“UNDERHOOD™ air compressors are in high demand because they are lightweight, save space, and deliver air power on demand in any climate,” Mike Pettigrew, VMAC’s marketing manager, says. “The UNDERHOOD™ is VMAC’s flagship product, first developed in the 1990’s, and continues to be one of our most popular air compressor systems to this day.”
The UNDERHOOD™ line was first released in 1997 when VMAC manufactured the very first rotary screw air compressor to be mounted in the engine compartment of a truck. To date, more than 25,000 UNDERHOOD™ air compressors have been sold to customers across the globe.
