Atlas Copco launches two-tool compressor

ATLAS Copco has revealed that its new XAS 58 air compressor helps operators benefit from  the powering of two hand tools from a single unit while complying with Stage V regulations.

The compressor weighs under 750kg and can be towed behind a regular car without a special driving licence.

Atlas Copco set out to address Stage V regulation demands without losing the benefits associated with two-toolers. As the regulation affects machinery with diesel engines over 19kW, the manufacturer explained that traditional two-tool compressors will require additional equipment to limit emissions to ensure compliance, eliminating the saving achieved by using one compressor to power two tools.

To overcome this issue, Atlas Copco re-engineered its XAS 58 products, fitting it with a mechanical engine under 19kW.

The XAS 58 is designed to power two hand tools, boosting productivity and reducing costs.

Built for harsh environments, the XAS 58 features Atlas Copco’s HardHat canopy. Made of linear medium-density polyethylene (PE), the cover is said to protect the compressor from the elements. The compressor is also available with an integrated generator.
