Allmand Bros., a subsidiary of Briggs & Stratton Corp., and a manufacturer of portable jobsite equipment, launched its Maxi-Air 100, 375 and 400 portable air compressors and Maxi-Power 65 and 150 mobile generators at the ARA Show.
The new portable compressor and generator products expand our portfolio of heavy-duty, reliable job site equipment,” says Brett Shive, senior field service technician, Allmand. “We’re already seeing high demand for these five new products, and we’re excited to offer our customers in the rental industry a complete, versatile fleet of compressor and power options.”
Maxi-Air 100, 375DP and 400 portable air compressors are designed with a heavy-duty, oversized rotary air screw end to run at lower RPM for longer life and improved fuel efficiency. Developed for ease of use and with easy starting, all compressors are equipped with a Tier 4 final engine and deliver powerful airflow in all climate conditions.
The new Maxi-Air 100 provides a solution for niche industry demands where a smaller compressor is required. On the opposite end of the spectrum, the new 375DP and 400 compressors meet high-pressure application demands. The 375DP is designed with a flexible dual pressure design. “Whatever job our customers are running, we now have a compressor to meet that need,” says Shive.
The new Maxi-Power 65 and 150 mobile generators are built with a durable, oversized alternator to facilitate motor starting. Delivering 65 and 150 kVA prime power, the units are equipped with Tier 4 Final engines, and has a deep-sea controller for easier diagnostic readings. With a frequency switch for flexibility of jobsite power needs and 15-inch tires for longer wear and greater towing capabilities, the 150 is a critical addition to Allmand’s generator offerings and enables customers more options for right-sizing their jobsite power.
Allmand also recently announced a plant expansion at its Holdrege, Neb., headquarters, to improve its ability to meet customer demand. The expansion increases production capacity and speed-to-market with new innovations and includes five new assembly lines, a prototyping lab, a new paint system and robotic weld cells, and enhanced technologies infrastructure. It is expected to be complete at the end of calendar year 2019.
Along with the new generators and compressors, a rendering of the new plant expansion, a Maxi-Heat Burner and several Allmand light tower products, including the new Night-Lite E-Series were on display in Allmand Bros.’ booth.
