The Brüder Australia designed compressor sits on a rugged custom-built checker plate trailer and running gear with 15-inch wheels, all terrain tyres and off-road springs to offer the longest possible trailer life for The team at Brüder Australia were getting numerous requests for a diesel compressor suited to our harsh local agriculture conditions.
It was after assessing the many industrial grade units available they concluded that no current model was up to the task.
To make sure they were on the right track, Brüder Australia talked to grain growers and contractors and after several months started to piece together a list of requirements for the machine to suit most agricultural users.
Brüder Australia commenced building a prototype of the ultimate compressor which has gone on to become Australia’s first diesel compressor built especially for Agriculture.
Due to the valuable input from the farming community, there are several standard inclusions that set a Brüder Kompressor apart from industrial units that haven’t been designed for agricultural use.
There is a unique air flow system paired with filters and separators designed to combat extremely dusty conditions and high temperatures.
A vertical top mounted exhaust to significantly reduce exhaust related fire risk. The turbo-charged Kubota 4-cylinder diesel engine and belt-driven air-end in a side-by-side mounting configuration makes the compressor very compact.
Side-mounted controls mean safe operation without risk of being run over.
A 70-litre poly diesel tank allows for all-day running – reducing the need to refill in the paddock.
An insulated cabinet provides noise reduction and thermal control in extreme temperatures.
The units sit on tough custom-built braked trailers and running gear with 15-inch wheels, all terrain tyres, heavy-duty springs, a spare wheel and steel wheel guards as standard – that offers the longest possible trailer life on and off road.
The Brüder 176cfm compressor provides the power and versatility to run more than one blowdown kit, use rock breakers, drills, pumps or do some minor abrasive blasting.
The most popular AG176 compressors are fitted with Kubota engines, while other compressors in the range are available with Caterpillar or Perkins power units.
All three engine manufacturers are reputable, reliable and have an extensive network of agents for service and spares.
A range of optional extras are available to complement the machines, in particular, Force 5 Megablaster blowdown guns that are extremely effective when paired with a large compressor.
This stronger force is due to a Venturi ‘turbo’ nozzle that increases flow by up to three times at the tip. Hose reels with 20m of large bore hose can be mounted to the units, to save operators from struggling to roll up stray hoses in the back of a ute
All other possible options are also covered, including inbuilt generators, aftercoolers, air filtration and lubrication modules.
Brüder Kompressors are in stock now but be sure to get your order in quickly as there is only limited numbers left available since the start of the season.
