VMAC G30 SOLVES COMMON AIR COMPRESSOR CHALLENGES

Common Air Compressor Challenges


To celebrate the recent launch of the VMAC G30 Gas Engine Driven Air Compressor, now powered by Honda, VMAC ran a G30 Giveaway Contest. (Watch the video on our Facebook page!) In this contest we asked entrants to answer three simple questions. One of these questions asked fleet managers and operators what their top challenges with their current truck-mounted air compressors are. Here are the results:

Common Air Compressor Challenges

With seven options to choose from, the top three results were size, air output and weight, accounting for almost 60% of the responses. The VMAC G30 was designed and engineered to address the concerns fleet managers and operators have with their current equipment.

SIZE

VMAC G30 Gas Drive Air CompressorAir compressor size was the number one challenge our survey identified. The VMAC G30 is 50% smaller* than other competitive air compressors, measuring just 34” (l) x 21.5” (w) x 24” (h), making it small enough to fit on the side pack of a single rear wheel service body. The compact size frees up to 15 cubic feet on the truck body, and leaves more room in the back of the truck for supplies, tools, and equipment. Another bonus is that visibility is improved, as the short height of the G30 means it won’t obstruct the view in the rear window.

VMAC G30 Gas Drive Air Compressor

AIR OUTPUT

Not only is the G30 compact, it is also powerful—50% more powerful* than other competitive air compressors. Producing 30 CFM 100% of the time, the G30 can operate at 100% duty cycle, which means you won’t have to wait for air to build, and you can work without interruption, thanks to continuous air supply. The G30 doesn’t need a large air receiver tank either, which aids in the size challenge.

WEIGHT

Weight challenges are minimized with the VMAC G30, which weighs 50% less* than other competitive air compressors. Weighing just 205 lbs (93 kg), the G30 is over 200 lbs lighter. Not only does every pound of GVW count when building a truck service body, especially because vehicle weight restrictions vary by state, but the Environmental Protection Agency reports that for every 100 lbs of weight reduction, a vehicle’s fuel economy can increase by up to 2%. This means that with 200lbs less weight, the VMAC G30 can save you up to 4% in truck fuel costs.

*Compared to competing 22 to 30 CFM reciprocating gas engine driven air compressors, with 30-gallon air receiver tank.

OPERATING IN COLD TEMPERATURES

Respondents in Canada and the Northeast and Midwestern states noted operating air compressors in cold temperatures to be particularly challenging. To ensure the air compressor can operate in extreme cold, a cold climate kit can be installed on the G30. The G30 with cold climate kit is proven to start-up at temperatures of -30°C (-22°F).**

**Due diligence and additional care may be required for prolonged operation in temperatures reaching below -15°C (5°F).

TRANSFERABILITY

The VMAC G30’s lightweight and compact design makes it easier to transfer than heavier air compressors weighing over 400 lbs. The lifting hook makes for easy installation on the service truck as well.

MAINTENANCE

The VMAC G30 is easy to maintain, with servicing recommended every 200 hours or every 6 months. The compressor is oil injected; oil forms a seal between the rotors so they don’t wear against each other. The G30 compressor doesn’t contain any gears, reed-valves, piston rings, or components that will fatigue or become fouled, which means with proper servicing and operation, the compressor should never require rebuilding. The G30 comes with a VMAC Lifetime Limited Warranty, and the reliable Honda GX390 engine comes with a 3-year warranty (limited).

OPERATING IN HOT TEMPERATURES

Operating air compressors in hot temperatures was a concern for some operators and fleet managers, predominately those located in areas like Texas, Virginia, Arizona, and California. The G30 is proven to operate at temperatures up to 40°C (104°F) and is protected by a compressor oil temperature switch that opens at 140°C (284°F) and shuts down and disables the engine until the oil temperature drops below 139°C (282°F).

MINIMIZE CHALLENGES WITH THE VMAC G30

Each of these seven challenges can be addressed with upgrading your air compressor to the VMAC G30 Gas Engine Driven Air Compressor. Not only is it 50% smaller, 50% lighter, and 50% more powerful, but it is also proven to operate in the most extreme climates. It’s also easy to transfer and maintain, allowing you to spend your time on the job, not struggling with your equipment.

Learn more about the VMAC G30, or find a dealer. You can also find a VMAC Sales Rep—they’ll be happy to answer your questions, and provide you with a demo of the air compressor, so you can see the G30 in action for yourself.

Masterack’s new rear-seat packages recently designed for the Nissan Titan King Cab with rear-seat delete allow convenient storage inside the truck cab. The packages add more organization and ease of access to tools and equipment.
 
Nissan has rounded out its pickup lineup with the introduction of a King Cab for its Titan and Titan XD—a configuration that features a commercial application friendly rear seat delete option.
The rear seat delete—a first for its segment—removes the rear seat, rear heater duct and rear roof-mounted assist grips and adds a flat rear load floor and rear wall finisher with tie-down hooks for secure in-cab storage space.

“This feature is going to be extremely well received by commercial truck buyers for its extra utility and secure, climate-safe storage space inside the cab. It’s a real workhorse like the new Single Cab, but with more flexibility to stow equipment and other valuables,” says Fred Diaz, Nissan division vice president and general manager, North America Trucks and Light Commercial Vehicles.

Tongue Weight Safety Demonstration


Proper trailer tongue weight improves the vehicle and trailer towing experience by improving performance. Not enough tongue weight or force on the hitch/tow ball causes an increase in trailer sway from side to side, making it difficult to control. Conversely, too much tongue weight or force on the hitch/tow ball could overload the rear tires of the towing vehicle, pushing the rear end of the vehicle around. This could also negatively affect the vehicle handling. Performance is impaired as you might not be able to go around corners and curves properly, and your vehicle may not stop quickly enough when you press the brake pedal. The Weigh Safe Drop Hitch effectively measures the tongue weight of your towing load, improving the vehicle tow load balance and performance.

Winter Tire Test: Some Treads Are Better Than Others



By Bruce W. Smith

Every so often I find myself checking out the tires of the vehicles around me when stopped in traffic, wondering how this or that one performs compared to the factory tires on my pickup truck. My questions become even more pointed in winter: Should I invest in a set of winter tires? Would mud tires be a good choice or all-terrain? Would it be worth the investment to buy a dedicated snow tire and run them half the year?

To find out, we went to the snow-covered hills just a few miles outside Steamboat Springs, Colo. Carved into the deep snow were three perfectly groomed snow courses with big berms and a variety of twists, turns and elevation changes. These tracks are the training grounds for the Bridgestone Winter Driving School. They also serve as the perfect location to test tires — and for us to see how popular pickup tire tread patterns compare when pitted against each other under controlled winter driving conditions.

And even though it's spring, the information we're offering here should help you decide what kind of tires you want next winter.

The Contenders
We spent two days this past winter with Woody Rogers and T.J. Campbell, product information specialists for Tire Rack, comparing popular 275/65R18 tires on a twisting, curving half-mile section of track three behind the wheel of two identical 2016 Ford F-150 4x4s. The tire comparison contenders were:

  • Goodyear Wrangler Fortitude HT OWL SL (P-metric)
  • Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2 SL (P-metric)
  • Goodyear Ultra Grip Ice WRT LT (E load range)
  • BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2 RWL LT (C load range)
  • Firestone Destination MT LT (E load range)

Nissan TITAN XT Breaks the Light Duty SnowPlow Barrier

Plow More Snow in Less Time with a TITAN XD!



This Titan was spotted on a Nissan dealers lot in Maine. I stopped to check out the 8 foot Fisher SnowPlow blade on this pickup.



This is the first pickup in its class that will support the use of a Heavy Duty SnowPlow blade. Further research shows that this Titan XD with the 4900 Lb front end rating could accept a heavy Duty snowplow up to 9 feet in length.  Boss SnowPlows will allow up to a 9.2 FT V-Blade on this pickup chassis

This is very significant, many of the other "domestic" pickups in this class will only allow a 7 1/2 foot plow because of their lower vehicle front weight ratings. This Titan will plow more snow in less time than competitive products

Note that the Nissan Titan is manufactured in the USA in Mississippi.

New 2020 Nissan TITAN XD – a confident hauler with a fresh, bold design, more power and standard Safety Shield 360


WHAT'S NEW:
  • New 2020 TITAN XD offers the comfort of a light duty truck with the towing confidence of a heavy duty hauler
  • Retuned 5.6-liter Endurance® V8 – with 400 horsepower and 413 lb-ft of torque – now matched with new 9-speed automatic transmission
  • Bold new exterior with unique grille designs features powerful front end, available dual panel moonroof
  • Nissan Safety Shield 360 technology, a suite of six advanced driver-assist systems including class-exclusive Rear Automatic Braking1, is standard
  • Refined interior offers new Integrated Command Center with 9" high-resolution touchscreen display; standard front and rear Zero Gravity seats
  • New TITAN XD goes on sale in early 2020
Following the successful launch of the redesigned 2020 Nissan TITAN full-size pickup, the powerful 2020 TITAN XD takes its turn in the spotlight with a full slate of upgrades and enhancements for the new model year. The new TITAN XD shares many of the new features and technologies with the half-ton TITAN, but is built on a unique reinforced, fully boxed, full-length ladder frame – with sturdy braking provided by a 4-wheel disc system featuring substantial rear ventilated discs with hydraulic power assist.
The new 2020 TITAN XD offers confident towing and hauling usually provided by larger, more-expensive heavy-duty trucks, while still providing the comfort and nimbleness of a light-duty pickup. TITAN XD offers higher maximum towing and payload capacities than TITAN, reflecting the fact that towing capability traditionally ranks at the top of TITAN XD buyers' purchase considerations.
For 2020, the TITAN XD lineup is simplified to a Crew Cab body with a 6.5-foot bed and 4-wheel drive – helping to focus on the heart of the TITAN XD market. Key enhancements for the new TITAN XD include additional standard horsepower and torque, unique exterior and interior styling of the SL, PRO-4X and Platinum Reserve trims, advanced connectivity technology and features, and standard Nissan Safety Shield 360 – a suite of six advanced driver-assist systems – on all grade levels.
The 2020 Nissan TITAN XD continues to be covered by America's Best Truck Warranty2 – with 5-year/100,000 mile bumper-to-bumper coverage.
A unique frame, new 9-speed transmission and 400-horsepower Endurance® V8
Every TITAN XD model is built on a unique frame and chassis (compared to the TITAN). The fully boxed, full-length ladder frame is extensively reinforced and strengthened for TITAN XD to provide added stiffness, vertical and lateral bending, and torsional rigidity. It also features an extended 151.6-inch wheelbase – about 15 inches longer than TITAN models (Crew Cab comparison), allowing for a full-size, 6.5-foot bed.
For 2020, TITAN XD's standard 5.6-liter Endurance® V8 gasoline engine is now rated at 400 horsepower and 413 lb-ft of torque (versus the previous 390 horsepower and 394 lb-ft of torque). The engine again utilizes Nissan's VVEL (Variable Valve Event & Lift) and Direct Injection Gas (DIG™) technology.
The engine is mated with a new 9-speed automatic transmission, replacing the previous 7-speed transmission. The larger final gear ratio of 4.083:1 (versus 3.692:1 for TITAN) provides more torque at the wheels in a given gear and smoother and faster acceleration. The larger range also means better coverage for optimal power on standing starts and at cruising speeds. The powertrain feel is more linear through the gears.
Braking is provided by a robust 4-wheel disc system with 14.2 x 1.5-inch front/14.4 x 1.2-inch rear ventilated discs with hydraulic power assist. The high brake fluid pressure generated by an electric pump assists brake pedal force for a confident feel.
The 2020 TITAN XD is available in 4x4 drive, with a transfer case designed to ensure maximum power distribution in every gear. It distributes torque to both ends and provides four-wheel drive when added traction is needed on snow, ice, sand, mud, dirt, water or gravel. Durable off-road performance features include Hill Start Assist and Brake Limited-Slip Differential (BLSD). PRO-4X models add standard Hill Descent Control and electronic locking rear differential.
The 2020 TITAN XD also features a new enhanced Off Road Gauge that displays the vehicle's tire angle, relative pitch and roll angles. Nissan engineers developed a new method to calculate the vehicle's orientation using accelerometer data and calculating the vehicle's G-force, without using a gyroscope. Nissan's new gauge is expected to be the most accurate (versus competition) at higher speeds.
Confident, intelligent towing
Helping TITAN XD owners take advantage of its ample towing power3 are a range of available hitches – including an integrated gooseneck hitch engineered into the frame and easily accessible in the bed. The integrated gooseneck hitch includes a plug inside the bed for even greater ease of towing.
Among the list of TITAN XD's available towing aids are an Integrated Trailer Brake Controller, Trailer Sway Control (TSC), Tow/Haul Mode with Downhill Speed Control and a Trailer Light Check system that allows one-person hook-up operation – checking turn signals, brake lights and running/clearance lights from inside the cab or with the key fob.
TITAN XD owners will have a host of tools to assist with trailer hook-ups. This includes an available RearView Monitor with Trailer Guides and Nissan's Intelligent Around View® Monitor (I-AVM)4 that provides a composite "bird's eye" view of the surrounding area from front, rear and side cameras to help with tight parking or even off-roading at low speeds. The system also includes Moving Object Detection (MOD)5, which helps alert the driver to detected moving objects around the vehicle via an on-screen notification and warning chime.
A bold, redesigned exterior – and unique "faces" of TITAN XD
The 2020 TITAN XD redesign, like the TITAN, was led by a team at Nissan Design America (NDA) in La Jolla, Calif., and follows the "Powerful Warrior" design theme. The "modern armor" design is particularly appropriate for the attitude-heavy TITAN XD with its standard 4-wheel drive and available 20-inch wheels, and two-tone over-fender treatments.
Like TITAN, unique grille designs among trim levels give the TITAN XD a higher degree of differentiation among grade levels – allowing for more owner customization straight from the factory.
The new interlocking frame grille and surround is designed to convey strength, boldness and precision while enhancing cooling performance for the 5.6-liter V8 engine. Also completely redesigned for 2020 are the front bumper and wheel designs. On PRO-4X models, the first-ever Nissan badge with "lava red" accents is featured prominently on the grille.
The TITAN XD's bold front end includes available LED headlights and "double boomerang" LED Daytime Running Lights, which add a dramatic high-tech appearance. LED fog lights are also offered. High Beam Assist, which allows drivers to leave the light stalk in high beam position indefinitely without blinding drivers, is standard on all grades and is part of the standard Nissan Safety Shield 360 technology package.
In the rear, new all-LED lighting has been added to the pickup bed, using four light sources for full surround lighting. The rear also includes new LED lights that are designed to convey the look of solid quality and rigid machine structure. The new tailgate finishers, like the grille surrounds, are customized to differentiate grade levels. Just as the grilles feature unique personalities for each trim, TITAN XD PRO-4X features a black finisher, while Platinum Reserve utilizes a Satin Chrome finisher.
There are four new TITAN XD exterior colors – Red Alert, Baja Storm, Cardinal Red Metallic (premium color) and Super Black. Carryover colors include Brilliant Silver Metallic, Gun Metallic, Super Black, Pearl White TriCoat (premium color), Glacier White and Deep Blue Pearl. Color availability is matched specifically to model grades. In addition, the Platinum Reserve grade is available in four two-tone painted over-fender treatments, while PRO-4X features standard semi-gloss dark painted over-fenders.
A commanding interior loaded with technology
Interior comfort is another leading factor in why customers choose TITAN and TITAN XD. For 2020, commanding technology and premium comfort is abound throughout the new TITAN XD interior, which features robust construction, crafted detailing and premium finishes.
TITAN XD PRO-4X, SL and Platinum Reserve models include a new Integrated Command Center with 9.0-inch WXGA touchscreen that features WXGA resolution. Like on the 2020 TITAN, it serves as the gateway to the enhanced next-generation connectivity that includes standard Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. The new internal WiFi router allows passengers to stream their favorite content (WiFi subscription required, sold separately). Up to seven devices can be connected.
The 2020 TITAN and TITAN XD offer the new Nissan Concierge, which provides owners 24-hour access to a team of professional, live assistants at the push of a button. Nissan Concierge can help with tasks such as appointment scheduling, wake up calls, restaurant reservations and personal shopping.
The next-generation NissanConnect® allows over-the-air (OTA) software updates, new safety and security features, HD Traffic and Google Places/Search6. Also available on the 2020 TITAN XD is NissanConnect Services, a suite of convenience and security features that provide assistance when owners need it most – including remote access features and emergency response services. NissanConnect Services can be accessed from inside the vehicle, on a computer, on a smartphone or smartwatch app and with Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant.
The 2020 TITAN XD offers a new, innovative flexible smartphone holder/charging system that allows drivers to keep cell phones steady and secure while driving. Also standard on every trim level is a 7.0-inch programmable driver information display, which helps ensure that customers can access meaningful vehicle information easily and clearly.
TITAN XD SL and Platinum Reserve models are available with a new Dual Panel Panoramic Moonroof, the first offered on TITAN XD and one of the largest in the segment measuring over three-feet square.
Inspiring "the emotion of a live performance," the 2020 TITAN and TITAN XD Fender Premium Audio System includes 12 speakers with an amplifier power of 485 watts through nine channels. For a more precise immersive performance, the Fender Premium Audio system incorporates Panasonic's proprietary Acoustic Motion Control™ technology, which helps reduce vibration in the individual speakers to provide an immersive and detailed sound unlike any in its class. The premium audio system is available on PRO-4X and standard on SL and Platinum Reserve TITAN XD models.
Among the 2020 TITAN XD's first-class interior accommodations are front and rear Zero Gravity seats, Nissan's innovative design that helps maximize posture positioning for enhanced comfort during long distance driving. For 2020, TITAN XD's interior also features premium seat and trim materials customized for each grade level. Interior storage has also been enhanced for the new model year, including front and rear door storage capacity and additional assist grips.
The TITAN XD PRO-4X includes a range of custom interior accents such as stain-resistance seat coverings with vinyl bolsters and PRO-4X embroidery, leather-wrapped steering wheel with unique contrasting stitching, metallic instrument panel finishers and black headliner.
Standard Nissan Safety Shield 360 with six advanced systems
The 2020 TITAN XD, like the 2020 TITAN, is a showcase for Nissan Intelligent Mobility technologies, starting with standard Nissan Safety Shield 360 – a suite of six advanced driver-assist systems. Safety Shield 360 includes Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Blind Spot Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Departure Warning, High Beam Assist and class-exclusive Rear Automatic Braking.
The new TITAN XD also features a number of other available advanced technologies – Intelligent Forward Collision Warning, Intelligent Around View Monitor, Intelligent Cruise Control, Intelligent Driver Alertness and Traffic Sign Recognition. Nissan's innovative Rear Door Alert is standard on all grade levels. The 2020 TITAN XD includes eight air bags (versus the previous six) and four seat belt pretensioners (versus the previous two).
The 2020 TITAN XD will be offered in Crew Cab body configurations, 4-wheel drive and five well-equipped grade levels – S, SV, PRO-4X, SL and Platinum Reserve.

  • Check the condition of your wipers – operating your BOSS Snowplow with poorly operating windshield wipers is asking for problems. While you’re at it, make sure you defrosting system is working on snowplow truck as well!
  • Check the vehicle’s headlights, brake lights and turn signals to ensure they are all in working order – visibility is crucial both to you and drivers around you.
  • Never venture out without an adequate fuel supply.

Check Your BOSS Plow

You’ve checked your snowplow vehicle, now make sure your BOSS Snowplow is ready to go as well:
  • Make sure that all bolts on your snowplow are tight and well fastened.
  • Look for cracked welds and hydraulic fluid leaks.
  • Make sure the plow lights and turn signals are aligned properly and are in good working order.
  • Carry a few extras – keep a BOSS Snowplow Emergency Parts Kit handy that includes extra hydraulic fluid, hydraulic hoses, a pump solenoid, extra cutting-edge bolts and a trip spring.
