The PREDATAIR is the revolutionary new hydraulic air compressor engineered and manufactured by VMAC to meet the demands of the most challenging applications.


The power of information. Equipped with a remote digital LCD control unit, operators can now monitor hydraulic and compressor oil temperature, pressure, system hours and error logs, for on-the-spot analysis and troubleshooting. Work in extreme climates. Built-in freeze protection and an over-temp safety switch defend the system from severe heat and cold, extending system life.
Standby and save costs. The PREDATAIR is designed with a standby mode that helps maximize service intervals and system life. When you stop using air, the system goes into standby. When you start using air again, the system automatically restarts, generating the air you need. This saves you fuel costs, maintenance costs and wear on your hydraulic system.


Good things come in small packages. The PREDATAIR utilizes the latest in compact air compressor technology, ensuring a complete air system including cooler, compressor, and components from a 150LB (dry) package. Instantly save space and weight for tools and equipment.


Big air to get the job done fast. The rotary-screw compressor packs up to 40 or 60 CFM, enough muscle to power a diverse range of applications, from 5LB air guns to a 60LB jackhammer.
VMAC stands behind its products. In a recent dealer survey, VMAC ranks among top suppliers by offering prompt, comprehensive and professional technical and customer support. A 2-year warranty comes standard on every VMAC air system.

PREDATAIR Hydraulic Above Deck Compressor Features and Benefits

Direct Driven Rotary Screw Compressor

  • No belts to adjust or replace.
  • 100% Duty Cycle.

Smallest and Lightest in its Class

  • More space for tools and other equipment.
  • More payload available.

Integral Hydraulic Oil Cooler

  • No need for an external hydraulic cooler if you are only installing the compressor system.
  • Uses over-sized cooler to maintain low hydraulic temperatures.

Hydraulic and Compressor Oil Temperature Sensing

  • Protects the compressor from overheating.
  • Cold start protection for the hydraulic motor and cooler.
  • Prevents hydraulic oil from overheating.

Soft Start Feature

  • Reduces load placed on the hydraulic system during the compressor startup.
  • Increases compressor life.

Air Pressure Unload Circuit

  • Reduces air pressure when not using air but the system is on.
  • Reduces thermal load when the compressor is not in use.
  • Reduces fuel consumption on truck.
  • Increases compressor life.

Hydraulic Standby Mode

  • Turns off hydraulic oil to the motor when air is not being used.
  • Will automatically re-start when air is required.
  • Delay is adjustable via the remote control box.
  • Reduces thermal load when the compressor is not in use.
  • Reduces fuel consumption.

Built In One-Way Check Valve

  • No need to purchase when installing an air reservoir tank.
  • Protects the compressor system from contamination from downstream sources.

Throttle Enable Lead

  • Allows use of second throttle speed.
  • Drops truck engine back to base idle when not using air.

Above Deck Mounted

  • When properly maintained, VMAC compressors should last for the service life of your vehicle.
  • Your truck hydraulic system powers the compressor. There are no additional engines to maintain or carry additional fuel for. Again saving you time, money and energy.

Easily transferable to new service truck body.
