Bostitch 200PSI Oil Free compressors
New Bostitch High Efficiency, Oil-Free Compressors
Bostitch recently announced the addition of two new high efficiency oil-free compressors – models CAP1645-OF and CAP1615-OF.
Each compressor is oil-free and boasts a 200 PSI max / 15 amp operating system while emitting lower lower noise levels than compressors with traditional induction motors.
An induction motor is an AC motor where power is supplied to the rotor by means of electromagnetic induction, rather than a commutator. We often see these types motors used in industrial drives because they are rugged and have no brushes.
The most impressive feature for me is that they both deliver up to 5.0 SCFM at 90 PSI, which allows for quick air recovery time, which will allow you to easily operate two if not three nailers.
Bostitch Compressor Model CAP1645-OF:
This compressor is designed for framing, roofing and trim work.
The CAP1645-OF Electric Wheeled Portable Compressor features a 4.5 gallon tank. A well designed roll cage design and embedded console panel, ensure that the vital componets do not sustain damage onthe jobsite.
10” non-flat wheels and pull handle make it easier to move around and the carry handle acts as a lift point or allows you to easily position the unit to its vertical stand position for storage or transport.
The CAP1615-OF is a compact vertical tank design, is easily moved or stored and was was designed for stationary job site or workshop applications including workshop, automotive and production applications.
Weighing only 92 pounds, its 15 gallon tank capacity allows for multiple nailers to be run at one time.
Wide track semi-pneumatic wheels provide stability and mobility combined with a sturdy robust handle which doubles as a hose wrap.
The Bostitch compressor CAP1645-OF Electric Wheeled Portable Compressor will sell for approximately $349 this June 2012.
• The Bostitch compressor CAP1615-OF Workshop Compressor will sell for approximately $369 this June 2012.
