ST. LOUIS. Three new products designed for the work truck and construction markets are being showcased by Miller Electric Manufacturing Co. at the National Truck Equipment Assn.’s (NTEA) Work Truck Show here this week.
The EnPak Mechanic Series is an integrated, self-contained air compressor, hydraulic pump and generator. Installing the EnPak eliminates the need to carry a heavy PTO, yet still provides the power necessary to run air tools, hydraulic cranes and electrical equipment without turning the truck on, Miller said.
Because it operates without the need of the truck’s engine, the EnPak reduces engine hours by as much as 60% and can cut fuel costs 30%. It runs on a 27 hp diesel engine and combines a rotary screw air compressor, hydraulic pump and generator in a single unit.
The Miller Air Pak 40 is rated at 40 CFM at 100 psi with a 175 psi maximum while the Eaton variable displacement piston hydraulic pump powers a rated 3000 psi at 8.5 gpm. The generator produces 6,000 watts of power at 100% duty cycle with an additional 2,400 watts of pure sine wave EnVerter power at idle.
Miller also unveiled the Trailblazer 302 Air Pak welder, generator, and air compressor. The unit comes equipped with a battery charger and jump starter.
The Trailblazer includes 450 amp (12 volt)/350 amp (24 volt) battery jumping power, 13,000 watts of peak generator power, up to 350 amps of welding power and 26 CFM of continuous compressed air.
To extend battery life and help eliminate battery failure, the Trailblazer provides charging power (10 to 75 amp, as set by the operator) until it senses a load from the starter. The jump-starting mode is activated only when it senses a load from the starter. There is also an indicator should it detect a dead cell, poor connection or improper voltage setting.
The Trailblazer is gasoline powered and weighs 771 lbs.
For customers looking for a lightweight yet durable power option for welding, Miller has designed the Wildcat 200 Welder Generator.
The Wildcat includes Miller’s True Blue three-year warranty on the welder/generator and a three-year manufacturer warranty on a 14 hp Subaru engine. The unit weighs 345 lbs. and is fully enclosed to protect internal components.
Capable of producing 6,500 watts of peak generator power, the Wildcat can run for 12 hours using a 1/8 in. Stick electrode. It has a seven gallon gas tank.
