Industry’s first Tier 4 Final air compressors

Doosan Portable Power is introducing the industry’s first Tier 4 Final air compressors in the form of its most widely used models - the P185 and C185. With 100 psi at 185 cfm, the P185 and C185 meet the needs of a variety of applications, from powering handheld air tools, to cable laying and pipeline testing.

After extensive testing and review, Doosan Portable Power selected a 49 horsepower Deutz D2.9 L4 electronic engine with DOC-only after-treatment to power the C185 and P185. With the new engine at the helm, the P185 and C185 deliver nine and seven hours’ runtime at 100 percent load respectively.

A new control panel equipped with an LED backlit display allows operators to easily view multiple machine parameters, including ambient temperature, engine oil pressure, percent engine load and airend temperature. The panel includes a user-friendly push-button start, and simple switch functions for stop and service air, helping users operate the machine as efficiently as possible, and providing time to focus on other jobsite needs.

With more available options than any model in the industry, the P185 can be customized to best meet any jobsite need. Durability is offered via the models’ galvanneal steel enclosure which prevents rust and corrosion, a fold-up A-frame drawbar with heavy duty chains and hooks for easy vehicle attachment and towing stability, and heavy-duty running gear that lessens shock transfer to internal components in transport. The model also includes the industry’s largest tool box for quick, convenient storage.
