Chicago Pneumatic and Power Technique North America has introduced an air compressor designed for the toughest applications.

The CPS 185-100 is a durable portable compressor that is powerful enough for any job site, according to the manufacturer.

Powered with a liquid-cooled, three-cylinder Kohler diesel engine, the CPS 185-100 is built to power two 90 lb breakers, or other additional tools, and ranges up to 125 psi. The standard package includes an Xc1004 controller — an easy-to-use controller that enhances visibility of operating parameters.

Air pressure, fuel level and running hours are all displayed on screen, as well as additional measurements — like RPM, engine temperatures, oil pressure and voltage — for easy diagnosis and troubleshooting.

The Xc1004 intuitive controller is easy to operate and can display compressor and engine measurements, warnings, alarms and operational settings, routine service requirements and more.

The CPS 185 features the Redrock polyethylene canopy that comes standard and provides corrosion and UV protection against fading and discoloration — offering more durability for the most challenging conditions. The undercarriage frame offers 110% spillage free containment that protects against spills or leaks and avoids costly clean-up and damage to the environment.

Built for tough environments, the CPS 185 is a reliable choice for operating pneumatic handheld tools for demolition, construction, or on-site maintenance. Engineered for higher performance, the CPS 185 also can be used for applications like abrasive blasting, concrete blasting or stain removal.

Chicago Pneumatic will unveil the CPS 185 at the ARA Show in Orlando, Florida, in February 2023.
