Hand tool air compressors

At respective weights of 35.4 lbs. and 51.1 lbs., the AKHL1260E and AKHL1260EX PowerLite models hold compressed air at 500 psi. The AKHL1260E is equipped with two tanks, the AKHL1260EX five; four air-outlets come standard on both compressors, two for high pressure, two for regular 100-psi tools.

MAX Powerlite Compressors are powered by a DC-Brushless motor and have an inverter circuit that adjusts the rpm to extract maximum performance at different voltage levels. The technology allows start up in cold weather and operation under poor electric supply conditions—down to 70 volts without popping the breaker. An LED light indicator system is built in to identify performance issues, while the compressor’s easy drain lever quickly releases air and water from the tanks.
