PA1170P Overview

The Bobcat PA1170P delivers heavy-duty air power with adjustable pressure to fit your varied jobsite needs. Powered by the reliable CAT C13B engine, this newly redesigned towable compressor features a more compact design, an efficient airend with a wider pressure range, and best-in-class serviceability.

The PA1170P was engineered for maximum jobsite productivity with easy serviceability in mind. Large extra-wide doors and thoughtful placement of service items ensure minimal downtime during routine maintenance and on-the-job service.

The proprietary airend, custom designed for this machine, offers a highly efficient rotor profile that requires less horsepower to deliver the high-volume cfm output you need for big jobs. Yet the compact design makes it easy to maneuver around the jobsite with exceptional towability and cooling performance. It can also be mounted to a flatbed for easier transportation or long-term placement.

For specialized jobs requiring cleaner air, the PA1170P can be equipped with the patented IQ System, which adds an onboard aftercooler, a coalescing dual filtration system and an exclusive zero-discharge condensate removal system. These components work together to produce clean air that protects the tools downstream from contaminants, such as aerosol oil vapors and microscopic dust particles.

For heavy-duty jobs, rely on the Bobcat PA1170P to increase uptime and maximize your jobsite productivity.
