PA1600VP Overview

The Bobcat PA1600VP delivers heavy-duty air power that can be easily adjusted to fit your varied jobsite needs. Powered by your choice of engine – Cummins or CAT – this newly redesigned towable compressor features a compact footprint, an efficient airend with wider flow and pressure ranges, as well as best-in-class serviceability.

The PA1600VP was engineered for maximum jobsite productivity. Extra-wide doors and thoughtful placement of service items ensure minimal downtime during routine scheduled maintenance or on-the-job fixes. For jobs that include different applications, you can easily switch between two adjustable pressure settings – 150 or 200 psi – directly from the control panel.

Dual pressure technology from Bobcat gives you the versatile air power you need to maximize productivity on the jobsite. With the HI/LOW options on the control panel, you can easily choose between the two adjustable airflow and air pressure combinations to power multiple applications, eliminating the need for multiple compressors.

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.

For specialized jobs requiring cleaner air, the PA1600VP 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 PA1600VP to deliver versatile air power to maximize your jobsite productivity.
