Doosan Bobcat India Launches Volvo Penta Powered Air Compressors


Doosan Bobcat India has chosen Volvo Penta engines to power two of its new air compressor models, both being launched at EXCON 2019, the largest construction equipment tradeshow in South Asia.

A 13-litre, 536 hp Volvo Penta D13 diesel engine is providing power to Doosan Bobcat India’s new PA536 air compressor, and an 8 litre, 320 hp Volvo Penta D8 diesel engine has been installed in its SHP750 air compressor.

Extensive Field-Tests

Volvo Penta and Doosan Bobcat India began development on both models in 2016, following thousands of hours of operation in field-tests and in different ground conditions. The lengthy research by Doosan Bobcat and Volvo teams helped fine tune a very effective and cost-effective package for intermediate and high depth drilling.






“The field-tests demonstrated that customers will benefit from the use of Doosan’s efficient air ends and cooling system, compact packaging for plug and play mounting. We have also extended service intervals and consumable renewals, which mean lower maintenance costs and higher uptime. The programmed electronic controller 8 ensures that there is no manual interference in the compressor operation, making this a strong value proposition to the customer,” says B S Srinivas, Director of Portable Power at Doosan Bobcat India.
