Combining the compressor, welder and generator into one unit reduces vehicle weight, helping to lower fuel costs and decrease wear and tear on the truck, and provides savings on service costs. Additionally, it opens up more space on the truck for hauling tools and materials.
Keep in mind that if one component in a compressor/welder/generator unit fails, the other two components are also unusable, point out IMT officials. Consequently, it is important to adhere to recommended preventative maintenance schedules.
Servicing is simplified because by having the compressor, welder and generator in one self-contained unit there is only one service point for all three components.
