The Sullair 185A

Built specifically for harsh Australian conditions, the 185A is ready for the highway, the worksite, or the farm.

The Australian agricultural industry depends on heavy duty, reliable equipment and Sullair’s 185A is all that and more. Known as ‘the workhorse of Sullair’s elite mobile fleet’, the 185A is fully optimised and ready to hit the road. An upgrade on the 185, the new Sullair 185A is more portable and compact than ever before. Now with greater fuel efficiency giving it a longer running time, this machine offers the same output and reliability, and a longer period of uninterrupted operation. This means no interruptions in the middle of an average work day to go back and refuel, ensuring high productivity and efficiency – particularly important during harvesting season.

The185A is the jack of all trades and can be commonly seen on construction sites, out on the farm and is a common portable offering in hire and rental. The lightest and mightiest portable compressor of its kind, the 185A is built specifically for harsh Australian conditions and is easier to tow, service and control – whatever the conditions. It’s also approved for use on Australian highways, sites, and country roads.

Who am I? I’m the 185A.

I’m used in the agriculture, hire and rental, sand-blasting and coating, construction and demolition industries. I offer seamless portability, have interior access, and digital controls, along with a state-of-the-art CAT engine. I’m oil-injected and I can deliver compressed air with the same safe, reliable, and efficient output as ever before. Best of all, I have a much longer running time than I used to – I can go all day without needing to be refuelled. I have a fully-bunded, durable sleek shell and let’s just say I am ready for anything. If you keep up my care and maintenance, I may even outlast you.
