Miller Introduces EnPak™ Mechanic Series, the World's Only Truck-Integrated, Self-Contained Air Compressor, Hydraulic Pump and Generator

Miller's EnPak™ Mechanic Series eliminates the need for the PTO commonly found in mechanics' trucks and provides mechanics with the power needed to run air tools, hydraulic cranes and electrical equipment—all with the truck turned off.

--Miller Electric Mfg. Co. introduced EnPak™ Mechanic Series—the world's only truck-integrated, diesel engine-driven air compressor, generator and hydraulic pump—at the National Truck Equipment Association's (NTEA) 2009 Work Truck Show in Chicago. EnPak's 27-HP Kubota diesel engine eliminates the need for a PTO and integrates seamlessly into its electrical and fuel systems, allowing mechanics to run all their tools with the truck turned off. This lowers fuel costs up to 30 percent, reduces truck engine hours up to 60 percent, lowers truck noise by as much as 10 dB and substantially reduces exhaust fumes in the work area.


EnPak's variable speed rotary screw air compressor, Miller's Air Pak™ 40, offers a rated 40 CFM at 100 PSI with a 175 PSI maximum that allows mechanics to use air tools without having to stop working to wait for pressure to build. Its Eaton variable displacement piston hydraulic pump powers a rated 3000 PSI at 8.5 GPM (up to 20 GPM maximum) and offers smooth, fast and accurate crane operation. And 6,000 watts of generator power at 100 percent duty cycle plus an additional 2,400 watts of pure sine wave EnVerter™ power at idle is available to run electrical tools including welders, lights and laptops used for equipment diagnostics.

Customer Quotes
"The best feature of the EnPak is that my truck no longer has to idle on the jobsite to allow me to run my tools. With the EnPak running on its own, I have less fuel usage and less hours being put on my truck. I also like that the air compressor gives me air on demand. I can run my big, heavy air guns and not have to wait for air to build up like the old system. It's very productive."
—Carlos Pineda, heavy equipment service technician, Peterson Tractor Company (CAT)


"The EnPak lets me use both air and hydraulics at the same time without slowing down. Sometimes I need to use my crane to support a piece while I'm using my impact gun to remove fasteners and that all comes into play when you are disassembling a large machine."
—Carlos Pineda, heavy equipment service technician, Peterson Tractor Company (CAT)


Miller Product Manager Quotes
"EnPak allows mechanics to work more efficiently while reducing many of the high-cost elements of a mechanic's truck: fuel use and engine wear. Eliminating the PTO and integrating EnPak directly into the truck's electrical and fuel systems reduces fuel use by as much as 30 percent and truck engine hours by as much as 60 percent. The reduced sound levels and exhaust also create a more operator-friendly environment for the mechanic who spends all day working behind the truck."
—Rick Beeson, director of business development, Power Products Group, Miller Electric Mfg. Co.


"We saw an industry demand for an all-in-one air compressor, hydraulic pump and generator that could be run with the truck turned off—that's what EnPak provides. Fleet managers appreciate its cost savings and mechanics like that it allows them to work without worrying about the output from the truck's engine and PTO. The fact that it is a self-contained, purpose-built machine with components from Miller, Kubota and Eaton makes it a reliable and cost saving alternative to PTO systems."
—Rick Beeson, director of business development, Power Products Group, Miller Electric Mfg. Co.
