Chicago Pneumatic Construction Equipment has introduced the CPS 185 JD iT4 to the North American marketplace. The reliable and versatile 185 CFM portable air compressor is now available from authorized Chicago Pneumatic equipment dealers across the continent.

Equipped with a water-cooled, 49 hp, four-cylinder John Deere engine, the CPS 185 JD iT4 Steel delivers a reliable and versatile solution for running pneumatic construction tools and sand blasting.

“The CPS 185 JD can handle a variety of applications,” explains Eric Massinon, product manager for portable energy at Chicago Pneumatic. “The 185 CFM compressor provides a true 185 CFM unit.” According to Massinon, it’s not a true 185 CFM unit if it is unable to run two 90 lb breakers.

There are a number of features to increase efficiency, and decrease downtime on the jobsite engineered into every unit. Features like the rear-mount control panel for easy operation, trailer light package, adjustable-height hitch complete with jack stand and safety chains for safe transport, automatic temperature shutdowns and low oil pressure shutdown to protect the engine, and a galvaneal sheet metal enclosure to reduce compressor and engine noise all equate to a better user experience, and a more efficient operation.

“There are also a variety of options that we can integrate onto any CPS 185 JD,” explains Massinon. “like additional hose reels, an 18” extended drawbar, or even a heavy duty battery or block heater for cold climates.”

The CPS 185 JD has an operating weight of 2,375 lb, and measures 125” long, 60” wide, and 55.25” tall. The CPS 185 JD has a normal working pressure of 100 psi with a maximum unloading pressure of 125 psi, and features a 25-gallon fuel tank.
