For the past 12 years, 5 XAS 77 Atlas Copco compressors have been a valuable part of Espinosa’s fleet. Their positive experience with regards to reliability and service set the standard for the replacement order. They were looking for the same quality and user-friendliness. The new 8 Series range showed Atlas Copco continued to innovate after releasing the 7 series. The HardHat PE hood stood the test of time.

Next, the undercarriage is standard 110% containment spillage free, made from a single sheet and with a 3 layer anti-corrosion protection (C3 certified).
