Equipped with a 250 hp, 6-cylinder John Deere T4F engine, the CPS 850 compressor weighs 7,980 lbs., and measures 203-inches long, 80-inches wide, and 86-inches tall. With an easily adjustable working pressure between 58 - 150 psi, the compressor offers a maximum unloading pressure of 175 psi, and features an 88-gallon fuel tank that consumes fuel at 10.7 gallons per hour.  

“While this machine is incredibly efficient, it is also one of the biggest, most powerful portable compressors offered in the Chicago Pneumatic lineup,” said Eric Massinon, business development manager at Chicago Pneumatic. The CPS 850 has the ability to reach 750 to 850 CFM in actual free air delivery, depending on the pressure needed for the application.

Large easy-to-open doors provide quick access to the machine’s components, including the air end, engine and electrical components. The compressor features 100 percent fluid containment that is plumbed to the outside for easy access. The machine has a 500-hour service interval on the engine and 1,000 hours on the compressor.

For ease of operation, the compressor has an intuitive, color LCD screen controller that displays all the necessary information. The controller lets users easily program and view multiple parameters of the compressor and engine. Once the regulator is set to the required pressure, the controller automatically adjusts the output to deliver the flow, while still maintaining the best fuel efficiency.
