Jenny Products Inc., a long-time manufacturer of portable and stationary compressors, offers its line of K-series gas-powered wheeled-portable compressors. Four models within the series all boast 5.5-hp (4.1 kW) Honda GX engines.

Operating on either a recoil or electric start, the K-series single stage compressors deliver 8.9 cfm (.25 cu m) at 100 psi or 8.6 cfm (.24 cu m) at 125 psi for quick recovery.

The K-series features the “K” pump, a heavy-duty, single-stage cast-iron compressor pump. The compressors are available in four air tank configurations: 8- and 15-gal. (30 and 57 L) air tanks, which are low-profile, powder-coated twin-tank receivers, and 17- and 30-gal. (64 and 113 L) air tanks, which are powder coated and ASME certified.

Lifting handles integrated into opposite ends of the compressors’ frames ensure the power gets where it is needed on the job site, and pneumatic tires further enhance the K-series’ portability. The 17- and 30-gal. air tanks come standard with two tires, while the 8- and 15-gal. tanks offer the options of one or two tires.

K-series compressors come with numerous standard features developed to ensure that the machines remain operational and require little maintenance. Each compressor is belt driven with a large flywheel for easy start-ups and extra cooling, and a directional air shroud helps further reduce pump temperatures. Special unloading valves on the compressors also assist in engine starting.

In addition, the units come equipped with a totally enclosed heavy-duty belt guard, anti-vibration feet for smoother operation, a large canister intake filter with replaceable elements, manual tank drains, a stainless-steel braided discharge hose, a pressure release safety valve and tank, regulator and outlet pressure safety gauges.

Each unit is filled with Jenny “Ultimate Blue” synthetic compressor-pump oil for its splash lubricating system, ensuring complete oil coverage on the pistons, crankshaft, bearings, rings and cylinders.

The K-series single stage compressors also come with an optional oil-sight glass, lubricator and air-line filter. Other engine and pressure options are available upon request.
