Applied to launch its Varimount 120 PTO air compressor at the National Ploughing Championships

County Offaly based designer and manufacturer of the world’s number one PTO compressor, Applied Concepts Ltd., is set to launch its Varimount 120 at the upcoming National Ploughing Championships on 19 September 2023. And they've chosen Father Phil – father of popular agri influencer, Farmer Phil – to host the launch.

The latest addition to Applied’s PTO compressor family builds on the same features and functions that have made the Varimount 350 the benchmark in PTO driven compressors. With a guaranteed output of 120 CFM, the Varimount 120 is ideally suited to a range of agricultural, commercial, construction, and industrial applications like blowing down equipment, powering a blasting machine, or jetting cable into a pre-installed duct.

The air power you need, when you need it!

“When we set out to design the Varimount 120, we wanted to create a PTO Compressor that delivers the same level of reliability, versatility, and durability offered by the Varimount 350 without requiring the same horse power and with an emphasis on affordability,” explains Mark Clendennen, CEO of Applied Concepts Ltd.

“Everything about the Varimount 120 is informed by our customers’ feedback. They wanted an equally robust, but more compact, lightweight version of the Applied Varimount 350 that can run off smaller model tractors and the Varimount 120 is exactly that. We’re very conscious of the economic burdens facing our customers and our role in engineering machinery geared to help them cut their running costs while boosting productivity and efficiency.”

“We felt the demand warranted investing in the development of a PTO compressor that delivers the air power to tackle everyday agricultural, commercial, construction, and industrial tasks at a price point that fits our customers’ budgets, essentially a little brother to the Varimount 350.”

“It’s a project that has been two years in the making and we’re excited that Father Phil will be hosting the launch of the Varimount 120 and equally thrilled that the launch coincides with the National Ploughing Championships, arguably the highlight event of the agri industry calendar,” continues Mr. Clendennen.

Following in the footsteps of the world’s number one PTO Compressor

The Varimount 120 follows in the footsteps of the Varimount 350, the world’s leading PTO compressor. The brainchild of Applied’s expert mechanical and product design engineers, it is designed and manufactured at Applied’s state-of-the-art facility in Birr, Co. Offaly. Over one thousand hours of field testing have proven it tough enough to surpass customers’ expectations in a range of applications, even in the harshest of outdoor environments.

“Our customers deserve a compressor that can handle anything they throw at it. That’s why we’ve checked and rechecked every element to ensure it lives up to the same attention to detail and exceptional manufacturing standards they’ve come to associate with the Applied name,” adds Mr. Clendennen.

Like the Varimount 350, the Varimount 120 can be quickly and easily mounted onto the rear or front linkage of any tractor. What’s more, the Varimount 120 shares the tractor’s engine. This two-for-one design means diesel emissions are automatically halved, making it better for customers and better for the environment. Plus, its compact size makes the Varimount 120 suited to manoeuvring in tight spaces without adding unnecessary extra weight.

“Every aspect of the Varimount 120 is engineered to ease our customer’s workload while eliminating the challenges and potential hazards of towing a standard mobile compressor. From its Pinnacle Air End and patented pneumatic controls to its Combi-Cooler and premium quality finish, the emphasis is on maximised performance and hassle-free maintenance, making the portable air power our customers need more attainable and affordable.”

“We look forward to showcasing the Varimount 120 at the 2023 NPA Exhibition. And we’re proud to have Father Phil on board to launch the latest addition to our PTO compressor family because he so perfectly represents the values that make Applied a world leader – innovation, tenacity, and a commitment to designing products that put our customers’ needs first. Come join us at the opening of the National Ploughing Championships and take advantage of our special introductory price and other available offers,” concludes Mr. Clendennen.
