As a service technician at Chicago Pneumatic, I’m always on the road, meeting new people. I will never forget the day I delivered a new CPVSD 20-35 to Martin’s Automotive Bodyshop. As soon as I walked through the door, I knew I was in a special place. Martin himself was a true gentleman and a master of paintwork. You could tell he had thought of everything, from the layout of the workshop to the right ventilation and temperature for everything to work efficiently. He needs to produce immaculate work every time and the air quality from the compressor is critical.
The CPVSD 20-35 has a variable speed drive that adjusts pressure to demand. This saves a lot of energy and he knew it would be good for the environment and his bottom line. The compressor is very compact and fits neatly into its allocated space, leaving plenty of access room for the workers who were busy painting and sanding. For such a small workshop, it’s incredibly organized. Martin believes in protecting his workers – he had deliberately chosen a machine with new elements and deep sound insulation. The effect was impressive – despite the non-stop activity in the garage, everyone obviously loved being there. It may be the most peaceful place I’ve ever been! I have always been fascinated by vintage cars and have done a couple of restoration projects myself as a hobby. It was a pleasure to chat to Martin, to make sure everything is set up exactly as he needed it and reassure him that we’re on hand if he has any questions. In the meantime, I have added another project to the collection in my garage so I may just give him a call. At Chicago Pneumatic, it’s not just what we do. It’s who we are.
