AG176

AG176 on Deluxe braked trailer with optional hose reel (mounted) and spare tyre as standard

The Bruder AG176 is by far our most popular compressor for blowing down headers, balers, bins and other harvest equipment to reduce fire risk and remove built-up debris.

Bruder Kompressor has been developed in response to the growing need for a dependable, tough and practical machine for use in Australia’s harsh agricultural environment.

Compact yet powerful, the standard size AG176 Kubota-driven rotary screw compressor pumps out 176 cubic feet per minute – the ideal flow rate for effective cleaning and machinery blowdown. With a unique cooling system and filters designed for hot and dusty conditions, the Bruder AG176 thrives in high ambient temperatures, ensuring reliability during long, hot days in the field.
