Sullair Mid-Range Series

Rental, a nationally recognized magazine serving rental equipment professionals, has selected the Sullair Mid-Range Series of Tier 4 Final portable air compressors as one of its 2021 Editor’s Choice Awards winners.

The 2021 Rental Editor’s Choice Awards represent the equipment rental industry’s best products gaining interest from end-users and rental professionals alike. The Mid-Range Series was chosen by Rental’s editorial team based on several factors including innovation, utility for the rental market, and audience engagement online at

“The rental industry is getting back on track after a tough 2020, and this year’s winning products represent a significant step forward in that progress, showcasing top-notch innovation, reliability, and quality from some of the industry’s leading manufacturers,” says Rental Editor Alexis Sheprak. “These products not only exhibit cutting-edge features but also offer innovative solutions to some of today’s most common problems, garnering interest from rental professionals on”

Introduced to the market in February 2021, the Sullair Mid-Range Series ushered in a new era for Sullair portable air compressors. The series’ two offerings include the 800HH/900H model delivering 800–900 cfm at 150–200 psi and the 920H/1100 model delivering 920–1100 cfm at 100–150 psi.

“When we introduced the Mid-Range Series, we sought to raise the bar for diesel-driven portable air compressors,” said Jerel Cole, Senior Product Manager at Sullair. “The Rental Editor’s Choice Award is a testament to our team’s efforts to continue to create value and efficiency for our customers. Rental companies, specifically, benefit from the Mid-Range Series’ flexibility. It means one compressor covers a wide range of applications, thus maximizing ROI and increasing utilization rates.”

The Mid-Range Series is the first to incorporate electronic spiral valve technology, which helps maximize fuel efficiency and extend runtimes by matching air supply to demand. It is also the first Sullair portable compressor to feature the proven 23-Series variable capacity air end. Customers have their choice of two diesel engine options: a Caterpillar 7.1L or Perkins 1206J. The Cat 7.1L diesel engine replaces the previous generation’s 9-liter engine to help provide best-in-class fuel efficiency. The smaller-sized engine reduces the compressor’s overall weight, making towing and maneuverability easier and minimizing impacts to the environment.

This flexibility allows the Mid-Range Series to cover the jobs of up to nine compressors, making it ideal for applications including pipeline work, construction, abrasive blasting, fiber optics installation, shipyards, and more.

The editorial teams from Rental and compiled website views from products featured online at and then considered those that received the most interest against a set of criteria to determine the winners. The result is the 2021 Editor’s Choice Awards, a listing of the industry’s favored products. Award recipients, including Sullair, will be featured in the August/September 2021 issue of Rental magazine and at

Sullair previously won a Rental Editor’s Choice Award in 2017, when the 1600H Tier 4 Final portable air compressor was honored.
