Small compressors up to 57 cfm

Presenting the Swiss army knife of the portable compressor world:

Versatile, reliable and easy to transport: Our small compressors take up minimal loading space and, with their high-quality motors and extremely impact-resistant PE enclosures, are ready for anything.

  • Maximum pressures from 100 to 217 psig (Models M13 – M17)
  • The 217 psig version is ideal for trenchless laying of fiber optic cables (Model M17)
  • Also available with electric motor (E models)
  • All models are optionally available with an aftercooler to provide a supply of condensate-free compressed air.

Your advantages

  • Rapid deployment to any location:
    With the compact enclosure and a light operating weight of only approx. 200 kg, our small compressors are easy to load and take up very little space. This makes it possible to transport them with a delivery van, for example.
  • Intuitive operation:
    Kaeser places great emphasis on providing user-friendly controls. This helps to avoid costly downtime through long and steep learning curves.
  • Durability and quiet operation:
    Rotation sintered PE enclosures provide optimal noise and impact protection.


Our small compressors in detail

Keeping it simple: transport, handling, maintenance

Easy-load design

M17 – Easy-load design

The compressor can be manually lifted via four ergonomically designed hand grips, e.g. to enable loading on to a transporter.

Outstanding manoeuvrability

M13 – Outstanding manoeuvrability

  • Compact design
  • Low centre of gravity
  • Large pneumatic tyres 
  • Long, foldable push handle makes the unit easy to manoeuvre

Easy maintenance is standard

M13 – Exceptional ease-of-maintenance

Kaeser makes ease of operation and optimal accessibility of all maintenance points a top priority. This not only minimises maintenance costs, but also ensures maximum machine availability.

Optional compressed air treatment

Cool, condensate-free compressed air

Compressed air aftercooler with supporting frame for road-going portable compressors from Kaeser Kompressoren.

The M13, M15 and M17 models can also be operated with an external compressed air aftercooler. The latest generation machines are ready-equipped ex-works with:

  • 12V electrical connection to supply power for the aftercooler fan
  • Connection for return of separated condensate (in the petrol version it is evaporated via hot exhaust gases; in the electric version condensate is collected via an integrated tank)
  • Support frame with compressed air after-cooler (approx. 16 kg) or with additional filter combination (approx. 22 kg) equipped with fixed connections for compressed air, fan power supply and condensate return. All you need to do is simply connect a prepared compressor.

Drive options: petrol engines or electric motors

Petrol engines up to 217 psi

The impressive performance of the petrol engine versions is made possible thanks to their generously sized fuel tank and continuous air delivery control, which precisely matches air delivery to meet actual demand. This further reduces the fuel consumption of these already efficient machines.

  • Excellent endurance 
  • Low fuel consumption 
  • Continuous delivery control 

Electric motors up to 217 psi

MOBILAIR electric portable compressors truly come into their own in work environments where quiet and exhaust-free conditions are required. These environmentally-compatible compressors therefore elegantly avoid any restrictions that may apply to the use of combustion engines.

  • Quiet, no exhaust 
  • Ideal for indoor use 
  • With pole-reversing switch
