At Applied we know it’s more powerful to have our customers do the talking for us. Here’s what they say about the Applied Varimount 350 PTO Compressor.
“I’m using the Varimount for my umbilical slurry system – in my opinion I’ve never seen a compressor blow out slurry lines like it. I had been using a farmer’s old compressor and that’s how I realised how good the Applied compressor was. It's handy that it can be used front or rear of the tractor, but I always use it on the front.
The build quality is very good and I love the powder coated finish. I found it when I was browsing online and I contacted Applied directly. They asked me to recommend a dealership in my area and I told them about Gordons/James Gordon Ltd. And now Gordon’s are the Scottish dealership for the Varimount 350!”

“I bought the Varimount because it’s robust and strong and the output is extremely high. What’s very handy is, I can use it on the front of the tractor – in fact, 9 out of 10 times we use it on the front of the tractor. And in the summer, when we’re not using it for cleaning slurry lines, we have it left in the yard, so we can drive the tractor up to it and we’re ready to go. We also use it when it’s stationary, for blowing-out balers and harvesters – it’s a very efficient machine”
“We use the Varimount to clean out umbilical slurry lines. For us, the biggest advantage is the increased capacity. Delivering a powerful 350 CFM, the output is way ahead of any compressor we’ve used in the past. On occasion, we’d have 2000 metres of pipe out, so we need all the power we can get. We looked at a few different compressors, but were impressed with Varimount’s rugged, simple design and the fact that there were no electronics. You can tell it’s built to last”.
“It’s a super compressor there’s no doubt about it – great force to it – a very strong and compact machine. In our business, I’m surrounded by machinery, and my attraction to the Varimount was that it was tractor-mounted. With other compressors I’d have to tow them behind me around the wind farms – not ideal. Also, the fact that it can be mounted on the front of the tractor means the back of the tractor is free to use, with no unnecessary hitching and unhitching.
The Lisagallon Group, we’re cable installation specialists – the way it works is; we install a pilot rope into a duct which is blown in by the compressor. Given you’d already have a tractor, the cost of an equivalent machine that would do this job would be at least 3 times the cost of the Varimount. After I bought the compressor, there was no day where I’d pick up the phone to Applied with a query, where one of the lads wouldn’t get back to me immediately”.
