Its unique auto engine off and restart smart technology, as well as its auto variable throttle control (based on air demand to minimize fuel consumption and noise) are additional features only offered by Vanair. This unit features a Tier 4 certified diesel Kubota engine.  "We are extremely excited about the new designs of our Viper Series…we’ve added some amazing features. Getting feedback from our customers, we have added the optional running gear that features independent torsion axle suspension and heavy duty construction.
