Atlas Copco’s X-Air 850-290 portable air compressor is a drilling unit that is ruggedly designed to meet the needs of the demanding coal mining and water well drilling segments. The X-Air 850-290 is dual pressure – 17 bar (246psi) and 20 bar (290psi), and principally truck or excavator-mounted. It is capable of powering water well drilling approx. from 600 to 800* feet (4.5-inch class) and at a very economical cost-per-foot.
Meanwhile, in coal mining applications it can power 6.5-inch class blasthole drilling at an economical cost. Compared to its contemporary, XR1000/1100, the X-Air 850-290 is remarkably lightweight – 13%* lighter, compact – 32%* smaller, and an incredible 30%* more fuel efficient.

With an operating window that stretches from temperatures ranging from freezing up to 55oC, the X-Air 850-290 enjoys a best-in-class canopy, advanced control electronics, and easy single-sided servicing. It is powered by a six-cylinder Ashok Leyland electronic diesel engine, which at normal shaft speeds delivers 233 kW of engine power.
Tony Van Herbruggen, General Manager, Power Technique, Atlas Copco India, commented, “The X-Air 850-290 is a game changing compressor that is specifically designed to meet the needs of the demanding coal mining and water well drilling sectors.
