Heading to the Toowoomba FarmFest next week? The CAPS Australia team are setting up to have another great exhibition at FarmFest, offering a bunch of exclusive deals. We spoke with Antony Monrad, Branch Manager at CAPS Brisbane, to find out what you can expect to see at their stall this year.
Known as the largest independent distributor of compressed air and power generator products in Australia, CAPS will be exhibiting a full range of quality compressor and generator gear throughout the week.
“The bulk of our stand will be Airman compressors and generators. Most of the guys know the brand and know what they’re after, they generally come in and buy them [straight off the stand], but we can start [the compressors and generators] up and give anyone run down on why they’re the market leader.”
CAPS will be running an exclusive FarmFest special on their Airman, Kohler, Ingersoll Rand and CAPS branded equipment for anyone who visits their stall during the week. If you happen to be in the market for a new generator, we recommend checking out their stand- there’s a good chance you’ll score a great deal!
“As per every year, we’re running show specials that are especially for FarmFest. [For anyone who visits the stand] we’ve got show special pricing, we can take orders and secure units on the spot.”
For the team at CAPS , Airman equipment has proven to be a popular item, particularly in rural communities with their reliability, so if you’re planning to take advantage of their FarmFest offer, it’s best to get there early and secure a unit to avoid waiting (if stock runs out).
On top of that, it’s useful to know that CAPS also provide nationwide customer service solutions for their equipment. With 14 branches nationwide, it’s unlikely you’ll struggle to get a part or fix, simply because of their sheer number of branches around Australia. Antony discussed this more in our interview:
“We have a 24/7 national breakdown service and we’re in every major city in the country. We don’t only sell [compressors and generators] we service them and stock parts.
AIRMAN are extremely high quality Japanese built units running Japanese diesels engines providing the reliability required in the harsh and remote Australian conditions. With most parts carried in stock nationally we have your back, country-wide 24/7.”

If this is your first time at FarmFest, expect a tonne of freebies up for grabs throughout the Festival (especially at the Machines4U Stand, N/32A) and with exclusive offers like the ones from CAPS, saving a bit of cash on gear is always a great win.
Overall, the CAPS team have proved to be a popular yearly attendee at the festival and as Antony happily explained “every year, rain, hail or shine, we’re always there supporting rural Australia”. During the festival week, you can find CAPS at stand G23.
