Product Highlights

Multifunction Machine

  • Welder – IEC rated at 575 amps of welding current to tackle numerous welding and carbon arc gouging applications
  • Generator – 20 kW of continuous three phase power to run industrial tools such as plasma cutters, pumps, or inverter welders
  • Air Compressor – 60 cfm @ 100 psi of compressed air powered by VMAC®

CrossLinc® Enabled¹

  • Allows communication through a standard weld cable to enable voltage or current control at the arc without a control cable
  • Helps to improve safety, quality, and productivity with less trips to the power source and reduced jobsite clutter
  • Utilizes True Voltage Technology™ (TVT) to compensate for voltage drop to further improve operations

Multi-Process Welding

  • Select one of five basic process modes including CC-Stick, Downhill Pipe, DC Touch Start TIG®, CV-Wire, or Arc Gouging mode, which maximizes output for up to 3/8 in. (9.5 mm) carbon rods

Advanced Arc Performance

  • Expanded welding capabilities with customized modes for stainless, aluminum, and steel as well as advanced SAW and orbital pipe modes²
  • Pulse welding capability for better arc control in out-of-position work and low heat input for critical welds²
  • Enhanced gouging performance prevents the engine from stalling, resulting in smooth material removal
  • Minimized spatter for stick or pipe welding

Reliable Operations

  • Lab tested, field proven ruggedness and durability
  • Engineered for outdoor use in the harshest environments
  • Encapsulated GFCIs, stainless steel paneling, and potted PC boards for added protection and inceased reliability

Industrial Diesel Engine

  • 4 cylinder, 65.7 hp, turbocharged Deutz® diesel engine runs smooth and quiet
  • Excellent cold-weather starting and high altitude operation
  • Standard engine gauges allow you to monitor performance at a glance
  • Tier 4 Final Compliant to deliver a 90% reduction in particulate and nitrous oxide emissions
  • 25 gal. (94.6 L) fuel tank for longer running time

(1) Requires CrossLinc enabled wire feeder or CrossLinc remote
(2) Requires ArcLink Communications accessory
