Lincoln Electric
Air Vantage® 500
It's Three in One - Welder, Generator and Air Compressor

Product Number:  K2325-2

When you need it all, consider the rugged Air Vantage® 500 for railroad, mining, general maintenance & repair, and heavy duty construction. Plenty of air for arc gouging with up to 3/8 in. (9.5 mm) carbons, plasma cutting or almost any air tool. A powerful 500 amps at 100% duty cycle is enough for almost any stick, TIG, MIG or flux-cored welding project. And, the precision arc starting provided by Lincoln Electric Chopper Technology® and DC Touch Start TIG® will make any operator a better welder. Don’t pay extra for plenty of AC generator power – up to 20,000 watts of 3-phase and 12,000 watts of 1-phase is standard. Stainless steel roof and side panels provide added durability and corrosion-resistance. The Kubota® V3600-T watercooled diesel engine will keep you running — and working — for a long time.
