Equipment Details

Superior Choice for Pipeline Work!™

The SAE-300® HE (High Efficiency) combines a rugged design with traditional pure DC generator technology for excellent welding performance in pipe, construction and maintenance applications. Save fuel too!

  • Fuel Efficient Industrial Diesel Engines
    • 3-cylinder, water-cooled, 1800 RPM engines.
    • Big fuel savings compared to previous engines!
      • Perkins®: 13% at 300A, 20% at low idle vs. SAE-300®
      • Kubota®: 15% at 300A, 30% at low idle vs. Classic® 300 D.
    • Fuel gauge on control panel.
  • Dual Continuous Control™ of Output
    • Two continuous dials on the control panel allow for a precise setting of both voltage and current for critical pipe welding applications.
    • Adjust the arc for a snappy “digging” arc for root and hot passes on pipe with cellulosic electrode, or for a soft “buttery” arc for pipe welding with low hydrogen electrode.
  • Pure DC Generator Welding Output
    • Pipeline operators will enjoy welding with the arc produced from the rotating armature/field coil system manufactured for many years by Lincoln Electric.
  • All Copper Windings
    • Arc stability, dependability and long-life are enhanced with all-copper windings.
  • 300 Amps Output @ 60% Duty Cycle
    • Welds up to 7/32 in. (5.6 mm) Fleetweld® 5P, Fleetweld® 5P+, Pipeliner® and Excalibur® electrode.
