You will value the superior arc performance delivered by exclusive Lincoln Chopper TechnologyTM.

You will also appreciate VRDTM (Voltage Reduction DeviceTM), which reduces OCV (open circuit voltage) in the CC-Stick weld mode for added safety.

These models effectively generate high auxiliary power on 3-phase or 1-phase AC to power your lights, grinders, power tools, Inverters, etc...

Last but not least, it is housed in a rugged, low maintenance stainless steel enclosure and loaded with many innovative service features.
