Equipment Details

Compact Design!

Get a 580 amp welder in a compact case! The same size as the Vantage® 400! A turbo-charged diesel engine with Lincoln Electric Chopper Technology® makes this a reality! Also, less weight than traditional 580 amp welders makes the Vantage® 580 compact design a great choice for installation on truck beds where available space and weight capacity are limited.

  • Compact Case with Stainless Steel Enclosure
    • One of the most compact 580 amp machines available. Suitable for many pickup and service trucks (subject to vehicle capacity limits).
    • Standard stainless steel roof, side panels and engine-access door deliver added protection and durability.
  • Multi-Process Welding - Separate Arc Gouge Mode
    • Select one of five process modes, including CC-stick, downhill pipe (for stick), DC Touch Start TIG®, CV-wire or new arc gouging mode which maximizes output with up to 9.5 mm carbon rods.
  • VRD Voltage Reduction Device
    • Reduced OCV in CC and CV modes for added safety.
