  • On Demand Versatility – Offers up to 600 amps (IEC rated at 525 amps) of welding current to tackle numerous welding and carbon arc gouging applications. 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.
  • Generator Output – Provides up to 20 kW of continuous three-phase power to run industrial tools such as plasma cutters, pumps, or inverter welders.
  • Integrated Air Compressor – 60 cfm @ 100 psi of compressed air powered by VMAC®
  • Patented Chopper® Technology – Experience premium arc performance with minimized spatter for stick or pipe welding as well as enhanced gouging performance that prevents the engine from stalling, resulting in smooth material removal.
  • Expanded Welding Capabilities – Utilize customized modes for stainless, aluminum, and steel as well as advanced SAW and orbital pipe modes. Features pulse welding capability for better arc control in out-of-position work and low heat input for critical welds.
  • CrossLinc® Enabled – Allows communication through a standard weld cable to enable voltage or current control at the arc without a control cable to help improve safety, quality, and productivity with less trips to the power source and reduced jobsite clutter. Built-in True Voltage Technology™ (TVT) compensates for voltage drop to further improve operations.
  • Reliable Operations – Engineered tough and field proven for ruggedness and durability to meet the most challenging job site needs and harshest environments.
  • Industrial Diesel Engine – Powered by a 65.7 hp, turbocharged Deutz® diesel engine. Runs smooth and quiet while meeting EPA Tier 4 Final compliance
  • Rent-Ready Package – Product comes in one preassembled package from the factory. Ready-Pak® 1 option includes the welder, trailer, fender and light kit, cable rack, welding cables, ground clamps, and electrode holder.
