The Vantage® 566X is a powerful welder/generator that offers up to 600 amps of welding output and 20 kW of auxiliary power. With dependability in mind, the machine has been designed and manufactured to conquer the toughest jobs. The resilient Vantage 566X can handle a wide array of tasks such as heavy-duty carbon arc gouging, large submerged arc wires, and advanced pulse welding. Now better than over, the machine features CrossLinc® Technology to provide welders with greater control at the arc to help improve safety, productivity, and quality. Select this machine to tackle your next task!
- Rugged and Reliable Powerhouse – 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.
- 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® 3 option includes the welder, trailer, fender and light kit, and cable rack.
