  • Simple to operate – Select one of five Process Modes, including CC-Stick, CC-Downhill Pipe, CC-Gouging, Touch-Start™ TIG or CV Wire, and then dial in the desired output.
  • Optimised CC-Stick mode – CC-Stick mode is optimised for general purpose and E7018 low hydrogen electrodes.
  • Arc control adjustment – Produces a soft, buttery arc or a more forceful, digging arc to suit your requirements.
  • Touch-Start DC TIG welding – Provides easy arc starting that avoids tungsten contamination and the use of high frequency.
  • 14.5kW of 50Hz auxiliary power – Able to power up additional inverter power sources to give you up to three stick electrode welding arcs for higher productivity. 240V and 415V IP66 rated outlets.
  • Digital Volt/Amp meters – Built-in preset function makes it easy to precisely set your procedures.
  • Arc gouging – Arc gouging with up to 9.5mm carbons. With new carbon arc gouging waveform delivers improved gouging performance including VRD.
  • Full instrumentation – Fuel, oil pressure, engine temperature gauges and hour meter keep you on top of monitoring engine performance.
  • Perkins® 404D-22T Turbo diesel engine – 37.2 horsepower @ 1500rpm, liquid-cooled, 4 cylinder Perkins® engine, includes automatic engine idler for greater fuel economy and reduced noise.
  • VRD Device – Integrated voltage reduction device (VRD) offers additional protection for the operator. The VRD reducing the OCV to a safer <20 volts, increasing operator safety when welding is performed in environments with increased hazard of electric shock.
