Campbell Hausfeld brings heavy-duty DC stick welding capacity and 120-volt, 60 Hz auxiliary power to any location with
the DC/150 (GW4150) and DC/200 (GW4200), two engine-drive welder/generators that utilize inverter technology to reduce weight.
Unlike traditional welder/generators that feature large windings and often weigh more than 500 pounds, inverters credit their light weight and high-amperage welding power to a small alternator and circuit boards.
"We want our customers to have the most portable metalworking shop," explained Jim Nutter, product manager for welders at Campbell Hausfeld. "We've furthered our inverter technology capabilities to develop two commercial models that are easy to transport while providing amazing DC welding power for demanding jobs, allowing our customers to efficiently move from one project to the next without using a 1-ton truck."
The new welder/generators include:
DC/150 (GW4150)-The 95-pound DC/150 provides serious welding power output from 40 to150 DC amps to handle jobs that range from delicate to extreme. The DC/150 uses a fuel-efficient 9 HP Robin Subaru engine for easy start-up, l ow emissions and quiet operation. It also features a carry handle. The suggested retail price is $1,299.
DC/200 (GW4200)-The DC/200 is powered by an 11.5 HP Robin Subaru engine and provides welding power output from 35 to 200 DC amps to tackle a wide array of welding jobs. A heavy-duty carry frame allows for easy portability of the 135-pound unit. It has a suggested retail price of $1,499.
Both the DC/150 and DC/200 feature a 100 percent duty cycle and an infinite output adjustment control that allows users to dial-in the exact DC amperage output for exact welding precision. They can accommodate projects that require the need to weld with 1/16" to 5/32" rods of various fluxes and feature external dinse connectors that allow for straight or reverse polarity welding to control penetration and allow for use of more exotic flux electrodes. Auxiliary power is DC pulse output, suitable to run power hand tools or incandescent lights to provide a complete metalworking shop in a small package.
