Lincoln Electric has improved on its Ranger family of engine-driven welders with new, more powerful engines. The company reports that with an additional one to five horsepower on most engines, depending on the model, these updated Rangers feature higher generator power ratings and more reserve engine power for welding. The Ranger line, featuring 200 to 300 amps of welding and 9,000 to 11,000 watts of AC generator power capabilities, is ideal for general contractors, maintenance teams, farmers and homeowners in a variety of light construction, maintenance and repair applications. The Rangers deliver a high-output, smooth arc for a variety of welding processes, including stick, TIG, MIG, flux-cored and pipe welding, as well as arc gouging. The Ranger 10,000, 3-Phase, and GXT offer professional AC and DC stick welding, while the Ranger 250, 250 LPG, 305G and 305D offer multiprocess arc performance.
