Lincoln Electric Updates Line of Engine-Driven Welders

Portable unit ideal for rugged outdoor welding applications

Outback® 145
Cleveland - Jobsite and outdoor welding applications require a machine that is rugged, easily portable and includes a reliable generator. Users will find these features in Lincoln Electric's new Outback® 145 engine-driven welder. This unit is specifically designed for contractors, maintenance crews, farmers and ranchers, as well as for use on service trucks where portable DC stick welding and AC generator power are needed.

The unit delivers 145 amps of smooth DC output welding for use with up to 1/8" stick electrodes on steel, stainless steel, cast iron and hardfacing projects. Its single, full-range, calibrated welding output dial makes it easy to set the best current for any maintenance, fabrication or repair project.

The Outback 145's high-capacity AC generator provides 4,750 watts peak power and 4,250 watts of continuous power for accessories such as grinders, work lights and pumps. It can also provide emergency backup power if needed. A low-cost Lincoln POWER MIG® 140C or 180C compact MIG wire welder can also be plugged into the 240V receptacle without an adapter for high-productivity wire welding.

Weighing 238 lbs., the Outback 145 includes Lincoln's exclusive Low-Lift(TM) grab bars, providing increased leverage for lifting the unit on and off truck beds and extra protection against damage.

The rugged 1-1/4"-diameter tube frame is the largest in its class and affords sturdy all-around protection. The 6.8-gallon fuel tank offers extended run times and less frequent refueling than comparable welder/generators. The tank also includes a large fill opening.

The Outback 145 features a Subaru® 10 HP Model EX30 OHC (overhead cam) gasoline engine. Features include one-pull starting, a cast iron cylinder liner for long engine life, automatic shutdown for low oil level and a three-year engine warranty. This easy-to-maintain engine requires an oil change only every 100 hours with no oil filter to replace.
