Lincoln Electric introduces the Outback 185 engine-driven welder, designed for portability as a DC stick welder and AC power generator. Suited for service truck operators, maintenance crews, farmers, ranchers and contractors, the unit's Low-Lift grab bars provide increased leverage for lifting the unit on and off truck beds. The Outback 185's engine control panels are accessible from the front, allowing users to start up, turn off and adjust output on truck-mounted units.

The unit provides a smooth DC welding output of up to 185 amps for welding steel, stainless steel or cast iron, as well as hardfacing projects because of its ability to operate up to 5/32-inch stick electrode. The AC generator provides 5,700 watts of peak power and 5,200 watts of continuous power, allowing the user to operate several tools, such as lights, a pump or a grinder.

“The most important thing to remember about the Outback 185 is that it is easier for any operator to transport with the Low-Lift grab bars and use in any work environment due to its rugged durability, easy access controls and capacity to weld with popular 1/8 and 5/32 stick electrode sizes,” says Eric Snyder, engine-driven welders product manager for Lincoln Electric. “The large fuel tank — 6.8 gallons — allows for extended run times and less frequent re-fueling during onsite jobs.”
