When you’ve been in business for more than 125 years, like Lincoln Electric, that’s when you know you’re doing things right by the customer. And it all starts with picking the best parts and components for each and every one of their machines—including their newest welder/generator, the Vantage 441X.
Fitted with a Perkins® 404F-E22T, the new Vantage 441X boasts an IEC welding output rating of 400 amps at 43 volts with a 100 percent duty cycle and up to 17 kW of auxiliary output to power industrial tools or another inverter welder. Suited for pipeline, power generation, shipbuilding, structural, and maintenance and repair industries, operators can take comfort knowing the Perkins powered Vantage 441X has been lab and field-tested in some of the harshest environments, including cold weather and high altitudes.
The choice to use Perkins engines in the Vantage 441X was an easy one for Lincoln. Many of their products, including the Classic® and SAE® lines, are powered by Perkins engines and have been for many years.
“The power source of any machine is one of the most important—if not the most important—component of a machine. We chose Perkins to power the new Vantage 441X because we can rely on the quality of their engines, as well as their global distributor and parts networks. So no matter where in the world one of our machines are located, we know Perkins support is close by,” said Nicholas Winarski, product manager – Industrial Engine Drives.
