The Frontier 400X features a state-of-the-art, industrial-grade user interface (UI) system that allows operators to easily set up the machine, including access to arc controls, productivity metrics and maintenance reminders, all while gloved. Beneficial for both rental companies and rental customers is the Frontier 400X’s authorised use capability which enables PIN-only access that locks out unauthorised individuals. This prevents other contractors from putting extra hours on the machine and burning through fuel.
The Frontier 400X’s welding quality, productivity and safety are amplified through CrossLinc®, Lincoln Electric’s patented operator control technology. Rather than running numerous cables and wires across the jobsite, all power and communication is transmitted through a single standard weld cable for greater arc control at the source.
Having fewer cables and wires offers a much safer, tidier workplace. It also helps operators to set up quickly and control full arc output with accurate compensation for voltage drop, all while eliminating unnecessary steps back to the power source.

The Lincoln Electric Frontier 400X is powered by the Perkins® 403F-15T, a three-cylinder turbocharged diesel-driven engine. With 24.7 horsepower, the power-dense 403F-15T brings the welding and auxiliary power that operators require while minimising noise.
Powered by the reliable, durable and versatile Perkins 403F-15T engine, the welder offers a 60 percent duty cycle rating at 400 amps at 26 volts and a 100 percent duty cycle rating at 325 amps at 33 volts. That results in reliable output that can handle a variety of welding applications and processes around the jobsite.
Across all industries, rental machines see heavy use day in and day out. To maximise productivity and uptime, the Frontier 400X welder offers maintenance reminders and productivity metrics. From tracking arc and auxiliary hours to reviewing air, oil and gas filter status, operators have a full view of component condition and unit optimisation.
Tied into these features is an Auto-Stop/Start function that turns the welder off after it stands idle for a period of time. The days of unnecessary idling are over. Operators can even view how long the machine was on standby or shut off to calculate the associated fuel savings.
Rental equipment is hard at work every single day for extended periods of time, for this reason it is always important to review the systems maintenance notifications and operating parameters. When preventative maintenance calls, the Perkins Rental Support Programme is there to answer. With direct access to tooling, training, online parts ordering and more, Perkins takes care of your engine’s needs.
The Frontier™ 400X is an advanced engine-driven welder/generator offering best-in-class arc performance, coupled with the latest welding innovation for maximum versatility on the jobsite.
