Ranger® Engine Driven Welders

Ranger® Engine Driven Welders


Today I’d like to talk about the Ranger line of engine-driven portable welders from Lincoln. These are the machines that are designed for construction and farm use. This happens to be the Ranger 225 that’s in the back of my truck right here. As you can see, it fits real nice in a small pickup truck like this. If you want to mount it to a trailer, there’s a trailer option for it or an all-terrain undercarriage, there’s an option for that, too. Couple key features of this machine: this is a 225 amp machine, CC and CV. DC welding current. So you get 225 amps out of it on the CC mode, which means when you’re stick welding or you’re TIG welding on CC, you get 225 amps. You get 200 amps out of it when you’re running in the CV mode for wire, so if you’re running Lincoln L-50 or Lincoln L-56, you get 200 amps. Or if you’re running self-shielded flux-cored wire like Lincoln NR-211 or NR-212, you get 200 amps out of it. Remember, it’s also a generator. You get 10,500 watts peak of AC current and 9,000 continuous, so if you need to run a fan or some lights or radio or on a hot day like today it’d be nice to have a cooler with some water in it. This has the ability to do that. It’s also an enclosed case machine. The whole machine is enclosed, the whole Ranger line has an enclosed case. This keeps the elements out, the wind, of course, the snow and the rain. It’s powered by 23-horsepower Kohler engine. Has a 12-gallon fuel tank. The next step up from the Ranger 225 is the 250 GXT. It has the same enclosed case as the Ranger 225 as you see here. Has the same 23-horsepower Kohler engine, gasoline driven. Has the same 12-gallon fuel tank, but it’s AC/DC. So you have AC/DC welding current that has 11,000 watts peak current, 10,000 continuous. And the cool thing about the Ranger 250 GXT is it has a stainless steel side option, so all these red panels that you see on this machine here can be replaced with stainless steel. The next step up is the Ranger 305. There’s basically three models of that. There’s the 305G, which is gasoline drive. There’s the 305D, which is diesel. And the 305LPG, which of course is propane. That gives you 300 amps DC welding current.
