Re-engineered welding machines use less fuel
Miller Electric Mfg. Co. has re-engineered its Bobcat™ line of engine-driven welding machines. The new design reduces sound by as much as 33 percent, the company reports. The machine is up to 5 in. shorter and 55 lbs. lighter, depending on the model.
The electronic fuel injection option on the Bobcat 250 optimizes the air-to-fuel ratio for lower emissions and longer run times. It reduces fuel use by as much as 27 percent compared to carbureted models, states the manufacturer.
The front-panel display helps users keep track of service intervals. Oil and air filter checks are performed from the top by the front panel, and the fuel fill and oil drain and filter are accessible on the side. Toolless panels allow for quick access.
