Lincoln Electric has updated its Outback® 145 with a Kohler® 9.5-HP model CH395 OHC (overhead cam) gasoline engine. The welding machine is designed for contractors, maintenance crews, farmers, and ranchers, as well as for use on service trucks where portable DC SMAW and AC generator power are needed.
The engine features a cast-iron cylinder liner, automatic shutdown for low oil level, and a three-year engine warranty.
The unit delivers 145 amps of smooth DC output welding for use with up to 0.125-in. stick electrodes on steel, stainless steel, cast iron, and hardfacing projects. Its single, full-range, calibrated welding output dial makes it easy to set the best current for any maintenance, fabrication, or repair project, the manufacturer states.
The high-capacity, AC generator provides 4,750 W peak power and 4,250 W of continuous power for accessories such as grinders, work lights, and pumps. It also can provide emergency backup power if needed.
