Miller Electric Mfg. Co. has increased the output of its Bobcat 250 and Trailblazer 302, Kohler gas-powered and Kubota diesel-powered welding machines/generators, to an Accu-rated 11,000 W of usable peak power. The machines can sustain the peak power for a minimum of 30 seconds at 104 degrees F, according to the manufacturer.
The machines now are better equipped to handle increased power loads commonly encountered during motor starts, the company reports. When used as an emergency backup generator in a home, the machines are designed to reduce the chance of tripping a breaker or allowing a voltage drop that could harm motors when an air conditioner or refrigerator starts.
All models also have 12-gal. fuel tanks and high-impact protective armor with covers for protection on the job site and during transport. Product sheets and comparison charts are available on the company's Web site.
Applications include maintenance repair, fabrication, construction, and farm and ranch.
