Classic 300 HE and SAE-300 HE diesel engine drive welders from Lincoln Electric feature a DC generator welding output that provides arc control for stick, TIG, MIG, flux-cored and gouging processes in code applications.
Both deliver 3,000 total watts of AC power from a 120V or 240V duplex receptacle for power tools and lights. Compliant with the EPA Tier 4 Engine Emissions Standard, both units feature 3-cylinder, water-cooled, 1,800-rpm engines. The Classic 300 HE offers the Kubota D1503 engine, while the SAE-300 HE offers a choice between the Kubota D1503 and soon the Perkins 403F-15T. Both models have glow plugs for cold-weather starting.
