New remote controls for Lincoln Electric’s Cross Country® 300 and SAE-300® MP engine-driven welders aim to streamline operations for pipeline welders and those working in construction applications. Lincoln Electric is introducing two new wired remote control units and new welders with factory-installed wireless remote systems.
The new wired remote controls, available with or without an 115V AC power duplex receptacle, include a generous, 125 ft (38.1 m) detachable cable. A customisable Min/Max range sets easily in seconds. And, the small, weather-resistant units stow easily in trucks or job boxes.
Both units are offered as accessories for the Cross Country 300 and SAE-300 MP welders. The K4268-1 Wired Remote with an 115V AC auxiliary power duplex receptacle also comes bundled in new One-Pak® packages for the Cross Country 300 and SAE-300 MP.
A first for Lincoln Electric – new wireless remote controls – now are factory-installed in the new, textured, stainless-steel case and gray-painted-steel case versions of the Cross Country 300. A new textured stainless steel case and wireless remote are also offered on the SAE-300 MP welder. These small, weather-resistant remotes fit right in operators’ hands and have a 400 ft (122 m) range, depending on site obstructions.
Using the wireless remote, operators can activate the glow plug for one to 30 secs, stop and start the engine, activate high or low idle and adjust the current control.
US$1000 End User Cash Rebate
From now until 16 May, Lincoln Electric is offering a special US$1000 end user cash rebate on each of the Cross Country 300 and SAE-300 MP One-Pak packages containing the new wired remote controls. The rebate offer also applies to welder models equipped with the new wireless remote controls. All rebate claims must be received no later than 31 May.
