Heavy-duty Vantage 520 SD delivers 520 Amps with a Tier 4 final engine; welder/generator powers all

Lincoln Electric just made it easier for field techs to get their jobs done more efficiently with the new Vantage 520 SD engine-driven welder / generator.

It’s the latest addition to their Severe Duty group of welders suitable for such extreme environments as mining, construction and pipe welding.

The Vantage 520 SD is powered with a Tier 4 Final (T4F) compliant Deutz 34.8 horsepower D2.9L4 engine that meets all new EPA diesel fuel emission standards.

And it’s engineered to handle a variety of processes, including:

  • Stick welding
  • TIG welding
  • MIG welding
  • Pipe welding
  • Flux-cored wire welding
  • Arc gouging

To deliver improved arc characteristics and other advantages, the Vantage SD series welders share a new digital platform. The results are smoother arc action, faster arc response and improved pipe welding capabilities, including reduced spatter.

New pulsing capabilities provide improved arc control for out-of-position work and can be used to reduce heat input, resulting in less distortion of the base material.

The Vantage 520 SD produces 520 amps/30 volts at 60 percent duty cycle and 450 amps/32 volts at 100 percent duty cycle.

In addition, the 520 SD is capable of delivering to 11,000 watts single-phase or 17,000 watts three-phase, 120/240 volt AC generator power.
