ESAB, a company specializing in fabrication equipment and technology, has announced the availability of the Ruffian ES 150G welding generator at Northern Tool + Equipment Stores. The Ruffian ES 150G is ESAB's first light-industrial, engine-driven welding generator.
The 2-in-1, 150-amp stick welder and 4.5 kW generator is built for construction, service trucks, farm or ranch work, light fabrication, maintenance and other outdoor applications where on-site portability is required. The Ruffian ES 150G provides simultaneous generator power and welding without arc fluctuation.
"Our partnership with ESAB as the first retail home for the Ruffian is driven by our passion for helping people find the right tools for the work. We prioritize providing products to our customers that help them solve the toughest challenges put before them. The 2-in-1 nature of this welder and generator make it a game changer," said Northern Tool + Equipment CEO Suresh Krishna.
The Ruffian also has four 120-volt receptacles and one 240-volt receptacle. With its five-gallon gas tank, this machine offers 6.5 hours of runtime at maximum output.
"We designed the Ruffian ES 150G for welders 'on the go' because we recognize the challenges of working in environments outside of the fabrication shop. The Ruffian ES 150G offers simultaneous generator power and welding without arc fluctuation, causing it to stand apart from other light industrial engine drives with similar outputs due to its simultaneous generator power and welding without arc fluctuation. This means one person can use tools while a second person welds, boosting productivity," said Eleanor Lukens, president, Americas, ESAB. "We are excited to expand our retail partnership with Northern Tool + Equipment by adding Ruffian ES 150G to our product offerings."
