Lincoln Electric launches Velion DC Fast Charger and Ranger® Air 260MPX at WTW24


Lincoln Electric Launches Ranger® Air 260MPX™ Multi-Function Engine Drive
Lincoln Electric introduces the all-new Ranger® Air 260MPX™ multifunction engine drive. This machine was designed specifically for the work truck industry, where the unexpected can be expected on any given day. Available later this year, this high-performance, versatile machine is designed to prepare operators for whatever unpredictable circumstances and job demands come their way.

The Ranger Air 260MPX is many things: an air compressor, generator, battery charger, battery jump assist and multi-process welder all in one. This versatile, compact machine eliminates the need to carry numerous pieces of power equipment on a service truck. The result is a lighter payload and more space on the truck for other tools and gear.

Compared to other machines in its class, the Ranger Air 260MPX engine drive delivers industry-leading performance across the board, in air compressor capabilities, clean auxiliary power and welding arc performance:

  • The Vanair® compressor delivers 40 cfm at 150 psi. With up to 30% more air than other machines in its class, operators are able to inflate tires faster and power anything up to a 1-inch impact wrench. The compressor is backed by Vanair’s lifetime warranty and a half-century of engineering expertise in mobile compressors.
  • The 26.5-hp Kohler® Electronic Throttle Body Engine delivers 10 kW of continuous AC generator power to accommodate a variety of tools and equipment. And with less than 5% total harmonic distortion (THD), it can even power sensitive electronics, like laptops.
  • Lincoln Electric’s field-proven welding arc control technology is built directly into the Ranger Air 260MPX to help deliver a stable reliable arc. These include Ready.Set.Weld® technology and ArcFX® technology. In addition to delivering a consistently high level of performance, the Ranger Air 260MPX is also designed to help provide a lower cost of ownership. Auto-stop/start technology with tap-to-start functionality enables the operator to save up to $1200 in fuel and maintenance costs per year*. An electronic throttle body engine with variable engine speed helps lower maintenance costs and improve fuel efficiency. In the work truck industry, no two jobsites are the same, but every jobsite is demanding. Be ready to tackle anything with the Ranger Air 260MPX multi-function engine drive from Lincoln Electric.
