ESAB's Renegade ES 300i stick-TIG welder with more power in a portable packageClick image to enlarge

ESAB Welding and Cutting Products' Renegade™ ES 300i Stick/TIG welder is in stock and available for purchase through traditional and online welding distribution outlets. The inverter-based Stick/TIG machine offers extreme power in a compact format: it weighs 33 lb, measures 12.6 x 7.8 x 18.11 in. and produces a top output of 300 amps at 40 per cent duty cycle.

Easy-to-grab front, rear and top handles give the operator maximum flexibility for lifting the machine. Operators can easily pass obstacles, climb stairs, pass through manholes and lift the unit onto racks, making Renegade an optimal welding machine for applications such as ship and offshore yards, construction, pipe, repair and maintenance and heavy fabrication.

"Renegade is a next-generation field welding machine, offering more power and a design that's easier to move around any jobsite," says Doug Smith, Product Business Manager – Arc Equipment, ESAB. "When Renegade can't be located next to the work, its strong output enables the use of welding cables and work leads up to 300 ft., and a remote amperage control extends operator range by providing extreme accuracy over long distances."

For added location flexibility, automatic voltage detection enables the machine to accept single- and three-phase primary power input ranging from 208V to 480V ±10 percent without any need to rewire the machine for different input voltages.

Renegade's unique handle design offers built-in storage and security for the welding cables so operators can quickly pack up and go by wrapping the cables around the handles and locking them in with a dedicated shoulder strap. Renegade's rugged composite casing was designed to withstand the roughest environments and more mechanical impact than any other machine on the market.

Renegade has an amperage output range of 5 to 300 amps for Stick and TIG, including LiveTIG for TIG welding where HF ignition can't be used. Renegade can weld with Stick electrodes up to 1/4 in. and has gouging capabilities with carbons up to 3/16 in. diameter, making it the most powerful welder in its weight class.

Performance features include automatic Hot Start, a synergic process that provides optimal energy during the starting sequence, improves strike performance and reduces sticking. Similarly, the Adjustable Arc Force function enables the operator to adjust the arc characteristics so that they are crisper or softer, tailoring the arc for different electrodes, applications and operator preference. Preferences can be stored in one of three memory functions.

"As a next-generation inverter, Renegade provides state-of-the-art weld control for a more stable arc, less spatter and improved arc starts and stops," says Smith.
