Vantage 300The company replaced its Commander 300 with the Vantage 300 in a lighter, smaller, stainless-covered package that puts stick, downhill pipe, TIG and wire welding capabilities in the back of a pickup truck. The unit delivers 300 amps, 32 volts, of DC welding output and 100 percent duty cycle, 12,500 watts of 3-phase and 11,500 watts of 1-phase AC generator power. At high welding output, the generator still offers 3,500 watts of auxiliary power at 250 amps. Access innovations such as sliding doors and front-mounted battery tray make the Vantage 300 serviceable in the confines of a pickup-truck bed.
