Features and Benefits


The SAE-500 / SAE-500 Severe Duty is the preferred choice for its great arc performance, design simplicity, reliability and ruggedness! Designed especially for pipeline welding and field construction.

The Diesel Workhorse

For demanding jobs that call for high amperage capabilities, the SAE-500 offers 500 amps for DC stick welding and 3,000 watts of AC power. The SAE-500 is powered by a heavy duty Deutz® diesel engine, which offers low maintenance and long life for hassle-free operation. Add CV wire welding
with the optional CV adapter.

Rugged Construction

Heavy gauge steel case withstands rough field handling.

Dual Continuous Control

Continuous adjustment of voltage and current. Select either a soft “buttery” arc or snappy “digging” arc for fast, high quality welding.

High Duty Cycle Welding Output

100% duty cycle at 400 amps and 60% duty cycle at 500 amps for demanding applications.

Heavy Duty Industrial Engine

Deutz 4-cylinder, water-cooled industrial turbo-charged diesel engine offers low maintenance and increased power with 64 HP EPA Tier 4 compliance.
