Lincoln Electric Drive

Ranger Air 260MPX from Lincoln Electric

Lincoln Electric has introduced the all-new Ranger Air 260MPX multi-function 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.
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 $1,200 in fuel and maintenance costs per year. An electronic throttle body engine with variable engine speed helps lower maintenance costs and improve fuel efficiency.
