Hobart Offers 11,000-Watt Generator with a Powerful AC/DC Stick Welder in the Lightest, Quietest, Most Compact Design in the Market

APPLETON, Wis., January 3, 2012 — Hobart Welding Products has launched its enhanced Champion® ELITE all-in-one AC generator and AC/DC stick welder. The exclusive engine placement of the Champion ELITE creates more efficient airflow, reduces sound and eliminates heat recirculation.  At just over 3 feet long and weighing only 490 pounds, its compact design offers powerful AC/DC stick welding capacity – 260 Amps AC/225 Amps DC – along with 11,000 watts of peak generator power.

Hobart Welding Products designed the unit for farm/ranch, general construction and emergency power applications or as a stand-alone generator.  The unit provides strong and reliable generator power to run compressors, pumps, lights, hand tools and other equipment. It is also capable of producing power during welding so multiple users can work on tasks at the same time.  The Champion ELITE features a covered receptacle package that includes (1) 6-50R 230V receptacle, (1) 14-50R 230V receptacle and (2) 115V 20A Duplex GFCI receptacles.

Adding to its reliability, the Champion ELITE has a 12-gallon fuel tank, along with a Kohler 23 HP twin cylinder, 4-cycle OHV gasoline engine that was designed to conserve fuel and provide long run time.  It also includes Hobart’s Auto-Idle feature, which automatically idles the engine when not in use to provide greater fuel savings and reduce noise.

Features like the unit’s quick-set current control make it easier to use by providing faster set up for welding AC or DC stick, while a coarse and fine range amperage adjustment provides users with greater welding control.

The Champion ELITE is made in the U.S.A and is covered by Hobart Welding Products 5/3/1 Industrial Warranty.

The new Champion ELITE is an all-in-one answer to emergency power
