Multioperator Resources

Arc Performance - Excellent weld performance is provided in both Stick and TIG. Stick boost circuit makes it difficult to stick EXX10 electrodes.

Simplicity - Minimum operator controls requires no training. Adaptive Hot Start™ automatically sets optimum starting conditions for stick electrode. Process selector switch automatically sets the optimum volt-amp curve and DIG for Stick welding based on electrode type.

Durability - Individual power source and rack enclosure designed to meet the needs of field construction.

Portability - Smallest and lightest 8-Pack Rack available

Light weight and small footprint for easy transportation. The low weight enables the use of elevators to move the rack.

Top cover protects machines from falling debris.

Lifting eye simplifies transportation using crane or overhead lifting device.

Lift truck side and end fork pockets.

One main disconnect box with fused circuit breaker switches for each machine.

Common output ground connection (for same polarity use only).

Optional dual rack kit connects two 4-pack CST racks to form an 8-pack rack, utilizing one input power cable and one lift.

Optional rack running gear available for transporting the rack.

Compatible with the Wireless Remote Hand Control. Improve productivity, eliminate clutter and cord tangles in the work area. Eliminate cord failure and associated downtime/repair costs and extend the operator's welding range without adding cord extensions.
