    Yep, sure can! Do you know how to hook it up?

        Ln-25

        It's pretty easy. There's a lead (probably a 4/0) that comes out of the back of the feeder. Depending on what type of connector the original owner was using (it can always be changed), that will connect to your "+" lead (for MIG or FCAW-gs) terminal on the Bobcat. If using FCAW-ss you'll connect it to the "DC-" terminal of the Bobcat.

        There is a voltage sensing "ground clamp" on the feeder that must be attached to your work piece along with the Bobcat's ground clamp to complete the "circuit."

        These are what's known as "Voltage Sensing Wire Feeders" or "Across the Arc" feeders, using arc voltage/current to operate.

        The Bobcat has a "Wire" selection on the Process Selection switch (probably wire lo/hi) and you "fine tune" the voltage with the "Fine Tune" knob.

        There should be a chart inside the LN-25 lid with volts/amps/WFS for the different diameter of wire. If you've never used a VS feeder, they're not hard to learn. You'll just have to "play" with it, to get it "dialed" in to your Bobcat.

        I hope it came with a gun, and an assortment of drive rolls and tips.

        The LN-25 is a VERY good feeder. If I left out anything in my set-up outline, I'm sure fellow members will chime in.
