Availability : in stock


Traditional welder/generator with up to 500 amps of pure DC output for stick and DC TIG welding applications with optional CV adapter available for wire welding. Features 120 VAC and 240 VAC single phase auxiliary power and powered by a 64.4 hp Perkins® 1104A-44 diesel engine. Not Available in the US, Canada, or EU.






The Diesel Workhorse™ – For demanding jobs that call for high amperage capabilities, the SAE-400® offers 500 amps for DC stick welding and AC power. The SAE-400® is powered by a heavy duty Perkins® industrial diesel engine, which offers low maintenance and long life. Add CV-wire welding capability with the optional CV Adapter.


  • Rugged Construction – Designed with heavy gauge steel case to withstand rough field handling.
  • Dual Continuous Current Control – Equipped with a continuous current control and a fine tuning control to precisely set amps, volts, and arc characteristics. Dial in a digging, penetrating arc for root beads or a soft, buttery arc for stacking iron on the fill and cap passes. Tremendous control over the arc helps to overcome the most challenging joints on the job.
  • High Duty Cycle Welding Output – 100% duty cycle at 400 amps and 60% duty cycle at 500 amps for the most demanding applications.
  • Generator Output – Euro and NEMA receptacles for 3,000 watts of 60 Hz, single-phase power at 120V or 240V.
  • Industrial Diesel Engine – Powered by a 64.4 hp Perkins® naturally aspirated diesel engine featuring a 29.0 US gal. (109.8 L) fuel tank for long run times.
