  •  The Bobcat 260 welder/generator is great for stick and flux-cored welding and designed for maintenance/repair operations, work trucks, construction, farm/ranch and generator use.
  • Remote Start/Stop: Take control and eliminate noise. Easily turn your Bobcat machine on and off remotely so it only runs when you need it. Get more out of each tank, extend time between maintenance and work without the hassle of walking back to your machine. The remote start/stop on Bobcat 260 welder/generators is installed and backed by Miller - so it's just as easy to use and dependable as your Bobcat machine. Simple: One button to start and stop the Bobcat. Durable: Tough and water-resistant with a three-year warranty. Two-Way Communication: After start or stop command is received by the Bobcat, the fob lights up and beeps. Savings on Fuel and Maintenance: A Bobcat welder/generator with remote start/stop is quick and easy to turn off when it's not being used. You spend less money on fuel, and less time and money on maintenance because there are fewer engine hours. Jobsite Safety: The noise of a welder/generator running all day is irritating - and can even keep you from hearing sounds that warn you of potential hazards. When you turn your Bobcat off with remote start/stop, you'll help create a safer environment by reducing the number of machines running on a jobsite and increasing your awareness of warning sounds. Hands-Free Starting: Carbureted Bobcat welder/generators now have eChoke™ technology, which automatically sets the proper air/fuel mixture and eliminates the need to manually engage the choke, so cold-starting is now hands free. (eChoke™ is a trademark of Kohler® Co.) Designed for Reliability: From Appleton, Wisconsin USA, our welder/generators are the most rugged, durable and long-lasting in the industry. We manufacture them to exceed requirements for extreme working conditions and they are hard-working from the core with copper windings and iron generator components for a quality-built machine, lugged - not soldered - heavy internal leads for better field durability, superior cooling technology for maximum performance and engine life, protective doors to cover the weld studs and receptacles as required by OSHA and CSA for jobsite safety lift hook integrated into the center frame, which bolts to the machine's base for greater durability. Small, Light Design: Bobcat welder/generators take up less space on trucks and trailers - leaving more room on your truck for other equipment and tools. Plus, they're easy to move around jobsites - even with weld cables attached. Easy Maintenance: With its intuitive design, the daily maintenance of our Bobcat welder/generators is fast and easy. Front panel maintenance displays help you know when your equipment needs to be serviced. Servicing is simple because oil checks can be performed easily through the top of the machine by the access door, toolless panels that allow for quick access and single-side fuel fill and oil drain/filter.
