ESAB Ruffian ES 150G EDW

Lightweight, powerful, all-in-one DC Stick welding machine and AC generator combination. 

As a welder, Ruffian uses inverter technology to provide up to 150 A of reliable welding power at 60% duty cycle in a very stable arc that helps avoid rework. As an AC generator, Ruffian uses a 14 HP Kohler® engine to deliver up to 4.5 kW starting power. 120 VAC and 240 VAC outlets provide versatility to run lights, grinders, hand tools – even light-duty plasma cutters and MIG/TIG welders – and to use as emergency backup.

The weld module of this unit is identical to that of the ESAB Rogue 180i, which means you get a welder that has already stood the test of time.

Great company

Helps us out greatly with some shopping problems. Solved the issue quickly .


Haven’t received the welder . Very poor shipping

The freight carrier lost Dougs order and it was a headache for everyone involved. Every day they told us it would come in 1-2 days, weeks went by and we collectively decided they were lying us. We filed a claim with the carrier, and shipped Doug a brand new unit. We also gave him heavily discounted leads with stinger and ground as a thanks for the patience.

In the end Doug got what he ordered

Kevin and his team were absolutely phenomenal throughout my purchase. Hands down, Kevin’s customer value is beyond incredible. He knows his products and better yet does everything with pride. I will be purchasing my products from Weldready again and again without a question.
