ESAB Welding & Cutting Products has launched its new Warrior YardFeed 200 portable wire feeder, which provides remote control of the voltage and wire feed speed at the feeder, including the ability to pre-set wire feed speed. The Warrior YardFeed 200 joins the MobileFeed 301AVS and MobileFeed 201AVS, both launched last year, to provide a complete line of portable wire feeders compatible with ESAB’s Warrior 400i, CC/CV and Warrior 500i CC/CV power sources. All feeders deliver premium feeding performance, especially with the cored wires common in construction, field repair, railcar, ship and barge building.

The Warrior YardFeed 200 holds a 200 mm diameter spool of wire and can run wire diameters from .6 mm solid wire to 1.6 mm Flux-Cored wires. Maximum permissible load is 365 amps @ 60% duty cycle. The unit measures just 595 x 215 x 325 mm and weighs 11.8 kg, so it easily fits through manholes, portals and other hard-to-reach areas. A high-strength steel casing and steel frame protect controls and connectors, while a built-in flow meter enables fine-tuning gas flow at the feeder to ensure proper shielding gas delivery.

“The Warrior YardFeed enables easy handling in cramped spaces, such as those found in the ship/barge, off-shore and construction industries,” says Hans Örtengren, Global Product Manager, ESAB. “Additionally, the ability to adjust voltage and wire feed speed remotely can increase productivity when operators need to change welding parameters, such as using hotter settings for welding in the flat position and cooler settings for welding vertical up.”
