Designed around Lincoln Electric's patented Diamond Core Technology that offers extreme arc stability regardless of position, the new Power Mig 256 welder is aimed at MIG and flux-core welding in light industrial fabrication and maintenance and repair work.

The PM 256 is rated at 250 amps/ 26 volts at a 40% duty cycle, and its cast aluminum internal wire feed is capable of speeds ranging from 50 to 700 inches per minute. The 208/230 VAC input model includes a 115 VAC auxiliary receptacle for powering grinders, lights and other tools in the work area.


For set up, the PM 256's control panel features digital meters which read out pre-set voltage and wire feed speed, during welding, the meters read actual voltage.

The 256 comes with Lincoln's new Magnum Pro 250L gun – on a 15-foot cable -- for mild steel, stainless steel or aluminum welding, and is spool-gun-ready. The case includes a Coil Claw cable management system and a top-mounted expendables parts tray to help in keeping the job site organized.

The wire-drive system features dual-driven rollers for positive traction and regulated wire-feed-speed control and includes a 100% wire supporting split wire guide system to keep welding wire aligned.
