New! X-Treme 12VS - provides wire feed speed that is accurate and consistent from the start of the weld to the finish, and from one weld to the next. Consistent wire feed speed is very important with large-diameter cored wire, because small changes in wire feed speed make large changes in deposition rates.

New Wire delivery system bends wire over a large radius and applies just the right amount of force to ensure consistent feeding.

Polypropylene case with built-in slide rails and the ability to open the door to change wire with the feeder in a vertical position.

The SuitCase X-TREME 8VS feeders now include a FREE Bernard® Q-Gun. The SuitCase X-TREME 12VS now come with either a FREE Bernard Q-Gun or a Bernard Dura-Flux™ gun and Centerfire Consumables:

Q300 gun - 300-amp, 100% duty cycle, air-cooled, 15 ft cable.
Dura-Flux gun - 350-amp, 60% duty cycle, air-cooled, 15 ft cable.
Superior arc performance and gas coverage, longer consumable life and an easy-to-change tip design improve productivity and reduce overall welding costs.
Free Gun Exchange Program ensures you have the right MIG gun for your application.
Digital meters with SunVision™ technology are standard for voltage and wire speed, and can also display amperage if desired. Meters can be seen clearly even in direct sunlight.

Circut BoardPotted and trayed main printed circuit board for the harshest environments adds exceptional reliability. Board has full-trigger isolation so a shorted gun trigger will not affect feeder operation.

Improved contactor and overall duty cycle for high-amperage applications (425 A at 60%)

Trigger hold, wire jog, and gas purge are all standard and located on front panel.

Wider voltage range for small and large wires with no contactor chatter or arc outages.

New! Double-filtered gas valve helps keep dirt from clogging and affecting gas flow.

Excellent starts and improved superior arc performance for all types and sizes of wires whether using CV or CC power supply. Best low-end CC arc in the industry.

Thermal Overload Protection
Internal components are protected from damage by thermal overload protection which automatically shuts down the unit if duty cycle is exceeded or air flow and cooling are restricted.
