Esab says combining power with low weight and location flexibility, the Renegade Series has three models: Renegade ES 300i for MMA and Live TIG, Renegade ET 300i for MMA and TIG with high frequency (HF) or Lift TIG arc starts and Renegade ET 300iP, which adds controls for pulsed TIG welding. The company says Renegade ES 300i weighs only 15.5 kg and Renegade ET models weigh 17 kg and all models measure just 460 mm by 200 mm by 320 mm, giving them the smallest footprint among their competitors and simplifying trolley manoeuvres when configured as a water-cooled system.
