    Default Weight of cat diesel generator welder

    I was wondering how heavy a old cat diesel generator is I bought an old 1977 Ford f250 crew cab with a home made flat bed and a rebuilt 400 it been sitting in a patch of weeds taller than it some weed the weed whip couldn't cut! But it's like any truck from Minnesota it need alot of rust repair but I was wondering if I could fit a welder and a tool box on the back.

    Default Gen Set Weight

    Hi HG,
    a D399 Standby Diesel Electric Gen Set weighs in at around 22,700 lbs--10,297 Kg. dry shipping weight.
    Likely too heavy for your F250 Crew Cab Truck.
    Cheers,
    Eddie B.

    Default D311 Welder Set

    Hi,
    I was fishing for whether you were asking about a single or twin arc welder set and which engine.

    A Product Line Book from 5-59 shows a picture of the Twin Arc Welder powered by the later D311 Series H, Different engine to the D2, shipping weight for the same engined Power Gen Set is given as 2,266 lbs.

    Sorry, no specs for single arc welder powered by early D311 engine.
    An early D311 Power Gen Set shipping weight is given as 2760 lbs.

    Cheers,
    Eddie B.
