FOR ENGINE
powered equipment.
1.h. To avoid scalding, do not remove the
radiator pressure cap when the engine is
hot.
1.a. Turn the engine off before troubleshooting and maintenance
work unless the maintenance work requires it to be running.
____________________________________________________
1.b. Operate engines in open, well-ventilated
areas or vent the engine exhaust fumes
outdoors.
____________________________________________________
1.c. Do not add the fuel near an open flame welding arc or when the engine is running. Stop
the engine and allow it to cool before refueling to prevent spilled fuel from vaporizing on
contact with hot engine parts and igniting. Do
not spill fuel when filling tank. If fuel is spilled,
wipe it up and do not start engine until fumes
have been eliminated.
____________________________________________________
1.d. Keep all equipment safety guards, covers and devices in position and in good repair.Keep hands, hair, clothing and tools
away from V-belts, gears, fans and all other moving parts
when starting, operating or repairing equipment.
____________________________________________________
1.e. In some cases it may be necessary to remove safety
guards to perform required maintenance. Remove
guards only when necessary and replace them when the
maintenance requiring their removal is complete.
Always use the greatest care when working near moving
parts.
___________________________________________________
1.f. Do not put your hands near the engine fan.
Do not attempt to override the governor or
idler by pushing on the throttle control rods
while the engine is running.
___________________________________________________
1.g. To prevent accidentally starting gasoline engines while
turning the engine or welding generator during maintenance
work, disconnect the spark plug wires, distributor cap or
magneto wire as appropriate.
ELECTRIC AND
MAGNETIC FIELDS
may be dangerous
2.a. Electric current flowing through any conductor causes
localized Electric and Magnetic Fields (EMF). Welding
current creates EMF fields around welding cables and
welding machines
2.b. EMF fields may interfere with some pacemakers, and
welders having a pacemaker should consult their physician
before welding.
2.c. Exposure to EMF fields in welding may have other health
effects which are now not known.
2.d. All welders should use the following procedures in order to
minimize exposure to EMF fields from the welding circuit:
2.d.1. Route the electrode and work cables together - Secure
them with tape when possible.
2.d.2. Never coil the electrode lead around your body.
2.d.3. Do not place your body between the electrode and
work cables. If the electrode cable is on your right
side, the work cable should also be on your right side.
2.d.4. Connect the work cable to the workpiece as close as
possible to the area being welded.
2.d.5. Do not work next to welding power source.

SAFETY
ELECTRIC SHOCK can kill.
3.a. The electrode and work (or ground) circuits
are electrically “hot” when the welder is on.
Do not touch these “hot” parts with your bare
skin or wet clothing. Wear dry, hole-free
gloves to insulate hands.
3.b. Insulate yourself from work and ground using dry insulation.
Make certain the insulation is large enough to cover your full
area of physical contact with work and ground.
In addition to the normal safety precautions, if welding
must be performed under electrically hazardous
conditions (in damp locations or while wearing wet
clothing; on metal structures such as floors, gratings or
scaffolds; when in cramped positions such as sitting,
kneeling or lying, if there is a high risk of unavoidable or
accidental contact with the workpiece or ground) use
the following equipment:
• Semiautomatic DC Constant Voltage (Wire) Welder.
• DC Manual (Stick) Welder.
• AC Welder with Reduced Voltage Control.
3.c. In semiautomatic or automatic wire welding, the electrode,
electrode reel, welding head, nozzle or semiautomatic
welding gun are also electrically “hot”.
3.d. Always be sure the work cable makes a good electrical
connection with the metal being welded. The connection
should be as close as possible to the area being welded.
3.e. Ground the work or metal to be welded to a good electrical
(earth) ground.
3.f. Maintain the electrode holder, work clamp, welding cable and
welding machine in good, safe operating condition. Replace
damaged insulation.
3.g. Never dip the electrode in water for cooling.
3.h. Never simultaneously touch electrically “hot” parts of
electrode holders connected to two welders because voltage
between the two can be the total of the open circuit voltage
of both welders.
3.i. When working above floor level, use a safety belt to protect
yourself from a fall should you get a shock.
3.j. Also see Items 6.c. and 8.
ARC RAYS can burn.
ii
4.a. Use a shield with the proper filter and cover
plates to protect your eyes from sparks and
the rays of the arc when welding or observing
open arc welding. Headshield and filter lens
should conform to ANSI Z87. I standards.
4.b. Use suitable clothing made from durable flame-resistant
material to protect your skin and that of your helpers from
the arc rays.
4.c. Protect other nearby personnel with suitable, non-flammable
screening and/or warn them not to watch the arc nor expose
themselves to the arc rays or to hot spatter or metal.
FUMES AND GASES
can be dangerous.
5.a. Welding may produce fumes and gases
hazardous to health. Avoid breathing these
fumes and gases. When welding, keep
your head out of the fume. Use enough
ventilation and/or exhaust at the arc to keep
fumes and gases away from the breathing zone. When
welding with electrodes which require special
ventilation such as stainless or hard facing (see
instructions on container or MSDS) or on lead or
cadmium plated steel and other metals or coatings
which produce highly toxic fumes, keep exposure as
low as possible and within applicable OSHA PEL and
ACGIH TLV limits using local exhaust or mechanical ventilation. In confined spaces or in some circumstances,
outdoors, a respirator may be required. Additional precautions are also required when welding on galvanized
steel.
5. b. The operation of welding fume control equipment is affected
by various factors including proper use and positioning of the
equipment, maintenance of the equipment and the specific
welding procedure and application involved. Worker exposure level should be checked upon installation and periodically thereafter to be certain it is within applicable OSHA PEL
and ACGIH TLV limits.
5.c. Do not weld in locations near chlorinated hydrocarbon vapors
coming from degreasing, cleaning or spraying operations.
The heat and rays of the arc can react with solvent vapors to
form phosgene, a highly toxic gas, and other irritating products.
5.d. Shielding gases used for arc welding can displace air and
cause injury or death. Always use enough ventilation,
especially in confined areas, to insure breathing air is safe.
5.e. Read and understand the manufacturerʼs instructions for this
equipment and the consumables to be used, including the
material safety data sheet (MSDS) and follow your
employerʼs safety practices. MSDS forms are available from
your welding distributor or from the manufacturer.
5.f. Also see item 1.b.

SAFETY
WELDING and CUTTING
SPARKS can
cause fire or explosion.
6.a. Remove fire hazards from the welding area.
If this is not possible, cover them to prevent
the welding sparks from starting a fire.
Remember
that
welding
sparks
and
hot
materials from welding can easily go through small cracks
and openings to adjacent areas. Avoid welding near
hydraulic lines. Have a fire extinguisher readily available.
6.b. Where compressed gases are to be used at the job site,
special precautions should be used to prevent hazardous
situations. Refer to “Safety in Welding and Cutting” (ANSI
Standard Z49.1) and the operating information for the
equipment being used.
6.c. When not welding, make certain no part of the electrode
circuit is touching the work or ground. Accidental contact can
cause overheating and create a fire hazard.
6.d. Do not heat, cut or weld tanks, drums or containers until the
proper steps have been taken to insure that such procedures
will not cause flammable or toxic vapors from substances
inside. They can cause an explosion even though they have
been “cleaned”. For information, purchase “Recommended
Safe Practices for the Preparation for Welding and Cutting of
Containers and Piping That Have Held Hazardous
Substances”, AWS F4.1 from the American Welding Society
(see address above).
6.e. Vent hollow castings or containers before heating, cutting or
welding. They may explode.
6.f. Sparks and spatter are thrown from the welding arc. Wear oil
free protective garments such as leather gloves, heavy shirt,
cuffless trousers, high shoes and a cap over your hair. Wear
ear plugs when welding out of position or in confined places.
Always wear safety glasses with side shields when in a
welding area.
6.g. Connect the work cable to the work as close to the welding
area as practical. Work cables connected to the building
framework or other locations away from the welding area
increase the possibility of the welding current passing
through lifting chains, crane cables or other alternate circuits.
This can create fire hazards or overheat lifting chains or
cables until they fail.
6.h. Also see item 1.c.
6.I. Read and follow NFPA 51B “ Standard for Fire Prevention
During Welding, Cutting and Other Hot Work”, available from
NFPA, 1 Batterymarch Park, PO box 9101, Quincy, Ma
022690-9101.
CYLINDER may explode
if damaged.
iii
7.a. Use only compressed gas cylinders
containing the correct shielding gas for the
process used and properly operating
regulators designed for the gas and
pressure used. All hoses, fittings, etc. should be suitable for
the application and maintained in good condition.
7.b. Always keep cylinders in an upright position securely
chained to an undercarriage or fixed support.
7.c. Cylinders should be located:
• Away from areas where they may be struck or subjected to
physical damage.
• A safe distance from arc welding or cutting operations and
any other source of heat, sparks, or flame.
7.d. Never allow the electrode, electrode holder or any other
electrically “hot” parts to touch a cylinder.
7.e. Keep your head and face away from the cylinder valve outlet
when opening the cylinder valve.
7.f. Valve protection caps should always be in place and hand
tight except when the cylinder is in use or connected for
use.
7.g. Read and follow the instructions on compressed gas
cylinders, associated equipment, and CGA publication P-l,
“Precautions for Safe Handling of Compressed Gases in
Cylinders,” available from the Compressed Gas Association
1235 Jefferson Davis Highway, Arlington, VA 22202.
FOR ELECTRICALLY
powered equipment.

PRÉCAUTIONS DE SÛRETÉ
SAFETY
Pour votre propre protection lire et observer toutes les instructions
et les précautions de sûreté specifiques qui parraissent dans ce
manuel aussi bien que les précautions de sûreté générales suivantes:
Sûreté Pour Soudage A LʼArc
1. Protegez-vous contre la secousse électrique:
a. Les circuits à lʼélectrode et à la piéce sont sous tension
quand la machine à souder est en marche. Eviter toujours
tout contact entre les parties sous tension et la peau nue
ou les vétements mouillés. Porter des gants secs et sans
trous pour isoler les mains.
b. Faire trés attention de bien sʼisoler de la masse quand on
soude dans des endroits humides, ou sur un plancher metallique ou des grilles metalliques, principalement dans
les positions assis ou couché pour lesquelles une grande
partie du corps peut être en contact avec la masse.
c. Maintenir le porte-électrode, la pince de masse, le câble de
soudage et la machine à souder en bon et sûr état defonctionnement.
d.Ne jamais plonger le porte-électrode dans lʼeau pour le
refroidir.
e. Ne jamais toucher simultanément les parties sous tension
des porte-électrodes connectés à deux machines à souder
parce que la tension entre les deux pinces peut être le total
de la tension à vide des deux machines.
f. Si on utilise la machine à souder comme une source de
courant pour soudage semi-automatique, ces precautions
pour le porte-électrode sʼapplicuent aussi au pistolet de
soudage.
2. Dans le cas de travail au dessus du niveau du sol, se protéger
contre les chutes dans le cas ou on recoit un choc. Ne jamais
enrouler le câble-électrode autour de nʼimporte quelle partie du
corps.
3. Un coup dʼarc peut être plus sévère quʼun coup de soliel, donc:
a. Utiliser un bon masque avec un verre filtrant approprié ainsi
quʼun verre blanc afin de se protéger les yeux du rayonnement de lʼarc et des projections quand on soude ou
quand on regarde lʼarc.
b. Porter des vêtements convenables afin de protéger la peau
de soudeur et des aides contre le rayonnement de lʻarc.
c. Protéger lʼautre personnel travaillant à proximité au
soudage à lʼaide dʼécrans appropriés et non-inflammables.
4. Des gouttes de laitier en fusion sont émises de lʼarc de
soudage. Se protéger avec des vêtements de protection libres
de lʼhuile, tels que les gants en cuir, chemise épaisse, pantalons sans revers, et chaussures montantes.
5. Toujours porter des lunettes de sécurité dans la zone de
soudage. Utiliser des lunettes avec écrans lateraux dans les
zones où lʼon pique le laitier.
iv
6. Eloigner les matériaux inflammables ou les recouvrir afin de
prévenir tout risque dʼincendie dû aux étincelles.
7. Quand on ne soude pas, poser la pince à une endroit isolé de
la masse. Un court-circuit accidental peut provoquer un
échauffement et un risque dʼincendie.
8. Sʼassurer que la masse est connectée le plus prés possible de
la zone de travail quʼil est pratique de le faire. Si on place la
masse sur la charpente de la construction ou dʼautres endroits
éloignés de la zone de travail, on augmente le risque de voir
passer le courant de soudage par les chaines de levage,
câbles de grue, ou autres circuits. Cela peut provoquer des
risques dʼincendie ou dʼechauffement des chaines et des
câbles jusquʼà ce quʼils se rompent.
9. Assurer une ventilation suffisante dans la zone de soudage.
Ceci est particuliérement important pour le soudage de tôles
galvanisées plombées, ou cadmiées ou tout autre métal qui
produit des fumeés toxiques.
10. Ne pas souder en présence de vapeurs de chlore provenant
dʼopérations de dégraissage, nettoyage ou pistolage. La
chaleur ou les rayons de lʼarc peuvent réagir avec les vapeurs
du solvant pour produire du phosgéne (gas fortement toxique)
ou autres produits irritants.
11. Pour obtenir de plus amples renseignements sur la sûreté, voir
le code “Code for safety in welding and cutting” CSA Standard
W 117.2-1974.
PRÉCAUTIONS DE SÛRETÉ POUR
LES MACHINES À SOUDER À
TRANSFORMATEUR ET À
REDRESSEUR
1. Relier à la terre le chassis du poste conformement au code de
lʼélectricité et aux recommendations du fabricant. Le dispositif
de montage ou la piece à souder doit être branché à une
bonne mise à la terre.
2. Autant que possible, Iʼinstallation et lʼentretien du poste seront
effectués par un électricien qualifié.
3. Avant de faires des travaux à lʼinterieur de poste, la debrancher à lʼinterrupteur à la boite de fusibles.
4. Garder tous les couvercles et dispositifs de sûreté à leur place.

COUGAR™ Push Pull Gun - GENERAL INFORMATION
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
RECOMMENDED PROCESSES AND
EQUIPMENT
The Cougar™ push-pull gun is a lightweight, handheld combined
semiautomatic wire feeder and welding gun, designed primarily for
aluminum welding using argon shielding gas. The cable included
with the push-pull gun allows welding up to 25 (7.62m) or 50 feet
(15.2m) from the power source.
The push-pull gun can be used to weld aluminum and aluminum
alloys using Gas Metal Arc Welding or GMAW (also known as MIG)
process, which requires a supply of shielding gas. Argon is normally used due to its smooth, stable arc, good metal transfer, and low
cost. Positive polarity gives good penetration and affords a base
metal cathode cleaning effect.
The gun is intended for use with Power Wave C300, Power Feed
10M, Power Feed 25M and Power Mig 350MP Power Sources. For
other applications, contact your local Lincoln Electric sales office or
distributor.
The push-pull gun is ideal for aluminum fabrication in industrial
shops, automobile body shops, marinas and for the advanced hobbyist.

WARNING
Periodically blow out or vacum any metal wire shavings from Drive
Roll area.
• Do not operate with covers
removed.
Inspect and replace any worn wire on inlet guide or barrel liner.
NOTE: Oil and spray cleaners can contaminate electrode wire and
cause bad welds. They could also make wire drive rollers slip. Be
careful when using any of these liquids on push-pull gun.
• Disconnect input power from
welder before installing gun.
• Do not touch electrically hot
part.
ELECTRIC SHOCK
can kill.
Carefully clean gun with a cleaner that is safe for plastic. Apply
cleaner to rag and wipe gun. Do NOT spray cleaner on gun. Keep
cable clean. Oil, grease gasoline, paint, and solvents degrade cable
insulation.
• Only qualified persons
should install, use or service
this machine.
Routine maintenance for consumable spare parts will depend on Duty Cycle and
particular application.
When finished welding, be sure to turn power source off and
close valve on gas cylinder.

Troubleshooting Guide
TESTING THE TORCH
Motor Check.
Remove the torch connector from the cabinet.
Using the torch Control Cable Connector, check the resistance across pins “A”
and “B” (motor leads). The resistance across the motor should be between 5-10
ohms. If an open circuit or short exist, check the motor leads and motor
independently.
Testing the Potentiometer.
Using the torch Control Cable Connector, check the resistance across pin “D”
(wiper) and pin “C”. The resistance should vary from 5K - 0 ohms.
Check the resistance across pin “D” (wiper) and pin “G”. The resistance should
vary from 5K - 0 ohms.
Testing the Trigger Switch.
Using the torch Control Cable Connector, check for continuity across pins “E”
and “F” when the trigger is pressed.
