The New Upgraded Lincoln Viking 3350 4C Welding Helmet
One of the most popular welding helmets on the market has been upgraded to improve the clarity, comfort, and convenience for professional and hobby welders. The Lincoln Viking 3350 4C welding helmet is the fourth generation version of the best-selling helmet series that offers welders incredible value and performance.
This new model comes with significant upgrades and a competitive price of $245 (as of this writing) at Baker’s Gas and Welding. Here is a breakdown of what you can expect to find in the latest version of this top welding helmet.
A More Productive Welding Helmet
Welders will love the convenience of the external grind button that easily switches between welding and grinding by holding down the button for 3 seconds. That keeps welders literally more hands on for each aspect of their welding projects.
While other welding helmets require switching modes in order to differentiate sunlight from the welding arc, the new Vicking 3350 comes with an exclusive Sunlight Differentiation feature integrated into each mode of the helmet. You can keep welding at your selected shade, 5-13, and the Sunlight Differentiation technology will tell the difference between the glow of the arc and the glow of the sun.
As with other Viking models, the new 3350 is also hard hat compatible and offers plenty of add-ons you can drop in to your order on the Baker’s website by selecting from a simple drop-down menu.
A Better View for Welding Work
Offering a 4C lens rated 1/1/1/1 for perfect optical clarity, the Viking minimizes the green tint that can obscure the view of helmets with similar clarity. The 12.5 inch viewing area puts it among the largest viewing areas in the welding helmet market.
Shades are consistent from any angle, offering a more consistent view of your welding work regardless of your position.
Improved Welding Comfort with New Headgear
In addition to the lighter weight of the new Viking 3350, the new and improved X6 Headgear is easy to adjust forward and backwards for the optimal fit in any setting, even welding out of position. The form fitting top head support evenly distributes the weight of the helmet so that no single point receives significant strain.
Each contact point of the headgear is larger than the previous model and offers a snug, comfortable fit right out of the box. The headband rotates for additional positioning options. The locking point is also higher up for improved visibility around the workspace, including for points that are above where welders are standing.
Weighing in at 21 oz., the new Viking 3350 keeps the weight and strain from contact points to the bare minimum.
Some Subtle Changes to the Viking 3350
Welders will also notice that the new Viking has longer battery life than previous models due to its improved ADF circuitry, which makes the battery more efficient and helps welders finish their work with fewer stops for charging.
The new matte finish replaces the gloss finish of the previous Viking helmet model, offering a sharp appearance with minimal glare.
Keeping What Works from the Last Model
Each Viking welding helmet comes with a bandana, sticker sheet, 5 outside lenses, and 2 inside lenses, and you’ll notice that those lenses are the exact same ones as previous Viking models. So upgrading your helmet doesn’t mean you need to sell off your old accessories. For welders working for longer stretches, we especially recommend picking up some extra outside lenses, replacement sweatbands, and welding gloves.
As with the older Viking 3350 models, more graphics and designs are coming soon to the Baker’s store, and a 2250 version is available with a smaller viewing area.
