Built-in arc control for Stick welding allows operators more flexibility when welding in tight areas where sticking electrodes is a problem.

Hot Start™ makes it easy to start difficult electrodes.

Simple control panel provides easy, efficient operation.

Unique Fan-On-Demand™ operates only when needed reducing noise, power consumption, and the amount of airborne contaminants pulled through the machine.

Automatic thermal overload protection with indicator light.

Enclosed circuit board provides additional protection by eliminating contaminants which cause premature failure of components.

15 amp 115 VAC duplex receptacle allows operators the flexibility to run tools from power source without the need for additional 115 VAC power in the weld area.

Power efficient for exceptional value and return on you investment.

Power cord strain relief.

Compatible with the Wireless Remote Hand Control. Improve productivity, eliminate clutter and cord tangles in the work area. Eliminate cord failure and associated downtime/repair costs and extend the operator's welding range without adding cord extensions.

Optional digital voltmeter and ammeter.

Remote control capability allows operators fine tuning capability at an extended distance.

Hot Start™
Used on some Stick (SMAW) machines to make it easier to start difficult-to-start electrodes. Used for arc starting only.

LVC™ Line Voltage Compensation
Keeps output of the power source constant regardless of fluctuation in input power ± 10%.
