Welds Stick/TIG
Superior stick arc performance with settings specifically designed for XX10 and XX18 electrodes and a stiff and soft setting for each. Whether welding pipe or in the flat there is a setting for each application.
Auto-Line™ Technology
Work in more places with Auto-Line technology which automatically calibrates the power source to operate properly when connected to any primary input voltage ranging from 208-575 volts, single- or three-phase, 50 or 60 Hz — with no manual linking required.   Learn More
Weighing only 34.6 pounds, the CST 282 is easily moved around a jobsite for increased operator comfort and safety. It is 7 pounds (20%) lighter than the previous CST model.
Universal Connector System
New Miller-exclusive universal output connector system can be used with either Tweco- or Dinse-style connectors. Welders can convert the machine from one connector style to another — without having to take the machine apart or deal with adapters.
Simple & Accurate Interface
Digital meter and push-button controls for more precise setting when presetting or monitoring welding amperage.
Lift-Arc™ provides arc starting that minimizes contamination of the electrode and without the use of high-frequency.
Adaptive Hot Start™
Automatically makes starting stick electrodes easy without creating an inclusion.
Voltage Reducing Device
VRD technology reduces output voltage when the operator isn’t welding, lowering the potential hazard from inadvertent contact with the electrode during non-welding pauses.
4 and 8 Pack Racks
Rack mountable for protection, storage, and transportation of multiple power sources while using a single primary power cable.
