Key power supply advantages

  • Small size and light weight provide excellent portability.
  • Boost Conditioner™ compensates for input voltage variations, providing improved performance on low-line voltage, on motor generators and on fluctuating input power.
  • Auto-voltage™ automatically adapts to any incoming power from 120 V – 230 V, single phase.
  • Plug adapters provide improved versatility from the shop, to home, to the field.

Key torch advantages

  • Tapered 75-degree torch provides excellent arc visibility, control, and access to hard-to-reach applications.
  • FineCut®-like quality on thin material, while still delivering full performance on thicker metals.
  • HyLife® electrode technology extends consumable life and lowers operating cost.
