Burn 3/8 inch plate in single pass, run 3/16 rod with no stress. Handles E6013, E7014, E7018 or E6011 electrode, suitable for mild steel, cast iron, stainless steel as well as hard surfacing. > GENERATOR FRIENDLY - Maintain the same stable performance at 160V to 270V input, A220 is optimized for dirty power and fluctuating voltage, build to run off generator or weld on-site. > PUT SAFETY FIRST - CSA approved - 100% safe and legal use both at workplace and home.The authenticity of the rated output amperage and duty cycle of all KickingHorse welding inverters are certified by CSA. No worry for fake specs anymore. > SMOOTH ARC IGNITION - Unbeatable 76-volt open circuit voltage (OCV), outperform all the transformer welders in the market, provides excellent arc strike performance at rust surface. A220 - Premium arc welding machine builds for using on-site and running off engine driver. From KickingHorse ®, Canada's Leading Inverter Welding Machine Brand. We are a Canada based company. For the past 14 years, we dedicated to provide premium quality welders & plasma cutters for home, hobby & DIY users. Why Choose Inverter over Transformer? A transformer uses AC line voltage oscillating at 60 HZ. Inverters multiply this 60HZ incoming power many times to a much higher frequency yielding higher current output in smaller machines, inherently different arc characteristics, and ease of use. An inverter better reduces ripples and spikes in the welding output, creating an ultra-smooth, stable arc - even at low amperage.
You also get minimal spatter and good arc initiations. An inverter has higher open circuit voltage, leads to easier arc strike at rust or painted surface. KickingHorse® A220 has 76V OCV, far higher than its transformer counterparts. An inverter provides far more arc optimization than a traditional transformer unit. > Hot Start allows operator strike the arc easily at rust or paint surface.> Anti-Stick will automatically boost the current when the electrode is glued to the metal, make it easy to rip off the electrode and re-strike the arc. > Arc-Force will optimize the character of the arc to deliver exactly what you want. Transformer welder manufactures won't tell you the efficiency of their products, because large portion of the power is wasted on heating up the transformer coil instead of generating welding arc. KickingHorse ® A220 has 80% efficiency - more than 25% saving on your bill. Get the best high power stick welding machine today by clicking'Add to Cart' above now!
