Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Machine WOW! I am impressed! I have been a professional/certified welder for over 25 years, and this machine is just the ticket to walk that line of industrial and hobbyist. I push my multi-process Vulcan off of it nicely. It even ran those nasty 6010 (reverse polarity) and 6011 (I know they're AC) rods lol! I laugh because everyone says you can't, but I have proven them wrong every time. 7018 5/32" are a little cold for me, but I have no problem burning 1/8" 7018 on this machine.

What length of leads do u recommend for this machine

Asked by: HRMM
The best kit would be 193067 which is a 20/15 foot #4 welding lead kit. You can go up to a 195195 #2 welding lead kit that is 50 feet each lead.

What size rod can you weld with it. Can you weld pipe fence

Asked by: jettex
The unit can run up to 5/32 rods and weld up to 1/4" material. The unit is rated at 145 amps maximum output and can weld with rods capable of that amperage. Pipe fence should be doable if the material is generally no thicker than 1/4".
