Is this a multi process machine does it do Mig Tig stick in flux core

Asked by: Jcmartino
The Champion Elite is a DC stick welder primarily. There are accessories from Miller that can be added to do wire welding with gas or flux core wires and scratch start DC TIG on steel and stainless. Unfortunately TSC does not sell these accessories since these options are not Hobart related products.

Compared with the Miller Bobcat, does the Hobart welder have similar arc stability? Essentially asking if the power flow is consistent?

Asked by: paulnnn
The main generator is the same as the Miller Bobcat, it just does not offer a CV tap. The DC stick portion is equal to the Bobcat.

is the 50 amp plug a/c or d/c power

Asked by: william50
All of the outlets are AC power. The welding studs are the only DC output.

I notice this is a DC welder do I was wondering If I was to run a Miller Multimatic off of this machine, would I have AC welding capabilities provided by the multimatic? 

Asked by: Lukecsa
The weld portion of the Champion Elite is DC but the outlet power is still AC. To get AC from the Multimatic it would have to be available from that unit. The Miller Multimatic 200 and 215 do not provide AC weld output but the Multimatic 220 does.

Is this welder waterproof

Asked by: welderboy47
The Champion Elite it tested to certain water spray tests. The unit would not operate in hurricane force type rains as it is not a sealed unit.
