Product Overview

For home, shop or general purpose welding needs, this compact welder has more than enough capability to get the job done. With both stick and TIG welding capability, the smooth DC power of this inverter machine is impressive when compared to older heavier transformer AC/DC stick welders on the market. In TIG mode, it will weld steel, stainless, nickel, and almost any metal except aluminum. Arc performance is among the best in the industry. It comes complete with a carry case, along with the welding torches, cables, work clamp, regulator and more. It is ready to weld if you have the power, and shielding gas to weld with TIG. (Tungsten, foot pedal and filler not included). The High Frequency start and the automatic gas solenoid give you the ability to make professional, high quality TIG weld without contacting the metal to strike an arc. If you want to weld stick, all you need is a package of your favorite welding electrodes and a power outlet close by. It will weld at 125-Amp TIG (90-Amp stick) output on 120-Volt and really packs a punch operating on 240-Volt with 160-AmpTIG (160-Amp stick). It features a light-commercial class duty cycle of 35% at maximum rated Amp.

  • Compact IGBT inverter design includes carry case and accessories
  • Dual 120/240-volt capability with auto sensing voltage design
  • 15-160-amp welding capability on 240-volt (TIG/Stick)
  • 15-125-amp (TIG)/5-90-amp (stick) welding capability on 120-volt
  • Recommended to weld up to 3/16 in. TIG in single pass
  • Easily welds with common stick electrodes such as 6013, 7014, 7018, 6011 up to 1/8 in. in diameter

Answer: 
You need the cleaning action characteristics of ac arc for aluminum tig welding. But you may get away with small tig welds on aluminum by using a bigger tungsten dia. And using dcep polarity. Of course this will cause electrode to ball up some but it works. Research if you need more info.

Answer: 
It refers to TIG mode. This welder is a DC TIG. For best aluminum TIG welds you need an AC welder. In Stick mode, you can still weld aluminum, using special aluminum electrodes.

August 24, 2016
Answer: 
tech specs say 160 TIG amps can weld 1/8" (0.125) steel on a single pass. but that*s at max amps. sufficient, yes, as far as good, not sure. you might consider getting higher amp welder, so you don*t have to weld at max amps all the time. this way, your duty cycle would be longer, too. you should also check out forums, see what amp welders others recommend for best results.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Good welder bad regulator I am sitting here wring this when I am supposed to be welding. The regulator or solenoid in the welder won't supply argon. The first time I used this machine it worked fine, the second time it failed, I do think it's just the cheap regulator they sent with it. If it turns out to be that I will amend this review, August 29, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by amazing Love this machine. Already fixed my track bar mounts, made a new crossmember, and a rear bumper. Works great on 110v but you can't beat the 220v. March 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great welder for the farm I wanted a small welder for repair work on my farm. The welder arrived undamaged in a sturdy box. All of the accessories were included and in good shape. I was impressed by the product’s design, fit and finish. It is a well put together machine. This welder is capable of using 1/8” electrodes for bigger jobs but it is still portable enough for smaller jobs in the field on 110v. I've used 6011, 6013, 7014 and 7018 rods on it and have been very impressed. I’ve started to learn how to tig weld with this welder now too. October 25, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Welder I use this welder primarily for TIG welding. The high frequency start and gas solenoid is a boon for anyone doing a lot of TIG work. Actually, the gas solenoid is an absolute must for anyone even remotely serious about TIG welding frequently. The argon is automatically started and stopped by the welder which saves on gas and helps protect the weld from contamination. The welder is also very compact and perfect for storing in the truck for remote fabrication or repairs. November 18, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Features! The high frequency on this welder really sets it apart from anything else. I can stick weld and TIG weld with so much flexibility. Oh and it has a gas solenoid too. This allows the welder to start and stop the gas flow automatically when you are tig welding. This is very convenient and helps prevent leaking all of your argon after a weld because you don’t have to remember to shut off the valve at the torch. Overall and excel lent welder. November 14, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jody’s welding pick I saw the PowerArc 160sth being reviewed by Jody on Welding Tips and Tricks and knew that I simply had to have one. After getting one and using for a while welding things up with TIG and stick I can confidently say I made a very good decision. This welder has fully lived up to my expectations. You can’t get better than this. April 17, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I would buy this again This welder works great on the 230 volt side the only problem I have had was on 115v it seems to struggle a little but would recommend this to anyone needing a little dc welder May 13, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Everlast PowerArc 160 Welder a real winner Everlast has a real winner with this welder. 160 amps is the perfect range for mobile TIG and stick welding. It has enough power to tackle any kind of 1/8” stick electrodes and the high frequency start with automatic gas valve is perfect for TIG welding. December 12, 2013
