Convenient weld puddle control is right at your fingertips (or foot pedal, your choice!), with the G0883 160 Amp TIG/SMAW Welder.
This welder is the perfect choice for those ultra-clean, "stack of dimes" weld beads you love from a traditional TIG unit, while offering the functionality of switching arc control from foot pedal control to finger-activated.
What does this mean in the shop? It means you have the penetrating power and precision of a TIG welder in tight corners, with the ability to ramp-up and control your arc from a finger control without having to place a foot pedal within reach. Say you are welding a roll cage into your rock crawler and have no way to control the arc with the included foot pedal, simply connect the finger switch ON/OFF port, set your welding mode to either 2T or 4T, and away you go foot-free!
So, what is 2T and 4T mode? These allow the ability to manually apply pressure to the finger switch or foot pedal to ramp-up and maintain the power, or automatically set the peak power for the weld. All you have to do is click the finger ON/OFF switch or foot pedal and the machine automatically ramps to the set power, allowing you to focus on the distance to workpiece and adding filler, rather than focusing on power control. When the weld is down simply click the finger switch or foot pedal and the machine will automatically ramp-down the power.
The downslope power and post flow settings are easily adjusted on the control panel to help maintain an even weld puddle during the important cool-down process.
With both AC and DC welding options and adjustable AC balance you are able to work with steel, stainless steel, aluminum and titanium on materials up to 3/16 inch thick.
The G0883 is also a powerful stick welder! With up to 160 Amps at the ready you have the ability to control your weld, while getting the penetration needed for horizontal, vertical and overhead welding on material up to 3/8” thick.
Not only does this unit operate on both standard 120v and 230v, but it comes fully-loaded with features and accessories to tackle nearly any job of any material!
The G0883 TIG/SMAW welder comes with a 1 year warranty on parts and factory defect issues (consumables like tips not included) and supported by a U.S. based product support team. Replacement parts shipped from the Parts Department in Springfield Missouri.
