With this Wire Feed Welder you can work anywhere – even outside on a windy day - without having to lug around a large bottle of shielding gas!
The G0879 Flux-Core welder is the perfect go-anywhere option for both convenience and power. Operating the G0879 really is as easy as carrying the lightweight, 38-pound welder to the jobsite, plugging it in, attaching the ground clamp and you’re ready to weld!
If you are new to welding, Flux-Core welding is one of the easiest welding processes to learn—requiring less material prep and less equipment on-hand to turn out beautiful welds. Flux-core welders can produce cleaner welds than stick welding, and offer superior weld puddle control, even on thinner metals.
Everything you need is in your hand with the comfortable grip and finger-activated ON/OFF switch, making those out-of-position welding tasks in the horizontal, vertical and overhead positions a breeze. So, whether you’re fixing a steel entry gate at home, reinforcing your tractors bucket loader in the barn, or simply working under the car in the driveway, this is a very handy welder for your needs.
When using flux-core wire in either .030 or .035 inch diameters, there’s no need for shielding gas, which can be blown away from the work area when welding outdoors. Instead, the flux-core wire creates its own pocket of protective gas, helping keep your weld free of porosity during operation and leaving behind an even layer of protective slag behind as the weld cools.
With a standard 120v outlet you will be ready to weld steel up to 3/16 inch thick with ease. The High / Low setting keeps things simple and provides 70 amps on High, or 60 amps on Low, all while doubling the duty cycle.
The G0879 is covered by a one-year warranty covering factory defects and replacement parts. The warranty does not cover consumable parts such as tips. Product support for this equipment is provided by a US based technical support team.ETL certified meeting CSA C22.2 #60-M1990 standards!Input power: 120VOutput current / duty cycle (Low): 20% @ 60 AmpsOutput current / duty cyle (High): 10% @ 70 AmpsMax material thickness: 3/16"Wire diameter: 0.030" & 0.035"Protection class: IP21Overall size: 17-3/4"L x 9-1/2"W x 15-3/4"HWeight: 38 lbs.
