It’s able to operate on 115- and 120-volt, 20-amp home circuits, and the broad output range of 25 to 140 amps allows for the welding of 24 gauge up to ¼-inch steel. Four output voltage settings with wire-feed tracking make the unit easy to set and adjust for different materials and thicknesses, and its integrated wire feeder with quick-release tension lever delivers positive feed with adjustable tension, which provides easy access for threading wire. The built-in contactor serves as an optimal safety feature that makes wire electrically "cold" until the trigger is pulled. Dual-groove drive rolls make it easy to switch between .023/.025-inch (0.6-mm) and .03/.035-inch (0.8/ 0.9-mm) wire.
