The Hobart Trek 180 is the first self-contained MIG welding system for applications off the power grid. Includes two internal sealed lead acid batteries and integrated charger that allow welder to be charged completely in 90 minutes and recharged to 80% in 20 minutes, using a 115V outlet. U.S.A.
The Trek 180 battery-powered wire welder is the first professional system on the market for MIG welding "off the power grid." No matter where your hobby or job takes you, the Trek delivers heavy-duty weld power to fabricate or repair 24 ga. up to 1/4-inch mild steel in a single pass. Powered by two internal sealed lead-acid batteries, the high-purity energy storage technology enables the Trek to be completely charged in about 90 minutes and quickly recharged in about 40 minutes. The integrated charging system is powered by standard 115-volt household current and can operate while plugged in or completely cordless. The Trek delivers 180 amps (approx. 10% duty cycle) on 115-volt standard power--a weld output which, until Trek, has been limited to 230-volt welders. The unit is setup for both self-shielded flux-cored and solid gas-shielded wires from .024 to .035 diameter.
Awesome product, my only complaint is that it took about a month to receive. Other than that I would highly recommend the Trek. Read morePublished 11 months ago by Classified
Be aware, this welder is considered hazardous by Amazon and can't be returned, only disposed off. I guess due to the fact that it contains lead acid batteries? Read morePublished 15 months ago by duliskov
This is a very well built machine. I purchased this machine to be able to weld off grid for small emergency repairs, It does a fantastic job for that task. Read morePublished on February 9, 2013 by Al
