For the extra go anywhere capability, the Everlast PowerTIG 185 DV will enable you to operate virtually anywhere a power outlet is present. The PowerTIG DV's digitally controlled IGBT inverter delivers a smooth, steady arc, as good as any unit in it's class.

The PowerTIG 185DV features  both AC/DC TIG pulse welding capability along with a stick welding function. The TIG Pulse function is simple to control and use with 2 pre-programmed settings that offer the choice of operating at 1 pulse per second, or at 50 pulses per second. It's designed to be another "tool" in your tool kit when welding metal.

When the welder is compared to similar products from Miller or Lincoln, the PowerTIG 185 DV offers the widest range of adjustment, and the best duty cycle. The digitally controlled inverter retains the analog style input, making it a favorite for those users that like to "see" all their settings at a glance. This welder is perfect for pet projects around the shop, or a go anywhere portable unit you throw in the truck, when you don't know quite what to expect when you get to the jobsite.


PLEASE NOTE: This machine is fitted with a 15A plug. To achieve the maximum performance out of your Everlast Machine please ensure your current breaker and wiring/socket setup at your place of use is sufficient enough to achieve this. For example you may be required to upgrade your breaker to a 32A dedicated circuit to suit, therefore allowing you to achieve your machines full duty cycle. If in doubt please contact your local licensed electrician for more info prior to purchasing and please see terms and conditions/warranty for more information.

Manufactured and compliant with IEC/AS 60974.10, CE Guaranteeing your electrical safety and performance. INDUSTRIAL USE ONLY

The Foot pedal and stick electrode holder with cable are optional.  Unit features dual 120V/240V input capability.  Output on 120V will be reduced.  To operate at full output Amp capacity on 120V, a 40 amp breaker may be required along with heavier wiring.  Consult local codes.  This unit is not designed for use with E6010 Stick electrodes.   If using on a generator, use only with a "clean power" Generator that is rated as 5% or less Total Harmonic Distortion.  This rating is supplied by the manufacturer of the generator and is the level considered safe for electronic equipment. The minimum generator size required for operation is 7500 watts (surge rating).
