Along with its big brother, the Lightning MTS 275, the Lightning MTS 225 is the latest in the heavy-duty MIG/TIG/STICK series to feature AC/DC TIG welding capability. This new series of features revised synergic function now called "Power Set" and now includes auto set parameters for all three modes.
The LIghting MTS 225 is a 200 Amp unit that excels not only in features, it also excels with performance. The new design allows the user to view most all relevant settings simultaneously. This reduces scrolling effort and allows near instantaneous adjustment of all common parameters in use.
The new PowerSET function allows the customer to enter basic operating parameters in MIG, TIG, or Stick mode, and automatically selects the proper Amps and Volts (where applicable) for the user, as well as a few other possible adjustments. This new unit also features a Flux-Core mode for operation with most common types of Flux Core wire (without gas/self shielding).
As powerful as the welder is, it is also capable of operating on 120V if the unit needs to be carried to the work. Of course, you'll have reduced output, but you will not suffer for lack of available duty cycle. As far as operating duty cycle at full-tilt output, TIG and Stick feature 60% output and MIG features 35% at maximum amperage for the Process. That means, for MIG, at 200 Amps, you'll have 35% duty cycle available.
Add the PowerCart 250 and the PowerCool W400 for a convenient, stacked design to complete this welder. If you choose the cooler option, be sure to order the water-cooled torch package for this welder.
PLEASE NOTE: Everlast Welders Australia strongly recommends the use of a 15A RCD box between the machine and wall socket during use. 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.
For aluminum, choose between the Parker DSP 360A gun (recommended) or the SM200N MTS gun for best results. You may also purchase a polymer liner and U groove .035"/.045" 1 pc drive roll kit and use the standard 10 ft gun.
* Single pass welds greater than 1/4" are not recommended as a sound welding technique.
Maximum electrode size is ultimately determined by brand and type of electrode.
Minimum generator surge Wattage needed for maximum output on 240V: 8500 W
Minimum generator surge Wattage needed for maximum output on 120V: 4500 W
NOTE: Use only with a generator rated by its manufacturer as "clean power" if using with a generator. Consult manufacturer of generator for certification. Everlast does not approve or endorse generator brands or models, however, if the damage to the welder occuring from use with a generator not labeled as producing clean power by its manufacturer is not warrantable. Typically clean power is represented as less than 5% THD.
