The Lightning MTS 275 is the latest in the MIG/TIG/STICK line of welders to feature AC/DC TIG welding capability. This new unit features revised synergic function now called "Power Set" and now includes auto set parameters for all three modes. The 250 Amp unit 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, all processes feature 60% output at maximum amperage for the Process. That means, for MIG, at 250 Amps, you'll have 60% duty cycle available. For TIG, at 250 Amps, you'll have 60% duty cycle available. For Stick, at 200 Amps, you'll have 60% Duty Cycle available.
Add the PowerCart300 and the Powercool 400 for a convenient, stacked design to complete 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.
* Single pass welds greater than 1/4" are not recommended as a sound welding technique in short circuit mode. To achieve max penetration on 240V, axial spray is necessary. Aluminum should always be welded in axial spray mode.
For Aluminum purchase the Parker DSP360 spool gun (and desired drive roll size) or purchase the .035"/.045" 2 pc U groove drive roll set along with a polymer liner for the stock 10ft gun.
*Welding greater than 1/4" thick in a single pass is not typically recommended for the best quality welds. Multi-pass welds are usually performed on metal 1/4" or thicker. The reason for considering greater power on thicker metals is to more quickly overcome the heat dissapation rate of thicker metals so faster travel speeds and greater control can be obtained.
* When considering welding with stick, it is more important to factor electrode capacity than welding thickness capacity due to multi-pass requirements of thicker metals. Each electrode has a range of minimum and maximum thicknesses the electrode can weld, depending upon electrode manufacturer recommendations and formulations.
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 occurs 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. Generator Requirement: 120V: 5500 Watts; 240V: 11,000 Watts MINIMUM. When using a generator, failure to use a generator rated as clean power voids warranty.
