Thread: Power Arc 160 STH

  1. Default Power Arc 160 STH

    This a sweet little welder. I love how smooth it runs 6013, just like butter. It struggles with 6010 though unless you poke up the amps. Runs well with 6011 and 7018. Stay away from 7018AC, unless you like little pin holes in your beads. Makes a great TIG machine as well.

    Very pleased.

    Welcome, Nils, congrats on the new machine! I read about the 7018AC rods in the other post, that's frustrating.

    What kind of projects do you have going? Post up some pics if you can, and think about joining the current contest: still time to qualify.

    I sold my little 160STH but I liked it a lot. It's a nice HF start TIG like you mentioned, but it's also foot pedal ready as well. I never ran 7018AC on it or 6010, but have on our other units. 6010 was not that bad.

    I'm looking to buy a little stick unit - having the HF start/TIG capability would be nice too.

    Mike, you mentioned that E6010 wasn't too bad - does the 160 do 6010 without problems?

    I have not ran them on the 160. The PA200 was design for the rod, so if you plan on burning a lot of them, I would recommend the PA200. I have ran them on other units, and it worked. Not sure if Mark has tried them on a 160STH?

    The new 200 is now dual voltage and we have added. A Lift start tig function to it.although it does not have the gas valve or HF start and it is still primarily a MMA unit the option for lift tig start along with the dual voltage makes for a very versatile unit .
    Running on 110v will allow 125 amp output on this little unit.
    In fact for any Canadians looking we currently have them on sale.
    Cheers

    The PA 200ST isn't available, from my understanding yet in the US. The ST version will only be 35% duty cycle, not the 60% of the old one. But Duncan says 6010 performance was supposed to be improved, though I haven't tested one yet.

    Thanks for the info guys.

    Was eyeballing the PA200 for duty cycle, etc. Was thinking I could get away with a small box to lug around for stick (w/ E6010)/light TIG (can't do any "lugging around" with the ol' thunderbolt or syncro)!
