The PowerPro 164 is clearly a great choice for the person needing a modestly powered welding package that offers a little bit of everything. It is perfectly suited for the Home garage, small fabrication facility or portable repair business. This all new Multi-Process model features a compact IGBT inverter design with go-anywhere 120/240V dual voltage operating capability. The PowerPro 164 also features a rugged exterior, along with simple control layout for ease of use. As far as our TIG/Stick/Plasma Multi units go, this combination welder/plasma cutter is one of the best that we offer. With up to 160 amps of welding power in AC and DC TIG modes, and 130 amps of Stick welding power, this welding and cutting combination allows you to handle day to day welding chores. The TIG mode also features full adjustability of the AC output with AC frequency and AC balance controls to offer the maximum quality weld. When you add the simple 2 positionTIG pulse feature, this unit gives you plenty of capability. At the power level this unit puts out, it's able to weld up to 3/16" aluminum and 1/4" steel in a single pass in TIG mode, and handle many common 1/8" stick electrodes. The 40 amp plasma is good for regularly cutting metal up to 3/8" thick. This unit also features a commercial 60% duty cycle at full power, so there's more welding than resting being done.
