Pickup-Mounted Welder Tackles Any Farm Job
"Comparing this welder to other welders is like comparing a microwave oven to a conventional oven," says Don Carol, of Resco Manufacturing, Co., Fort Worth, Tex., manufacturer of the new SST-130 pickup welder that uses high frequency electricity, rather than, the heat of high amperage, to weld. What's more, the SST-130 provides an on-the-go 110-V, 1,750 watt D.C. power source and also serves as a battery charger.
The under-the-hood welder operates on engines from 100 to 400 cu. in., burning less than a gallon of fuel per hour at relatively low engine rpm's. It'll electrically weld stainless steel, aluminum, cast iron, chrome molly steel, high carbon steel and mild steel with no size or plate thickness limits. Unlike almost any other welder, it operates as well with welding leads 1,200 ft. long as with 20 ft. cables due to its high frequency electrical operation.
The SST-130 consists of a high-efficiency alternator, control box, a throttle cable, negative jack, and all bolts and tie straps needed to install. Installation requires no special tools and can be accomplished in one or two hours. With just the kit installed, plus a set of welding cables, you can weld, plug in any 110-V tools, and charge batteries. With the addition of an optional T.I.G. kit you can weld aluminum, stainless steel, and other metals. Sells for $745, not including the welding leads and T.I.G. kit.
