Portable Welder Works Like Full Size Machine
The Mosa MS-170 weighs just 64 lbs. but has an output of 170 amps. That's enough, says Decarufel, to handle electrodes up to 5/32-in. "It's the most effective amperage to weight ratio in the industry," he notes.
"The high-frequency arc characteristics of the welder allow even inexperienced welders to strike and maintain an arc," says Decarufel, noting that the welder's high-frequency also makes the Mosa machine ideal for thawing out frozen pipes. An optional add-on unit turns the welder into a generator that produces up to 2,000 watts of auxiliary power.
Decarufel says farmers who've had a chance to test it like the portability of the powerful unit. "You can strap it to the back of a 3-wheeler and weld anywhere," he notes. The Mosawelder sells for $995 and can be shipped UPS.
