AC stick welding power sources have the control to get the exact heat you need always. These machines allow weld time to increase when amperage decreases. They have the range and muscle to handle many stick welding, hard surface.
Hobart's STICKMATE LX 235 AC/160 DC power source lets you choose between AC or DC weld output to expand your welding options to either AC or DC stick electrodes. DC output means fewer arc outages, less sticking, less spatter and better control on thin work.
