    Default New Everlast 160STH unpacked

    -p1010932-2-jpg-p1010933-jpg-p1010935-2-jpgDecent no-name blowmolded case, packed full of stuff, all seemed to be of commercial quality.
    The unit was electric green, in perfect condition and packed without incident. Nice carry handle with the straps, that might
    have helped UPS not destroy it.

    Foot pedal did not come with the unit, likely is shipped separately, or it will certainly be in my case since unless I'm blind as a bat I don't see any
    foot pedal in that pile of accessories.

    Instruction manual is pretty marginal and flimsy, and I'm still not sure what this unit pulls on 220 from the wall at max output.
    Could it really take 90 amps to generate 160?
    Hopefully there will be some kind of instruction manual online for it.

    I'll fire it up when I know how to do so safely...

    It will pull about 31 amps maximum on 240 volts.. Mine is on a 50 amp breaker which I already had installed for my older welder. Be sure to put your plug on correctly which ever one you choose. I used the 50 amp plug of course to match the already installed outlet.

    Could you take another picture of the back of the unit, of the data plate? it is all blurry and I cant read it..It will tell you the current ratings.

    sorry, those pics were pretty bad. And yes, all the info is back there, someone will need to translate for me.

    actually the amp draw looks easy, 27 on average and 34 max on 220V?

    That machine has basically identical specs to my Miller Maxstar 150STH. Given that at discount the Miller with remote goes for about $1800, I'd say you got yourself a bargain. Just add a remote (necessary for TIG), a tank of argon, and make up a pigtail to allow you to choose either 110 or 220v and you are all set.

    150amps at 220V is good for basically anything you would do with a 1/8" rod and the 90A at 110v is adequate for most 3/32" rods. (except 6010 which doesn't do well with small inverter welders)

    two questions please:
    where is the stopping point where 110V 90amps just won't make a decent weld, and higher amp
    on 220V is a best practices choice.

    Why does the voltage spec drop on this unit as the load goes to 100% duty? An issue with heat buildup?
    I only took "shocks for jocks" in college, so my memory of little electrical pictogram meanings is really shaky.
    Looks like Tig and Stick broken out by 110V and 220V, just the voltage makes me curious.

    Tell me what it all means please, including the meaning of life...

    In my experience 1/8" welding rods are too big for 110V use on my equivalent dual voltage Maxstar. All 3/32nd rods I have used (6011, 6013, 7014) have done fine with 110V. If you want to practice starts, you might even get some 1/16 rod so you can experience too little, just right and too much power for starting a weld.

    I will give it a try.. might not get every thing right, but here goes.

    Left to right top to bottom. it is a single phase device whose output is DC

    Tig mode. DC at 5 amp arc voltage 10.2 volts at 160 amps arc voltage is 16.4 volts
    SMAW mode on 220Volts 160 amps 35 percent duty cyle 130 amps is 60 % duty cycle and 100 amps out is 100 percent duty cycle.
    arc voltage is 16.4 volts at 160 amps 15.2 volts at 130 amps and 14 volts at 100 amps
    SMAW open circuit volts 70

    Tig mode 110 volts running 5 amps arc volts are 10.2 at 90 amps it would be 13.6volts
    SMAW mode open circuit voltage 70 volts.
    SMAW mode 110 volts 90 amps is 35% duty cycle and 13.6 arc volts 55amps is 60% duty cycle and 12.2 arc volts at 30 amps it is 100% duty cycle at 11.2 arc volts

    at 110 volts maximum current is 36.4amps (better have a healthy 110 volt breaker)
    at 220 volts maximum current is 34 amps maximum
    The other current rating showing 29.2 amps and 27.3 amps I cannot read the subscript but I take that to be "nominal" ratings but not the maximum rating. If you can tell me what the blurry subscript is maybe I can figure it out. So you would need at least a 40 amp breaker and I would put in a 50 amp with number 6 wire to the outlet for future use. You could get by with a 40 amp and number 8 wire. You could skin by if you had to, with 30 amp breaker and number 10 wire, but dont expect to run it at max without breaker tripping.

    You could skin by if you had to

    But I don't... and not interested in making toaster elements, so I'll get a 50A outlet installed when they bring service in.
    I could put one in my home garage also, but kinda wondering about what welding does on top of nice seal coated macadam driveway?
    Likely nothing good.

    Well I have never tried it... I weld over 0 to 3/4 gravel, it makes some mess.. I don't think you would like the looks of in your nice driveway
