GYS PROGYS 180A MMA INVERTER WELDER KIT
The first of the GYS professional series, the PROGYS 180A is a single phase compact stick welding inverter. A high duty cycle of 160 amps at 78% (20°C) allows intensive use without overheating. Capable of burning 1.6 – 4mm welding rods and being powered by a generator, its a perfect mobile welding machine.
A DC power source, the PROGYS 180A can weld all types of electrodes, rutile coated, basic, stainless and cast iron up to 4.0mm.
Capable of welding material up to 10mm.
This little arc welder also benefits from features seen on more expensive machines:
