do you have more specs? I'm interested to know if this is compatible with a water cooled torch?

They are here, in stock and ready to ship!

We are proud to OFFICIALLY release the new PowerTig 185 MICRO. We have been working on it for over a year and now it is finally here. This is a completely new unit and design, and will compete well in the Miller Diversion and Lincoln 175 market and with other basic AC/DC TIG welders. No other imported welder comes close to the simple yet functional design we are offering. However, I imagine you will eventually see the import competition copying and bringing out their own versions based off our unit. This unit is another example of the different working relationship we have with our factory over many other importers and part of what makes things different. We began in September 09 with our efforts to bring this product to market.

INDEED it is small in weight and stature. A scant 29 lbs (my scale), and 7 inches wide, by 12 inches high x 18 inches long.

It is really the answer that many customers are seeking in an AC/DC TIG only machine. Quite often, we encounter new and even seasoned customers who desire a machine with capability but do not have a grasp of the advanced features of the more advanced welders.

Many are disappointed to find that many of the functions of the more advanced TIGs are overidden when using the foot pedal. Controls like up slope, down slope, start amps, and end amps are useless with the foot pedal. Furthermore, Pulse tig welding really only reaches its maximum potential with the torch switch. Using the foot pedal and pulse together really makes things more difficult to regulate, with both styles of pulse amp control we have. Customers intending to use the foot pedal are better off with a more simple machine with features that are usable with the foot pedal.

The PowerTig 185 has been boiled down to the most basic and important features while welding whether AC or DC. Here are the features that we feel will bring out the best quality welds with the least amount of hassle:

1) 5 amp start DC. Gives you the low amp capability on thin sheet metal and tubing. Excellent for auto body and fabrication.

2) 20 amp start AC start. Quite low actually for AC use. It is sufficient to do most all but the absolute thinnest aluminum.

3) 180 amps maximum with 35% duty cycle. Compare to others in its class, at 10%!!! 180 amps in an inverter will accomplish a lot. You'll get right up to 1/4" in a single pass with aluminum.

4) AC frequency control. 20-250 Hz. This matches all our AC capable TIG machines on frequency, giving exceptional adjustment. No other TIG in its class offers this feature.

5) AC Balance control. 10-90%. This matches our 250EX, and is what gives excellent control over the cleaning range. It even exceeds our current DX and LX series units. Suffice it to say, no other TIG in its class offers this range of cleaning adjustment.

6) Pedal or Panel Control switch. Simply select for foot pedal operation, or the simple, press and hold 2T torch operation. Easy and simple without sorting through multiple slope, and time controls.

7) Built in, automatic pre flow and postflow, set to the most ideal time length of about .3 seconds preflow and 3 seconds post flow.

8) DINSE 25 connectors. Able to change out torch. With other welders in its class, the torches are fixed and difficult to change.

9) HF start only. Simple and straight forward starts everytime whether in AC or DC mode.

10) TIG only. Many people are seeking a basic tig machine, with a shop full of MIG and stick welders already at their disposal. No need to duplicate what you've already got. Very few customers make use of the stick feature on the unit, so we have simplified and eliminated that feature.

Retail price is 849.00 with torch, consumables and regulator.

Foot pedal is extra.

The 185 Micro is an inverter with the same IGBT technology of our other welders.

How much is the foot pedal?

And for that matter, do you even recommend a foot pedal for new users? I have MIG welded everything including aluminum, and even gas welded everything including aluminum (really), but my TIG experience is limited to about 5 minutes at a Lincoln roadshow one time. LoL...

Thanks!

I have been using my PT185 a bunch and it is awesome. Extremely under rated and IMHO under priced for what you get.

I honestly have not fired up a single other welder of mine since getting it up and running. I may sell a miller or two and fund some more equipment for the shop.

Btw, Oleg, do you have a link handy for modifying the pedal? I have heard there is a DIY fix out there if its a clunky one and I just havent had the time to locate it. It works just fine, but feels a little weird.

Thanks!

BTW for new people looking into Everlast, once they have what you are looking for in stock, they are awesome to deal with.

this really would be the perfect machine if it just had the damn pulser. Looks like a great machine for a great price.

oh wow excellent. that might make me want the 185 over the 200...
The plug just switches easily to use either regular wall socket or 220v socket?

How thick could i weld with 110v?

also there seems to be rumors online that this unit is only 220v.
Are you sure about the 110v?

I am pretty sure that this machine they have in stock IS 220v ONLY. They are expecting a 110v/220v machine by the end of the year. This info is just from what i have read online.

Alright sounds great! I have money ready but i need a 110v capable machine.
Please keep us updated as soon as it is 110v capable. I am so ready to buy this.
Basically a great cheap alternative to miller diversion 180
