Equally suitable for both the welding enthusiast and the professional that is in need of a well equipped AC/DC TIG welder,  the Everlast PowerTIG 250EX is a versatile solution.  Not only is it versatile, it's a true performer, putting out 250 amps of TIG welding power on single phase 240V, with a 60% duty cycle while doing so.   Feature for feature though, it delivers as well. The unit is equipped with items like fully adjustable pulse, AC frequency, AC balance control, stick function with arc force control, and 2T/4T remote control functions.  It even includes a spot weld timer for those needing to make routine, perfectly timed spot welds on sheet metal.  The IGBT inverter module reduces size and weight of the unit and keeps it portable.  The welder will operate efficiently on both 240V single phase, and 240V 3 phase power.   For those needing to weld thin gauge material, the unit features low amp start capability in both AC and DC modes, down to 5 amps.   The PowerTIG 250EX has built a name for itself in the industry as a capable and economical welder and the latest generation continues that legacy.

The unit is not recommended for E6010 use. Recommend using E6011 instead.

If you plan on using this unit on a generator, the generator must be certified as producing "Clean Power" by the generator's manfacturer. Everlast does not maintain a list of "approved" generators. The manufacturer of the generator should be able to supply information about the Total Harmonic Distortion (THD). THD should be 5% or less.

For operation on a generator, a Minimum of 10, 500 surge watts is recommended.
