Hobart has introduced the Trek 180 portable MIG welding system. This wire welder operates off its self-contained battery or 115-V power, welds 24-gauge up to 1/4-in. mild steel in a single pass and recharges off an automotive power inverter or 115-V receptacle. Features include 180 A on 115-V power, 120 A on 17-VDC battery power at 20% duty cycle, rechargeable inside a vehicle, and self-shielded flux-cored or solid-gas wires. When fully charged, the unit delivers approximately 100-in. of continuous weld bead using .030 diameter flux-cored wire on 1/8-in. mild steel. The 52-lb package has been built to withstand harsh conditions and incidental abuse.
