Product Notes:

1) Use only with generators that are certified as clean power (10% total harmonic distortion) by the generator manufacturer. Use with at least 3500 watt generator for 120V use, and a 6500 watt generator for 240V use. Damage to units caused by underrated, or "dirty" power generators is not covered under warranty.

2) This unit is DC output only. It is not designed to weld Aluminum in TIG mode. In stick mode, it can be used to weld aluminum with special flux covered electrodes designed for aluminum welding.

3) Not for use with E6010 electrodes.

5) Specifications and accessories subject to change without notice.
