The Everlast PowerARC 280STH is a 280 amp stick and DC TIG welder that features excellent stick arc performance. Thanks to adjustable hot start and arc force controls, it easily handles E6011, E6013, E7014, E7018, and even stainless 309L or 316L electrodes.   The unit also features full TIG capabilities for welding steel, chrome, moly, stainless, titanium and just about every other weldable metal except aluminum and magnesium. 2T/4T TIG controls allows the user the option of welding with or without the included foot pedal in TIG mode.  It also features HF start TIG, and lift start TIG resulting in the ability to work in HF sensitive environments.  A built in gas solenoid, with adjustable pre and post gas flow controls, allow the unit to automatically control gas flow without the use of a manual gas valve located on the torch. With up to 250 amps Stick, and 280 amps of TIG welding power, the PowerARC 280STH is designed to function equally well with both Stick and TIG processes.
