3 specialized built-in functions allow anyone to easily lay a beautiful bead
Automatic Hot Start allows operator strike the arc easily at rust or paint surface.
Built-in Anti-Stick circuit will automatically boost the current when the electrode is glued to the metal, make it easy to rip off the electrode and re-strike the arc.
Adaptive arc-force will optimize the character of the arc to deliver exactly what you want.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
What size generator would I need to run this? If I want a 50ft extension cord for this welder, what is the recommended gauge (AWG)?
We recommend at least 5KW generator to run KickingHorse® A220 high power welding inverte at max capacity. However, you always can dial down the current to run off smaller breaker or generator.
This welding inverter is designed to work down to 160V AC and it will internally compensate all loss. Extension cord need to be rated to about 15A (about 3,5KW) what is AWG 14. Do not worry about loss in the cord. Just old transformer welders are sensitive to loss in cord. I have used 150ft cord connected to 240AC and I was impressed. I didn't use more than 120A but still Knob for current adjustment was pretty functional and accurate. I would say this is one of main feature to work equally in the range 160-250V roughly.
Is it an ac or dc welder? can i run it off my dryer or stove outlet? 2. what's the recommend circuit amperage for the welder?
KickingHorse® A220 is DC output arc welding inverter. It will run-off house hold dryer or stove outlet. We recommend 50A breaker for the full capacity of A220.
How thick a metal can be welded with this welder?
This welder is very powerful I went through 3/8 thick steel like butter.
Can i tig weld with this unit dc of course ?
We do not recommend TIG welding with KickingHorse® A220 High Power arc welding inverter.
What does duty cycle mean on arc welder?
Duty cycle is a welding equipment specification which defines the number of minutes, within a 10 minute period, during which a given welder can safely produce a particular welding current. You may noticed that many manufactures never rate the duty cycle with current in specification. Do not be fooled because with the same duty cycle, an arc welder rated at 200A is much more powerful than the one rated at 90A.
Does it have US safety approval? What happens if I use non - certified welder in US?
KickingHorse® A220 is UL certified arc welding inverter and is safe and legal to weld both on-site and in house. In United States, before decide to purchase any welding machine without UL certification, you must consider not only the safety of the employees, your family members and properties, but also the legal, financial and insurance consequence may face by using non-safety approval equipment, no matter at work place or in home.
The Fines for Non-Compliance are Very Heavy in US!
What plug this welder comes with? Do I need to purchase a extra plug?
KickingHorse® A220 is ready to use with UL certified North American 12 AWG Power Cord and NEMA 6-50P "Welder" Plug.
What kind of rods can it weld or handle?
6011 6013 7018 all run fine, even 6010! have also used 3/16 7014 with excellent results.
