Trail Welding Hits a New Level
Hobart introduces the Trek 180, a portable MIG welding system inspired by and designed for off-road enthusiasts and fabricators. This revolutionary trail welder operates off its self-contained battery or 115V power and travels where other portable or fixed units can't. The Trek welds 24-gauge up to 1/4-inch mild steel in a single pass and recharges off an automotive power inverter or 115V receptacle.
• 52-pound package operates while plugged in or completely cordless
• 180 amps on 115V power (an output previously limited to 230V welders), 120 amps on 17VDC battery power at 20-percent duty cycle, is ideal for fabrication in the garage or repairs off-road
• You can also recharge the unit inside a vehicle using an automotive power inverter
• No more need to run you welder off heavy-duty alternators or to carry a second battery.
