Portable & Compact 140 Amp Stick Welder Kit in a Carry Case
These are a good dependable small stick welder, please don't be put off by our low price, we have priced these welding machines to be competitive, which means you get lots of good welder for very little outlay.
This stick welder is simple and easy to use, the CWS MMA 140 is a 140Amp stick welding machine with a digital display and comes ready to weld. All you need to add is welding rods of your choice, if you don't already have them plus your normal PPE for arc welding. (PPE = Welding gauntlets, safety glasses, Welding Mask plus optional leather apron and arms - list is not exhaustive as it depends on where and what is being welded).

This CWS stick welding machine comes supplied with a 13A plug already fitted and in our tests has proved capable through the amperage range. We have welded 0.9mm steel with a 1.6mm rod on 24A through to welding with a 3.2mm on maximum amperage and the results have been great.   If you are only ever going to use your welder on a domestic 13Amp socket there is no need to buy a higher power welder as it will not be possible to turn the power up above the 130 - 140 Amp setting as higher settings would draw too much current and blow the fuse / trip the MCB.  

What makes this compact CWS MMA140 welder really easy to work with is the auto hot start which make this machine a dream to strike an arc and then weld stick after stick.  "Hot start" provides a short temporary increase in power when starting / striking up an arc which helps to ensure your electrode doesn't stick as you strike the arc.  This CWS inverter stick welder makes it easy for you to weld because the welding current setting may be fine tuned by adjusting the welding current just 1 amp at a time which means you set exactly what current suits your welding joint and rod size plus and of course you can still tweak the setting if you need, as you are welding.   

When you compare this inverter machine to a traditional transformer MMA machine, with maybe 6 power settings, you will never look back and you will wonder how you ever managed.

The power setting LED display and power adjustment knob have a clear plastic hinged cover to help prevent accidental adjustment plus stop dirt covering the display.  The work return and electrode holder leads are both connected by dinse plugs to the front panel which makes alteration / extension simple and easy.  The CWS MMA 140 welder has 3m long work return lead plus a 3m long electrode holder lead making it much less restrictive than many other machines.
Compared to other inverter welders there are several advantages to the CWS MMA140 you need to consider, such as:-
     Is a case included,
     Does it come with 25mm sq cables?
     Does it have a digital display?
     Is it generator friendly? 
Of course the answer to the above questions is simply one word. Yes the CWS MMA 140 includes all these.

As with most modern MMA (Manual Metal Arc - Stick Welding) machines this unit has "VRD" - Voltage Reduction Device which lowers the OCV (Open Circuit Voltage) when an arc has not been initiated - Safe working practice must always be followed as the electrical circuit in any welding machine could still kill you.

Typically our CWS MMA machine is capable of welds on maximum amps (140A) with a 60% duty cycle based on 40 degrees C. This compares to many others that have a duty cycle of around 30 or 35%. Add into that the overall machine weight of just 4kg combined with it's small size it is a machine to beat.
