Default 280 amp tig..

Pretty impressive 250 amps/100 duty-cycle on a 280 amp unit. Under 3 grand too.

Giving away stuff with it now....... The foot control is standard Esab/ SSC controls 14 pin. Six cooling fans is something else..

100% satisfaction guarantee is a nice feature also,although I never had the need. It's real, and is backed up..

I do know some Esab's are the loudest machines ever built, but performance was outstanding on every loud unit they made. I think the 350 MPI might of been the loudest, this side of a large engine drive.. It was very close to as loud as a 102 dagger was on the deck..

Actually....

It's Italian.... I asked...

Thank you for your recent information request on the Heliarc 281i. The power supply for the Heliarc 281i is made in Italy. It is then assembled in the USA with additional parts i.e regular and tig torch that are manufactured in the USA as well. If you have any additional questions please let me know.


Thanks,

So...
The box is built in Italy... and the torch, pedal and regulator are added in the U.S. ...

I am not against offshore built machines... am just very concerned about reliability and support.... only time will tell how reliable and well supported they turn out to be......
