    Thermal Arc Raider Pro 10000 Help Makes power at plugs but has low weld output

    The title says it all. I can really use some help to get this running. The unit was flooded in the back of a pickup when It stalled in a creek crossing the water rose and get the welding unit. It was not running at the time. I could really use some direction from experts. All outlets work properly and weld lugs read 60 volts dc it will stick a weak arc and the arc force knob works. The oil light does not come on and the fuel gauge is full of water. The serial number plate is missing is there another spot to get this? The pot that controls arc seems to be working when disconnected from circuit it reads 10k ohms when in ciruit it reads 668 and will go from 0 to 6 volts dc

    ESAB can't find their butt with both hands. Contact Mike Huelsman in Ohio. ( forgot the name of his company ) 419 953-5964 He might be able to offer info the TA Engine Drives. Some still had a lifetime warranty on the Stator until ESAB got the gift of Victor and slashed and burned until Victor was killed off. Good Luck !!!

    More solid advice, good contribution! How long did Victor run engine drives before the merger?

    TA engine driver were out there in the late 80's early 90's. 1st brand to have Honda engines, Stainless body panels and lifetime stators. In the end I am told that all TA engine drives went to Iraq. The Tsunami in Malaysia took the factory and all of the people and that ended the Engine drive and TA transformer welders. It became easier to source from Japan ( Sanrex ) Germany ( Lorch ) and China.
