    PowerTIG 200DV and 6010

    Good evening,

    Just curious if the PowerTIG 200DV is capable and designed to run 6010 rod... or, is it only designed to run 6011 ??

    Thank you

    Good morning,

    So, the front page of the manual is wrong when it states "Digitally controlled Dual Voltage AC/DC PulseTIG/Stick Welder"

    Now I am confused...please clarify.
    Thank you

    Ok,
    went to the website... I think I see what you are saying... The PowerTIG 200 is really just supposed to be used as a TIG machine but, you can do stick with it if you want. ... And, the POWERARC 200STI is really meant for stick welding..but, you can hook up a TIG torch to it and TIG if you want to.

    Is that correct for how your model line up is based?

    Thank you

    The use of 6010 is being replaced in the industry, and in general purpose welding, it isn't really needed for basic fabrication. It will be around forever, but the use of it is declining in favor of TIG root, 7018 all the way out, and dual shield. The unit excels with rods like 7018, 7014 etc. It's just not designed for cellulose based rods. Depending upon brand and skill, you can run E6011 ok. But it is among the smoothest with 7018.

    Digitally controlled doesn't have anything to do with it. The 200DV is currently digitally controlled, though it has input knobs on the machine.

    We have various models of our PowerARC line. Different functions are available for different models. Some are stick oriented, with TIG capability, some offer equally professional capability in either TIG or Stick modes. Lift start TIG with TIG rig is done everyday out in the field. So some people might disagree with what is more important or more functional with different welders. That is why we offer plenty of choices to get what you want or need.
