CST™ 280 208-230/400-460 V, Dinse

Designed for Stick/TIG welding pipe and plate in the construction industry, this small, durable, goes-anywhere welder delivers 280 amps of superior Stick performance, up to 3/16” in diameter. LiftArc™ delivers smooth TIG starts without high frequency.

Easy Voltage Changeover
Easy voltage changeover between voltage ranges through a two-position manual switch. Conveniently located on the rear panel, it simplifies voltage change in racks.
Simple To Operate
Simple to operate with a process selector knob which automatically sets the proper dig setting on E6010 and E7018 electrodes providing superior stick performance.
Lift-Arc™ start provides arc starting without the use of high frequency.
4 and 8 Pack Racks
Stand-alone or rack-mounted for construction sites. Optional 4-pack racks, commonly used in construction and shipyards, are available for multiple operator applications . All controls including the power switch are located on front of the machine for easy access.
Wireless Compatible
Compatible with Wireless Remote Controls. Improve productivity, eliminate clutter and cord tangles in the work area. Eliminate cord failure and associated downtime/repair costs and extend the operator’s welding range without adding cord extensions.
Remote Control
Remote amperage control provided through 14-pin receptacle on front of the machine. This permits use of standard amperage control devices.
Twist Lock Receptacles
Tweco- or Dinse-style connectors available. The Dinse-style includes one set of male connectors: the Tweco-style does not.
Adaptive Hot Start™
Adaptive Hot Start™ for Stick Automatically increases output amperage at the start of a weld should the start require it and prevents the electrode from sticking and creating an inclusion.
