The EZ-TIG 165i inverter-based TIG welder. Designed to be the easiest-to-use, most affordable AC/DC TIG welder ever available, the unit offers numerous benefits to first-time TIG welders. The EZ-TIG 165i features just two controlsone for selecting the metal type and one for selecting the thickness.
Built with inverter technology, the HOBART EZ-TIG 165i ($1,399) is very portable weighing only 50 lbs. The welder connects to 230 V, 1-phase power using the attached standard 6-50P 3-pronged plug and only needs a 25-amp circuit breaker to produce its full welding output of 165 amps (150 amps at 20 percent duty cycle). The EZ-TIG 165i can weld material as thin as 22-gauge and as thick as 3/16-in. in a single pass with its 10- to 165-amp output.The welder comes with a remote foot control and 12.5 ft. Legacy 17 Weldcraft® TIG torch, (finger-tip amperage control sold separately.) Together, the EZ-TIG 165i delivers a stable arc and positive high-frequency arc starts make it easier for beginners to achieve good results.
We hope to have one a long term unit for Street Chopper as well as using it on our M/C First Aid event station (who is already sponstored by Hobart) so we can show you how it works in the real world.
