Everlast PowerPro 236 Tig, Plasma, Stick & Arc Welder
The new PowerPro 236, from Everlast is a TIG/Stick AC/DC Pulse welding and plasma cutting multi process unit that is an economical solution to purchasing separate welding and cutting units.
It is a single phase version of the 3 phase PowerPro 256 with a slightly reduced maximum amperage.
Though one would think that features or performance would have to be compromised to fit them into a single unit, this is not the case.
With a full 230 amps welding and 60 amps cutting power, the compact inverter easily handles the demands of the multi task requirements of such a machine.
The IGBT module takes the IGBT inverter platform to the next level in performance and reliability. As far as the TIG features go, the unit competes head to head in performance and quality.
Easy arc starting and smooth stable arc, AC/DC Pulse and the panel-controlled features make this an excellent TIG welder. Stick performance is quite surprising as well.
With adjustable arc force control, also known as dig, the PowerPro 236 dutifully doles out 200 amps of Stick (SMAW) welding power. The built in 60 amp plasma cutter makes it completely unnecessary to drag additional equipment around the job site or garage. This allows the unit to expertly sever almost any metal up to 24mm thick. The PowerPro 236 shares the same easy arc starting and stability of all of Everlast's units for truly professional performance.
The all-in-one portability that the PowerPro affords is quite an advantage. Gone are the days of large carts and storage areas, for bulky pieces of equipment. The PowerPro can easily slip under any work table, welding cart or slide into any truck tool box for easy transporting. This makes the PowerPro an ideal solution for portable repair businesses trying to put as much equipment on the truck as possible with limited space. Easily run off of many larger welding generators the PowerPro 236 makes quick work of any portable TIG job whether it's steel, stainless or aluminium without the need for expensive High Frequency boxes and special equipment. With a fairly quick turnaround the unit can be changed over to cutting the same material it is welding.
If you are a home hobbyist or a small fabricator, the PowerPro is an excellent choice as well. With full features and great range of power, the small footprint of this machine makes room for other things in your shop that you need as well. We'd suggest looking at the full features and compare the specifications of the unit to other brands' stand alone units. We think you'll find that the PowerPro 236 offers you a highly competitive level of features, performance and price in a single space saving unit.
