The new Wildcat® 200 welding generator from Miller Electric Mfg. Co. is a compact unit that produces 6,500 W of peak generator power and 200-amp DC SMAW and GTAW output. It features a fully enclosed case that protects the engine and internal welding components from damage by falling objects, dust, and debris.
The generator uses a 14-HP Subaru engine with a 7-gal. gas tank that provides 12 hours of run time using a 1/8-in. stick electrode.
Users can select the amperage range and electrode type using a coarse range switch and then adjust the fine control dial to tune in the optimal arc. The generator also features a front panel ignition switch and a backup recoil start in the rear.
An auto-idle feature automatically senses when the unit is not being used and reduces fuel consumption and noise levels.
With a single 220-V outlet and four 120-V outlets, the generator can run a variety of tools and accessories, including plasma cutters, air compressors, pumps, and lights.
