ESAB Caddy MIG C160i - 1ph 230V MIG Welder

The Caddy Mig C160i is an easy-to-use, powerful machine for MIG/ MAG welding mild steels. The unit is also extremely portable, making the Caddy Mig C160i an excellent choice for repair, maintenance, and assembly work – both in the workshop and while on the go.

Made from advanced materials, the Caddy Mig C160i’s housing is lightweight, durable, and impact-resistant. The machine also includes a built-in cable for easy transportation. Weighing a little over 26 lbs (12 kg), the Caddy Mig C160i is the lightest welding unit in its output class. But what really sets the Caddy Mig C160i apart is its performance. The PFC (power factor correction) feature provides 30% more welding power from the same sized fuse.

Operation is a cinch with the Caddy Mig C160i! You simply set the plate thickness, and all of the welding parameters are selected automatically. You can also make the weld hotter or colder on-demand with the with the heat adjustment knob. A single-phase input connection makes it easy to find an electrical source, and the machine performs equally as well when powered by a portable generator. Plus, the Caddy MIG 160i has an efficient built-in inverter power source.

Inside the Caddy Mig C160i’s side panel is a wire feeder that holds a wire spool with an inner diameter of 2 in. (51 mm), an external diameter of 8 in. (200 mm), and a width of 2.125 in. (55 mm). The Caddy Mig C160i is optimized to perform for welding with .030 in. solid or cored wires. The recommended solid wire is ESAB Spoolarc® 86. For cored wire, Allstate’s Shield Plus SP or Coreshield 15 offers great portability with self-shielding wire, eliminating the need for shielding gas.
