AUTOSTAR MIG 160 COMPACT INVERTER WELDER
The Autostar MIG 160 is specially designed for use in the automotive industry. Supplied with an impressive 3 year warranty, the Autostar range offers great value for money whilst offering excellent welding characteristics and a user friendly interface. An impressive duty cycle of 160 amps at 35%, makes this a great machine for everyday use.
Suitable for welding up to 5mm thick material, the Autostar MIG 160 is ideal for garage workshop and DIY use. Extremely easy to use, this machine has 3 dials on the front panel. One is for amperage control in MMA welding, one for voltage control and the other for wire feed speed in MIG mode. A settings chart is located on the inside of the wire feed door for a very simple starting point for welding parameter settings.
The machine also has a Euro-Torch connection (meaning cost effective spares) and is supplied with a Binzel® MIG torch.
Gas or Gas-Less operation is possible, particularly useful when welding in outside conditions. A knurled roller for flux core gasless welding is available – see related products section below.

THE TBWS VERDICT
Our biggest selling MIG machine, the Autostar MIG comes in at a good price point. Quality is not a compromise either, it comes with a nice MIG torch and the excellent Wilkinson Star warranty, lasting 3 years on parts and labour (machine only). We have sold an awful lot of these machines and we have had very few back under warranty. So, if you are looking for a quality machine on a budget, the Autostar MIG 160 is tough to beat.
