The Lincoln K2185 is a 115 volt, single phase MIG / flux cored wire welder that only requires a 20 amp household circuit for operation.  The user friendly design features 4 voltage stops that range from 35 to 88 amps of output, giving you the control you want and enough power to cover the jobs that will crop up around the house, ranch or farm.  It is incredibly compact and lightweight at just 46lb so you can take it to the work rather than bringing the work to it when necessary.  It’s light enough to haul up a ladder or place on top of machinery for easier access to what needs welding.  Contractors who run into the occasional need for welding on the job site have found a reliable tool in the Lincoln K2185.

The Lincoln K2185 Handy MIG Welder features an adjustable continuous wire feed that keeps you working without interruption, something stick welders cannot offer.  The 4 settings let you set it right every time for mild steel from 24 gauge to 1/8”.  The cold contactor design keeps the wire electrically cold and safe until you pull the trigger to start welding while the fan-cooled design protects the components from overheating.
