Idealarc® DC-1000 230/460/3/60
Multi-Process Welder

Product Number:  K1386-3

If your application requires pure welding power combined with multi-process power, then the DC-1000, with 1300 amps of smooth DC ouput, is your best investment.Designed for semiautomatic and automatic welding, the precise control of the DC-1000 delivers superior high amperage MIG, flux-cored, submerged arc welding and air carbon arc gouging with up to 5/8" (15.9 mm) diameter carbons.

Advantage Lincoln
