The Maxstar 161 S offers superior stick arc performance, even when using E6010. It features a digital meter that monitors welding amps and also has Miller's Auto-Line™ that automatically adjusts for input voltages ranging from 120 volts to 240 volts without manual linking.

The Maxstar 161 S comes with Miller's True Blue® 3 year warranty.

  • Auto-Line™ - Allows for any input voltage hookup (120240 V) with no manual linking, providing convenience in any job setting. Ideal solution for dirty or unreliable power.
  • Digital meter for more precise control when presetting or monitoring welding amperage.
  • Portable in the shop or at the job site - at 13.2 lb the shoulder strap allows the end user to easily move from location to location.
  • Fan-On-Demand™ - power source cooling system operates only when needed, reducing noise, energy use and the amount of contaminants pulled through the machine.
  • Thermal overload protection - helps prevent machine damage if the duty cycle is exceeded or airflow is blocked.
  • Single amperage range - allows operator to accurately set amperage on both 120- or 240-volt primary power.
  • Hot Start™ adaptive control - provides positive arc starts without sticking.
  • Low OCV stick is a simple design that reduces the open circuit voltage to 1216 volts when the welding power source is not in use. This circuit design is now built into the Maxstar 161 S eliminating the need for add-on voltage reducers.
  • Power factor corrected (PFC) - for optimum performance especially on 120 volts reduces nuisance breaker tripping.
  • Stick-Stuck detects if the electrode is stuck to the part and turns the welding output off to safely and easily remove the electrode. Menu selectable.
  • Superior stick arc performance even on the difficult-to-run electrodes like E6010.

  • Maxstar 161 S stick welder
