  • Auto-Line™ - Allows for any input voltage hookup (120 - 240 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 12 - 16 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.
  • X-CASE transportation and storage case protects your Maxstar 161 S in the shop, in the truck or on the job site.

    Comes complete with
  • Miller® Maxstar® 161 S stick welder
  • X-CASE™ transportation/storage case
  • 6.5 ft. (2 m) 120-volt and 240-volt power cords

      A little 5p burner

      I gave this review 5 stars for a few reasons, first the machine does burn 6010 really well ,even on 120 volts.Now it is not a big bad pipe welding machine,but for repair work it is the ticket. I have run it about 10 hours of welding time, building tank frames. Runs 7018s very well. Used 6010s just to see what it could do, does fine with them. The cooling fan comes on right away, doesnt seem to be a problem. Overall this is a very good repair/small fab type machine. The first machine I received would not power up the output, Bonnie at Cyberweld and Boone at Miller couldn't have been more helpful ,machine was replaced ASAP. That is another reason for the 5 star review, great service and great people to deal with and a nice little machine. Thanks,B.G.

      Overall this is an excellent machine

      I really enjoy using the 161s. I do part time work for an organization that has been using several of Millers 150s machines for several years now. We weld literally tons of 1/4 and 3/8 inch steel together for our projects. We operate the 150s machines with Generac 8 KW generators in very remote locations.

      We can weld with 1/8 inch 6011 all day long. Many times we weld for long periods of time just as fast as we can burn a rod and replace it with a fresh one. The 150s machines never fail, and are tough as nails.

      I decided I wanted one for my own personal use. But when I looked, I could find almost no new 150s machines for sale on the net. So it seems to me that the 161s must have replaced the 150s machine???

      Anyway I decided to order the 161s for my own personal use. So far I haven't put the 161s through the abuse our organizations 150s machines have been through. But the 161s seems to be every bit as good as the 150s machine and perhaps even better. However, see the pros and cons below.
