Miller Maxstar® 161 STL TIG/Stick Welder Package 907710001

Miller Maxstar® 161 STL TIG/Stick welder package comes complete with 150 amp TIG torch, TIG accessories, flow gauge regulator, gas hose, stick electrode holder, power cables and X-CASE. It is capable of up to 160 amps of DC welding output. It weighs only 13 pounds and operates on either 120 volt or 240 input power. The Maxstar 161 STL features Miller's Lift-Arc™, which initiates the TIG welding arc without using high frequency. The TIG arc is struck when the tungsten electrode is lifted off of the weld piece.

The Maxstar 161 STL also offers superior stick arc performance, even when using E6010. It has Miller's Auto-Line™ technology that automatically adjusts for input voltages ranging from 120 volts to 240 volts without manual linking.

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

  • 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.
  • Lift-Arc™ provides TIG arc initiation without the use of high frequency.
  • Full function remote control for precise amperage control for critical welds on thin materials (6-pin fingertip or foot control available - sold separately.)
  • Built-in gas solenoid eliminates the need for a bulky torch with a gas valve.
  • 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.

    NOTE: This is a DC welder ONLY. It CANNOT weld aluminum.

    Comes complete with
  • Maxstar 161 STL TIG/Stick welder
  • 6.5 ft. (2 m) 120-volt and 240-volt power cords

    kg700r@gmail.com why won't the 161 stl weld aluminum, the lift arc system? What would the foot control offered do? Control voltage but not start the arc? Thanks, bewildered by local salespeople
    1 Answer
    Maxstar 161 STL TIG/Stick Welder Package 907710001 can be enabled to initiate arc start through the foot pedal, this has to be done through the menu on machine. The machine can not tig aluminum because it has only dc weld output. For aluminum you need ac output with high frequency.

    Worked better than expected
    Machine worked well on 110 but doubled its performance on 220. Used 7018 1/8 rod as a test and worked well. The lift arc tig was easy to adjust to. Will recommend this machine to anyone
