Miller® Maxstar® 161 S Stick Welder 907709

Miller® Maxstar® 161 S is a 160 amp stick welder that weighs only 13 pounds and operates on either 120 volt or 240 input power. 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 (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.

    Comes complete with
  • Maxstar 161 S stick welder
  • 6.5 ft. (2 m) 120-volt and 240-volt power cords
  • Stick electrode holder with 13 ft. (4 m) cable and 25 mm
  • Dinse-style connector
  • Work clamp with 10 ft. (3 m) cable and 25 mm Dinse-style connector
  • Handle/shoulder strap

    What’s the difference between the Miller Maxstar 161 S and the Miller Thunderbolt 160  welder. 
    1 Answer
    The main difference between the two machines is that the Maxstar will run 6010 electrode ( for pipe welding)  well and the Thunderbolt will not run 6010.
