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
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
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
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
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.
