The 72-pound Burco MPM 165 welder/generator uses a 7.2-hp Honda engine and features a 60-percent duty cycle at 150 amps. The unit's DC/CC welding range is from 40 to 150 amps. The MPM 165's digital signal processing "chopper" technology, says the manufacturer, enhances weld results. The unit's DC chopped auxiliary output allows operation of virtually all standard hand-held power tools. Overall dimensions are compact, measuring 18 inches long, 14.5 inches wide and 16.5 inches high. Accessories include a 10-foot ground cable and a 15-foot cable with electrode.
