Warranty*


With a 2 year unlimited warranty, covering parts and labour, and supported by an Australia wide service network, you can be guaranteed you’re buying reliability and performance.

*Power source only.

Generators*

Generators used to power this equipment must have a minimum capacity of 10kW continuous.

Due to variation between generators by different manufacturers, it is impossible for WIA to validate operation from all generators. Therefore, WIA recommend that operation of equipment on the generator is confirmed before purchasing either welder or the generator.
