Lincoln’s Invertec Stick Welder on Sale

Lincoln’s Invertec V155-S stick welder is an affordable welder that provides a lot of power and options for welders looking for a machine that will outperform the traditional tomb stone stick welders that made Lincoln famous. While the price of some welders can climb pretty far past $2,000 and $3,000, this particular machine
(which is available with a starter kit) costs a little less than $1,000 at Baker’s Gas and Welding. If you  need a solid, middle-price-range stick welder that also delivers some punch with a DC TIG option, take a look at the Lincoln Invertec. Here are some features to consider:

Full Welding Power

You can switch between 120 and 230V power, which ensures that you can weld both thin and thick metal provided you have the right power options in your shop. If you don’t have access to a power supply, it can operate from a portable generator. And speaking of portable…

Light and Portable Welder

Weighing in at 15 pounds, the Lincoln Invertec is extremely light and portable. Slinging it over your shoulder with its strap makes it easy to carry to a variety of work and hobby sites. In addition, it can also plug into a 200 ft. (61 m) 230V extension cord so you can weld just about anywhere within range of a plug. Whether indoors or outdoors, you won’t get stuck in the garage with this welder, unless that’s where you want to be.

Better Arc Strikes

The Invertec’s Hot Start feature is another great addition to this welder that makes it ideal for both beginning and experienced welders. The Hot Start will give you a good burst of power when you strike your arc so there’s little to no chance of getting stuck on your metal work piece. A stuck electrode could ruin your rod or damage your work piece, to say nothing about the time it could take to remove it if it really fastens onto the metal.

In addition, the Auto-Adaptive Arc force feature keeps your welder from sticking to the puddle by modifying the current of your arc while you work. This takes some of the guessing out of welding and will save you from a stuck rod in
 the middle of your puddle.

Thermal and Voltage Overload Protection

When your work gets a little too hot for your machine to handle, thermal and voltage overload protection will shut down your machine in order to protect the internal components from overheating. In other words, they’ll make sure you
don’t have a 15 pound paper weight in your garage. These features are must haves for welders today, as they function as one of the best insurance policies for a welding machine.


The Lincoln trademark F.A.N. system is an on-demand fan that only runs when you need it most. This will reduce noise in your shop and keep interior of your welder clean and in tip top shape. Most of the top of the line welders come with this feature in order to help a welder last longer.

Electrode Options

Besides providing a handy electrode clip, the Lincoln Invertec stick welder provides two different stick modes: soft stick mode and crisp stick mode. Each provides optimal performance with stick electrodes of various types.

Three Year Parts and Labor Warranty

While purchasing a name brand welder like Lincoln is always a safe move, you’ll have the added security that comes from a three year parts and labor warranty that comes with the Lincoln Invertec welder. A welder is an investment you shouldn’t have to make over and over again. When you purchase a machine that
is built to last, the value you receive will continue for years.
