The Handler® 187 features a 7-position voltage switch, three more positions than the original Handler® 180. These added settings create a welding arc that more perfectly matches metal thickness and wire diameter than any competitor in its class. The improved arc means less spatter, professional bead appearance, excellent penetration, and minimal post-weld cleanup.
Convenience features include internal storage area for spare tips and a "no tools" quick-change drive roll system with dual grooves to make changing wire diameter easy. A self-resetting thermal overload system protects the Handler® 187 in the toughest applications.
