For welders who work in a shop or out in the field, Miller Electric Manufacturing Company is offering the industry’s first all-in-one wire welder/generator. The new product is called the Renegade 180.

It is operated by using its built-in generator or by 230-volt, single-phase wall power. The Renegade 180 eliminates the need to own both a welding generator for field welding and a traditional MIG welder for the shop. 

The welder/generator can weld mild steel from 24 gauge, 5/16 inch and produce 5,000 watts peak power to run power tools, lights and even a plasma cutter. It comes with a 12-foot welding gun; however, the optional Spoolmate 3035 spool gun and extension allows the gun to reach up to 45 feet away from the power source.

The Renegade can be configured to weld steel using the MIG or FCAW process. In addition, the Spoolmate 3035 or Spoolmate 100 spool guns enable the Renegade 180 to weld aluminum along with both mild steel and stainless steel.

Available in recoil or electric start, the Renegade employs a 10-horsepower Kohler engine with a 1.8-gallon fuel tank, which allows it to run for up to three hours under a continuous load of 3,000 watts.

The unit is compact and is covered by Miller’s True-Blue, three-year factory warranty. For more information, call Miller at (800) 426-4553 or click here.
