Default Welder for bodywork

I am curious to how much amperage I need in a mig to do body welding and frame welding on my tracker. Is 80 amps enough or do I need more?

I believe it differs from welder to welder. The best bet would look at the welder you are looking for and see what it specifies.

I wish I could help you there... I have had to use a stick welder all these years so welding body panels has always been out of the question. Good luck!

Also check out Xtreme 4x4 on PowerBlock TV they talk about ways to weld and what welders do what they may mention what amperage you need.

More then plenty.

I use a MillerMatic 200, and turn it down to it's 3rd lowest setting (of 16). And use a start/stop method for stitching up sheet metal with very little grinding or post weld work.
