Caddy® Mig C160i / 200i
Portable MIG/MAG welding unit with built-in wire feeder for 200 mm spools
Caddy® C160i is used for MIG/MAG welding of mild steels for repair, maintenance and assembly work. This easy to use and powerful unit, offers excellent welding properties and is easy to take along to the job at hand. Great if you are welding in the workshop or on the move.
Advanced design gives you options
Advanced and modern materials provide, lightweight, durable and impact resistant housing with inbuilt cable wraps for ease of transportation. The low weight of 11.4 kg makes easy to move to different indoor or outdoor worksites.
The performance of this unit makes it a superb choice for mild steel welding applications. Perfect for tradesmen working with repair, maintenance or assembly work in the workshop, outdoors or at different sites. Single phase mains connection makes it easy to find a electricity supply. Works equally as well when powered by a portable generator.* The Caddy Mig C160i has optimized per-formance for welding with 0.8 mm wire on mild steels using solid or cored wires.
Trolley - for easier transport of gas bottle and Caddy® Mig.
Automatic function and simplicity
With Caddy Mig C160i you only need to set the plate thickness before starting to weld. Hotter or colder welds can easily be obtained by using the heat adjustment knob.
*To obtain full output use a 5.5 Kva portable generator with automatic voltage regulation
More welding power than ever before
The PFC (power factor correction) gives 30 % more welding power from the same fuse size.

Caddy Mig C160i has an efficient built-in inverter power source. Inside the side panel there is a wire feeder as well as space for the wire spool.
Spool type needed
Wire spool size: inner diameter 51 mm, external diameter 200 mm and width 55 mm.
Recommended wires/gas
ESAB's OK Autrod 12.51 diameter 0.8 mm, for welding mild steels. A high quality copper coated wire for excellent mild steel welding results.
ESAB's Coreshield 15, diameter 0.8 mm, for welding mild steels. A cored wire that builds a slag protection and therefore needs no gas to weld a large variety of mild steels. Change polarity for best result.
Angled panel, shelf for wear parts & tools, grooves for cables and torch storage under transport are just a few design features to simplify your work
