    Default P&H Welder WNT80

    I recently came across a P&H WNT80 Welder paired to a Wisconsin TF engine. The lady is wanting $450 for it and was curious on how much these welders/engines go for. When I went and looked at the welder I could not get the engine to turn over by hand assuming it’s cause the exhaust was not covered all the way and it’s been sitting out in the weather for 2 months according to her. The spark plugs did have a little rust on them so I figured the engine was froze she did say it turned over 2 months ago but her son fell ill and it’s sat since then. There’s not much on WNT80’s on the web so figured I’d ask here. I will post some pictures below.

    I have a P&H Bug. Has an Onan, 200 amp. Best portable welder I've ever used. It will weld circles around anything modern.

    As far as value, if it were working$3-400. Froze up, $100 tops. The TF is a great motor, but obsolete. Parts will be new old stock or salvaged. I have the same problem with my Onan. Since sCummins bought out Onan, they cut all support for them.

    Current value? $200/ton, minus delivery cost to the salvage yard. If you have a need for an engine drive welder, buy a running Lincoln SA200. If you have need for a project, buy a non-running SA200. Either way, you will have something that will sell when you get tired of it and parts are available.

    Hey Mom, would you go out and put a coffee can over the exhaust stack on the welder?
    Sounds like a project to me. Engine could be a rusted mess internally.

    Don't get something odd ball and obsolete, SA200's aren't that much in project condition and you have the most common vintage engine driven welder.

    The old P&H where fair welders, we had a couple of them years ago. a hundred bucks would be fair, you could pull the head on the engine and check it out, if its only been 2 months I would drought there would be much damage, probably a little penetrant soaking and she would free up.
