    Yes.

    Provided you have enough machine for spray transfer. Anything in the 250A+ range and you're good to go.

      Diesel,, if you can get some 92/8 ar/co2, that would be even better, I used to use 95ar/5o2, but that is really hot, I now use the 92/8 as it also welds short circuit great, hope this helps,Paul

        Or 98/2 98% argon 2% oxygen is a spray gas, though you won't be able to short arc with it.

            98/2 ar/o2 is where it's at if you doing a lot of heavy stuff in a production setting.
