Tough Guns
To meet the demands of welding applications ranging from light- to heavy-duty, Tregaskiss offers two brands: TOUGH GUN MIG Guns and TGX MIG Guns. Both MIG guns feature Tregaskiss' exclusive TOUGH LOCK Retaining Heads with Dual Taper Technology, a tapered design that locks the contact tip securely in place and keeps it centered to provide consistent weld quality.

TOUGH GUN MIG Guns are designed specifically for welding on heavy-duty applications, including those with extended arc-on times and ones in harsh or abusive environments. Available in 350-, 450-, 550-, and 650-amp air-cooled models, and 400- and 600-amp water-cooled models with cable lengths ranging from 10- to 25-feet or in custom lengths.

For light- to medium-duty welding applications, Tregaskiss designed its TGX MIG Guns for welding thinner materials and on applications with short arc times, including hobby applications or repair and maintenance jobs requiring tacking or shorter length welds. These MIG guns have a standard duty gooseneck insulator and nozzle along with a polymer-armored gooseneck and are available in 10-, 12-, and 15-feet cable lengths.

Hands-Free Disconnect
Do you have a hard to access battery? Are you sick of having to take apart half of your vehicle to maintain, charge, or jump your ride? Rad Rides By Troy has the solution to these problems with their All-Inclusive Voltage Kit. This includes charging lugs with bezel, remote battery shut off, billet battery tray, and an XS Power D975 Battery.

The first part of the solution is a remote lug charging station. It comes in either a flush panel bezel mount or a frame mount depending on where you want to mount it. This allows you to service your battery or jump start without tearing your vehicle apart.

The next part is a remote key fob-operated battery shut off. It allows you to disconnect your battery for storage, transport, or safety without ever picking up a wrench. Simply click the key fob to connect or disconnect the battery. Whether in your garage, at a show, or even at the grocery store it acts as a major theft deterrent. It is near impossible to start you ride with the battery disconnected. The switch is wired into the system after the charge lugs and is rated for an amazing 1,100 amps. That way you can tend to your battery without risk to any of your electrical components. The best part is the shut off monitors your battery voltage; if it drops below 11.8 volts while at rest, the system disconnects automatically to save enough power to get you started again.

The final parts are an XS Power D975 compact battery and a billet battery tray. Don't let the small size fool you; the D975 can deliver 1,000 initial cranking amps for 15 seconds!
