OTC SW-101 Mini Welding Tractor

OTC SW-101 Mini Welding Tractor

(OP)
I am looking for any information on this little wonder from my past. Better yet, I'd like to locate an actual unit. I ran about 8 of these in the early 1990s with great success, using SAW process.
Thanks!

Thanks MintJ,
Unfortunately there are no live links on the page so that small picture is all I get. It looks more robust than the little SW-101, which could do MIG and SAW, but only up to 3/32" wire size, and only on 33-lb spools, but it was pick-upable and perfect for go-anywhere flexibility. We paired them with the venerable Lincoln DC-600.
I can't find even a single picture of it. I guess that because this was before the interweb arrived, it didn't really exist.

RE: OTC SW-101 Mini Welding Tractor

Well, it's confirmation that welding tractors from them still exist, possibly.

The "Support" link on the US site claims "Long-term support: Support for current and previous generations of solutions–we stand by our products."

Give them a call. Ask questions. Ask to talk to someone in Japan.

I've emailed them weeks ago but no response. Time to start working the phone.
