Most peo­ple know a Pre­mier Power on­board welder al­lows you to weld on the trail, ranch, or even drive­way. Most also re­al­ize the built-in in­verter al­lows use of most 110-volt elec­tri­cal de­vices. But not ev­ery­body al­ways re­al­izes you can up the am­per­age and cut through steel like but­ter us­ing cut­ting rod. Chris Durham broke a pas­sen­ger-side axle­shaft U-joint and shaft on a gnarly climb dur­ing Ul­ti­mate Ad­ven­ture 2018 at the North­east Off-Road Ad­ven­tures fa­cil­ity in El­lenville, New York. When the U-joint blew it splayed the axle­shaft ears, pre­vent­ing the bro­ken shaft from pass­ing through the knuckle. Rather than pop off the ball joints, Durham fired up his Pre­mier Power Welder and cut the of­fend­ing ears off with a cut­ting rod, al­low­ing easy re­moval of the busted parts.
