Default Old Hobart Bro's Welder

I bought a vintage Hobart Bro's welder to use it is in good shape trying to find out any information I can on it. The data plate is very worn and I have only been able to get a few numbers off it.The engine information was not stamped on the plate it was left blank. It is powered by a Wisconsin TJD engine. Is this welder AC or DC output? I have never seen one like it.Any help would be great.

Amps:200
AC 110/220 42amps
Model W-225

Post a picture of it, sounds like one that my brother has. We went through it a few years ago and fixed it up and it has worked very well since.

yes pictures would be helpfull. Is there a selector switch to go from dc to ac? that would be a good indication, it sounds like it has aux ac power, is there an ac plug on it? Show pictures of the control panel
