Darin, when I looked inside mine, it didn't have any reactor. It may use the heavy nichrome windings for a "reactor", however. It was always hard to weld with it compared to an AC welder, however! It takes great skill using the 36 volt welder.
Hope you got the scanned info. from my owner's manual. If you need anymore of it, let me know.
