Are the welding leads permanently attached or do they plug in? If permanently attached look for a polarity switch. Permanently attached and no polarity switch would mean it is an AC machine. If both leads plug in then there should be polarity markings on the sockets. No polarity markings would mean it is an AC machine.

Best I can tell from a Google search is that it is an AC welder and maybe a combination battery charger. Relatively small (and cheap) machine as well.
