Welding a half inch of steel?

How many amps do you need to weld a half an inch of steel.
Lincoln Electric No. K1357, 225 Amps, 25 Arc Volts Stick Welder, Lincoln Electric ORLincoln Electric Century 80GL Wire Feed Welder which would be better for this job?

Can always fall back on mfrs specs,but for frequent relatively heavy welds would go w/ stick.
You can deposit more metal quicker w/ better penetration.
A wire feed might be slightly more versatile , but will not do anything a stick welder cannot.
