  • Eastwood 175 Amp MIG Welder w/spool gun
Eastwood 175 Amp MIG Welder w/spool gun is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 209.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from exellent value for the price I recently purchased the mig 175 from EW. and found this welder everything they claim it to be. Weather you are welding vertical, horizonal, downhand or overhead this is a great little welder, It took a few adjustments to get the feel for this unit in out of position welding. I also like the fine tuning you can get which some of the other name brands do not have. Working in the industrail field for 41 years fabraciating food processing equipment this little unit is the easiest to use of all the little welders that are portable. The only thing I would like EW to design is a cover to keep the dust and grime off the unit when not in use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Welder / Hated the Cart My welder was damaged. Not a mark on the Carton. Found the Face plate cracked, after opening the carton and removing the unit from the foam inner packing? Had to be damaged when packaged... Automated packing I guess? I live 40 miles From the Store so I called, and spoke with Ivan, and he was going to Ship a new unit ASAP. I added, I was not to impressed with the Cart. So I asked if I could pick up the Replacement, at the store. He said Come on down. He listened to my complaints on the cart, and got me an up-graded Cart, for my inconvience. Thanks Ivan, For........... DOING THE JOB RIGHT

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Christmas Present since the Red Ryder BB gun I drooled over this welder for over a year while I was taking a welding class. Wife decided it would be a good Christmas Present for me and I have to agree with her opinion. This welder performed as well or better than the Miller Mig machines I learned on. My only suggestion is that Eastwood make a longer cable for the gun available as an option. I'm sure the shorter length adds to the reliability and smooth operation but many times a longer cable would be much more useful when you just can't get the cart any closer, like welding inside of a car body. No regrets here and I just ordered the spot welding tip and pliers!!! This is a great tool for car builders and restorers.

Great welder and I need to buy a different extension cord than the one I have.It is a 30 ft 220v 50amp 8gauge, seems a bit overkill. I would like a 50 ft or maybe as short as a 25ft. What are the minimums (amps&gauge) for either respectively?

Asked by: Flip1
We sell both a 25 ft & a 40 ft. extension cord: http://www.eastwood.com/welder-extension-cord-25-ft.html & http://www.eastwood.com/eastwood-40-ft-welder-extension-cord.html

I have the 175 but haven' gotten to play with it yet. But I have a clutch arm from a 1954 Chevy that has worn a groove in the push rod hole. The arm is a 1/4" thick steel. Can I weld up the deformity, and dress it up?

Asked by: Bobmo2
This unit can certainly weld up to 1/4 steel.

Under the settings chart for this welder 1/4" aluminum is blanked out with dashes, ---, however the specs on the machine say it will weld up to 1/4" aluminum and comes with a spool gun. Which is correct, the stated specs or the Chart? Thanks.

Asked by: R O B W
Sorry for the confusion. You can weld 1/4" aluminum. You would need your settings to be on J-10; it will just weld this thickness slower- but its certainly capable.

Asked by: Speedfuzion
The MIG 175 is a 220v only unit and will not operate on 110v.

Does it have all the components to use as a aluminum welder or do you need more equipment ? 

Asked by: Crow71479
This will come with everything you need to weld aluminum except the 100% Argon gas and bottle.
