MIG175 Welder and Cart Kit is rated 4.75 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent buy Recently ordered and received the Mig 175, ordering process went very well and items arrived in the time frame that was advertised. Welder and cart were packaged very well and there was no shipping damage which made me very happy since I am on the West coast I was concerned about shipping. The cart took about 20 min to assemble and since I had already purchased Argon I fired up the welder, welded fantastic right out of the box, used the chart on the inside of the door that got me close and with a little lower voltage welded great, I purchased larger bottle of gas and the welder barely fit on the cart since it was tipped back a little other than that very satisfied. Have not tried the spool gun yet but expect it to work as it should. I had shopped prices for the big three brands but since I only use this for my occasional repair and hobby could not justify the prices, I was able to purchase this mig, the 60 amp plasma and the 200 amp Tig for what one of the big three machines would have cost. could not be happier, don't hesitate to go with this welder.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Outstanding performance Not to take away from the performance, but for the price you can't beat this thing! I would put the Eastwood up against any other welding machine out there. I gave a rating of 4 stars, just because there is always room to improve.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mig welding to continue my racing career Well I kinda jumped into this one. I have been a plastic welder for the local natural gas co. For thirteen yearsAnd race ATV's for a hobbie and have been having problems with breaking the steel frame and some of the aluminum safety bars. And have a gasless mig welder and it wouldn't do aluminum so I figured after looking at all the name brands and a spool runner it just shocked me after watching the comparison to the Lincoln mig and this Eastwood price and obvious welds were the final decision for me. I still don't have a cyclinder For the argon but the voltage adjustability make doing the fluxcore wire a lot Easier. Thnx and haven't broke anything since I burnt some wire on my quad. Don't weld much but I've tried stick welding and lose my temper trying to make rods burn. And haven't pulled my hair out since I went mig. Love it and recamend it to anyone wanting to get out and weld some steel. Or aluminum.
