    A buddy of mine who is a welding instructor showed me this brand. He had never used one before and he told me it is a great deal because it is way cheaper the comparable mig welders from Lincoln and Miller. Anyway I got it and it is downright awesome. Took me a little bit of time to get used to it, but after the learning curve everything is wonderful. The spool gun is great. I had a lot of aluminum that I needed to do. It did a great job. I tell everyone that I know about it.

    After 29 years in the steel fabrication and welding trade. I am very impressed with this machine. I have used many different machines from Lincoln dc 655s to miller 110 units, and this little jewel works perfectly. I have been looking for a small Mig unit for my home but have found that most all small Mig units I have used just do not put out the amps they say. At full power this 175amp unit is smooth and produces a perfect pass with ease and plenty of penetration. It also work equally good at low heat settings on light sheet material. The added spool gun is perfect for aluminum repairs and stainless. But prefer to run the stainless thru the standard gun.
    There are a few little items that seem cheaply made like the wire nuts for the power cables. My suggestion to the end user is make sure that the cable connections are CLEAN and tight. This will reduce the possibility of the plastic cap on the cable nuts from over heating and melting. (Just an observation as I have not had this issue as of yet.)

    With a very reasonable price to start with and great performance, I look forward to putting this machine thru the test of time. Over all I give it a 2 thumbs up!
    Great Job Eastwood! Very Impressed!!!!

    I recieved the welder and the wire feed would not work. I sent it back to Eastwood at no cost to me and they replaced it with a new one. Great service and the welder is every bit as good as the Lincoln 180, it seems to weld better than my Lincoln. Thanks Eastwood. I liked it so much that I bought the Plasma Cutter.

    Had to send a welder back due to the wire feed was not working. Once I got the replacement everthing worked like a champ. Ran side by side with a Lincoln 180 and it seemed to run better and the welds were as good or better. Thanks Eastwood. I liked it so much I went ahead and purchased the Plasma Cutter.

    I've had my welder for 6 months now and I'm very pleased with it. Some people complain about lousy fitment of the front plastic and some other small things. They may be right about that, but I'm not taking my welder to shows. This thing performs flawlessly. You may want to buy a pack of Lincoln tips though. Originals melted easily. I haven't had any problems since I put in the Lincoln tip. What an improvement over my old MIG. I highly recommend this welder for anyone looking for an affordable welder.

    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.

    I have owned a Hobart 175 for over 15 years and was looking to upgrade it and add a spool gun. The cost for this turned out to be $750! Saw the Eastwood unit on sale and reads all the great reviews and decided to try this machine out. First unit came in badly damaged in shipment. Called Eastwood and their customer service was very courteous and helpful. They sent out a replacement right away and had the damaged unit picked up the next day. Hooked up the welder and ran a few beads with both the steel and aluminum and WOW! This is one GREAT machine! This thing lays down a bead better than my Hobart ever did, and I loved it! I have been building cars for over 30 years and look forward to using this machine for many more builds! Now I can even build custom piping, radiator shrouds and oveflow tanks out of aluminum! Thanks to Eastwood, they always seem to come out with something fantastic!

    Welder works great. I had never welded aluminum before but within a few min I was able to get some not bad looking welds. I had one part (gas shield) fell apart right away but when I notified customer service they agreed to send me a new one right away no questions asked. This is by far the best deal around.

    I just purchased this welder back in febuary. I just got around to firing it up. After doing some comparisons, this welder seemed to be the best value for the price. I was right on the money buying this welder. it has all the features of a high end unit and performs exceptional so far. I havent had any problems so far and this machine operates so smooth that it makes it almost seem too easy! I have never had any schooling on welding, but I used to use my dads stick welder when i was younger. I just wish he was still around to try this one out, because this unit would make him look like a professional. I can lay beads with this thing that impressed the shop teacher at the local high school. I say if you want the best value for your money and are looking for a good prchase you wont regret then this is the right one for you!!
