    Best Christmas Present since the Red Ryder BB gun (Posted on 8/21/2012)
    Review by Alaskagoldman
    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.
    All I can say is WOW! (Posted on 8/1/2012)
    Review by Crazicop
    I was uncertain with the purchase but thought with the 30 day money back guarantee, why not try. I did try to purchase it through the website and for whatever reason paypal had a hick-up. I called customer service and they were super helpful. I had a coupon code for free shipping but customer service was able to find one for me with $40 off and free shipping. Their customer service is worth trying this machine if you are even a small bit skeptical. Everything I've read on this machine lead me to believe it was a good welder for the price. I've used the blue brand and the red brand wire feed welders that are in the same class. This welder welds the same if not better! I am completely impressed with it and very glad I purchased it. The purchase also saved me that little extra that I can use else where in the shop! Plasma next!
    Love the Welder / Hated the Cart (Posted on 7/28/2012)
    Review by Corrosion
    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...........
    Love it (Posted on 7/24/2012)
    Review by Mattie
    My only complaint so far is the nut on the guns tube came loose so I had to pull the gun apart and tighten it down and the DVD they sent wont play on any of my DVD players.
    My first 220 volt welder and so far its melting metal like butter. I have no complaint for extra power like I did on my 110volt welder.
    Fantastic welding machine (Posted on 7/22/2012)
    Review by Bigbopper1959
    Got this welder a couple of months ago and have been using it on varying thicknesses of mild steel, it has a wide range of adjustments to make smooth and effective welds. Have purchased Millermatics and Lincolns in the past for a company I managed, for my home shop I couldn't afford those high priced units. The Eastwood MIG 175 is perfect for my needs and is affordable,haven't tried the spool gun yet, I'm sure it will work just as well.
    Thanks Eastwood!!!
    MIG 175, Great product (Posted on 7/18/2012)
    Review by Madawg
    Recently purchased a MIG 175 welder for a car fabrication project. Easy to set up (works better with shield gas instead of flux core wire) with a little practice I could produce a good quality weld. A nice feature of this welder is the adjustability of the weld voltage and wire speed. You can "fine tune" the welder to produce a good weld with little difficulty. Overall the MIG 175 is a good bang for your buck.
    great welder (Posted on 7/17/2012)
    Review by Richard
    This is my first MIG welder. I have never even held one in my hand before this. The only welding I have done is with TIG and only small part repair for about 20 years. The first few welds I made with this machine looked okay but after about 30 minutes, I was welding small pieces of 16ga. material together left and right. I was really having fun learning what to do and how to do it. Using a chart that shows what to adjust if the weld looks a certain way, I made changes to the settings. I could fine tune the ark to do exactly what I wanted to do with the infinity variable power knob, a lot like the foot peddle on a TIG machine. Thank you Eastwood for a well built machine.
    Neat (Posted on 7/5/2012)
    Review by NonWelder
    This welder is my first welder as well as my first attempt at welding. I set this up and read the recommended settings and laid my first tack welds. I was very happy not only because the machine works but because the metal stuck! This machine even convinced my wife she could weld so she tried it too. Yes, naturally hers looked better than mine (She might read this).
    Overall, I am very pleased with this purchase and the quality, I am going to buy the plasma cutter as well. Hopefully I can be as happy with that as I am with this welder.

    Awesome (Posted on 7/1/2012)
    Review by mrgoodwrench
    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.
    Very impressed! (Posted on 6/29/2012)
    Review by Dino
    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!!!!
