    Excellent for a very good price (Posted on 9/19/2010)

    I took the risk to import one in Mexico because, including all costs, the price was less than one half of the 180 Lincoln with spool gun sold here without true warranty. Too tempting...
    First, the general quality is very good, the details speak by themselves:
    - Very nice shipping pack with double carton boxes and a thick layer of PVC foam.
    - Good metal case well painted.
    - Good hinges.
    - Very clean inside (see the pics). 2 transformers...
    - Nice wire feed system with a very convenient change of groove size without tools.
    - The blower moves a lot of air and cools very efficiently the welder.
    The manual has to be modified for the changes of the wire feed. The gas setting recommendation of 25-30 CFM is far too much, in most cases 15-20 CFM is enough.
    A chapter about the change of liner and gas diffusor must be added.
    The manual is well written and clear.
    How it works? Very nicely. The wire feeding is strong and it's very easy with the sensitive potentiometers of amperage and wire speed to get the best tuning. Excellent penetration.
    The spool gun looks at first sight cheapo, but it's a false impression, it's well made and works flawlessly. And yes it welds aluminum from 14 gauge to 1/4.
    Small tricks:
    - Use an oversized tip (035 for a 030 wire) and clean the aluminum with a SS brush and ethilic alcohol. Preheating to 300°F solves a lot of problems in big pieces.
    - Argon can be used for welding SS, so no need for a trimix gas. Con: the heat affected zone will be greater.
    - Drill bits of 025, 030, 035 and 040 are a good investment for maintaining the tips.
    Tips and nozzles are common Tweco type you can find everywhere. The gun is the ordinary chinese standart, so you can get a longer one easily. But it's better to have a cart and to use the shortest possible gun...better wire feeding.
    With a 30 day money back and a 3 years warranty, the risk is small...I think that this welder will last if the electronic components are of the same quality as the outside welder.
    The welder uses only 23 measured Amps at max and a 25 Amp double breaker will be the good one. The 50 Amps plug is enormous, I changed it for 20 Amp industrial one as I need extensions.
    The welder works as well as a 180T Lincoln.
    And Eastwood has been very serviceable with all the complications of invoice, payment and shipping.

    I received my welder and it didn't work. Tech said it might be the hose and trigger assy, I tried the spool gun and the welder than worked. Eastwood sent a complete new unit witch cured the problem. I tried the spoolgun with Aluminum wire and to my surprise my first efforts with MIG on Aluminum weren't half bad. I'm sure with some practice, it will work well. It works very well on Steel, partly due to it's very steady wire feed.

    This is a great welder! The compact design makes the welder an asset for off site work provided the power supply is available. It does the job of much more bulkier and heavier welders. The efficiency is superb, excellent penetration with the ability to perform a full range of welding styles on various type metals with little or no stand-by. The duty cycle allows for pretty much continuous welding with little effort for most automotive applications. The added ability to handle aluminum is an included feature not available (except at an added cost) with other machines.

    I was aprehensive when I first got my Eastwood 175 mig welder. I followed the directions that came with the welder along with suggested settings for different metals under the lid that you
    unlatch on the welder. I ended up with a pretty good looking weld when I practiced welding on some scrap metal I had in my shop. If you want professional results at a very reasonable price, get yourself a Eastwood Mig welder.

    I own many MIGs and TIG welders, Lincoln sp100, precision Tig 175 and Miller Matic 140 and was ready for something with more amperage and that could weld (mig) alluminum. Wow is all I can say, best bang for the buck hands down. I have used my Mig 175 for a month so far and can't believe how much better it welds compared to the above. The only thing that needs future improvement is the mig gun cable lenght, as it's a little short compared to my others. Great all around buy for almost half the price!

    My welder arrived damaged. Called and a agent was very courteous and immediately shipped another and made arrangements to pick up damaged welder. Was happy with the welder but more happy with the service I received.

    I have only used the flux wire and have not bought a bottle yet but everything looks up to par. It welds just fine. After 45 years of stick welding it will take a little while to get used to the MIG. I was disappointed with the quality of the cart...

    Was looking at 220 welders and Eastwood introduced their line.
    The welder worked out of the box, the settings are true to the situation, power is consistent and the quality is the same as much more expensive name brand welders.
    Good job on a competitive product.
