    Worked good for the first project! (Posted on 6/19/13)

    The welder worked good for the first project that I built but after that I am constantly fighting the gun attachment to the machine. It's losing the conductivity so I have to keep pushing the fitting into the machine to get a bead to run, very annoying especially for a brand new machine. If it's doing this at a week old how will it be in a year? The worse part is that I can't get anybody to call me back so I can get a new part sent to me. Customer service seems to be a BIG problem with Eastwood, this is my third issue with a product, the first went unresolved because they just didn't care, the second issue got resolved after five calls and a manager finally helped me and now this more expensive item doesn't work and I'm already two calls in with NO response! Are you listening Eastwood?
    I'm not a whiner either, I've been welding for over 35 years and I know when something isn't right.

    I bought this welder almost one year ago, June 2012. At the time, I did not have the money to buy a bottle of gas, so I used it a couple of times for flux core. I hate flux core welding so I just didn't use it anymore. Last month I finally got some gas to use with it, and guess what, the gas valve is stuck open. When the bottle is opened, and machine is on, the gas flows non stop. I called tech support, and had to leave a message. They called me back and said "oh yeah, that's no big deal. We can either send you a new gas solenoid and walk you through changing it out, or we can just send you a brand new welder." I said send me the welder!! Only hiccup was when customer service called to arrange to send me a new welder, the lady was kinda rude, and demanded that I send the old one back BEFORE she would send me the new one. After I explained to her multiple times that I had no boxes, and no way to send the old one back first, without spending 20 or 30 bucks on boxes, she put me on hold, and after a few minutes came back being very nice, and said "ok, just let me know when you get the new one, and we'll arrange to have the old one picked up." I got the new one, It works great, they picked up the old one, and I am very satisfied. If you're considering one of these, there's no need to worry about whether or not Eastwood will stand behind it.

    bought the mig 175 w/ spool gun to weld aluminum with . I have only used it a few times and i worked it pretty hard, so far i have no complaints. it puts out a good weld. i was thinking of going with the Hobart machine im glad that i made the choice to buy this one. I do think the cd video they sent with it needs to be for the same machine and maybe a little welding instructions to get started.
    excellent welder at a great price (Posted on 5/13/13)

    I waited to write this until after I had the unit a couple of months. I do hobby welding and had borrowed a friends Lincoln for much longer than I should have because I fell in love with that unit. After reading these reviews I decided to purchase the Eastwood 175. I'm glad I did because this unit welds as good as a Lincoln or Miller unit and I couldn't be happier. 2 weeks before I bought this one my buddy purchased the Miller AS180 with Spool Gun and gave twice what I paid for the Eastwood, which welds just as good. I'll be buying more Eastwood products.

    I have finally got to use my recently purchased MIG welder. I had no problems getting started and the machine works great. I am in the process of building a small welding table so i can weld most of my stuff while seated. I have not yet tried the spool gun but that is next. I also purchased the $89.00 welding cart which I would advise anyone to do. It is a perfect fit and match for the Eastwood MIG 175. Thanks for a good product!

    I have been welding for 46 years. Just got rid of a smaller Lincoln mig welder because I wanted more power. So far ,about 2 hours of use, I'm very happy with it. The only problem I've had so far is Fedex delivered it to the wrong house. It sat on his porch for who knows how many days before the heighbor called saying there was heavy box on his porch that belonged to me. When I opened it and pulled out the welder the front was damaged. When I got trough to customer service they seemed like they wanted me to fix it. Finally they said they would send a call tag to ship it back. I waited and didn't hear any thing from them for about a week so I called and talked to someone who said "oh you wanted a replacement ?" I said yes and got it several days later, to the right house this time. I know shipping problems were not their fault. The 200 amp ac/dc tig welder will be my next purchase form Eastwood.

    I am a rookie welder and have been using a very seasoned Linde MIG welder on my '59 Chevy truck project. Amazing what late model MIG technology can produce for the price. Could not justify spending 2 to 3 times the cost to buy a brand name welder so, after reading the reviews, decided on the 175. Would recommend to anyone. The only issue I have had with the unit is that the door comes off the hinges every time I open it. Called Eastwood's customer support and they immediately emailed me back and even called me. A new set of hinges is being Fed Ex'd to me now.
