    This welder had to be returned after only 1 hr of use, however the company replaced the unit within three days. The customer service representative was very helpful. The replacement had a gas leak, once reported the service department sent repair parts and after I installed them it fixed the leak. The welder is finally working to my expectations. The MIG welder is OK and the Customer Service is Outstanding.
    Great welder, THE WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE IVE EVER DEALT WITH. (Posted on 5/17/14)

    Ok where to start its a great welder. putd down a great bead and did great til one day i turned it on and had no gas. I purchased this welder a few months ago for welding in braces and brackets for a four link suspension im designing for my 67 camaro. About 3/4 of the way through the project the cheap plastic gas delivery system (that the hose plugs into) cracked. so i call the tech line which says there either on the line or closed which is a horrible way to be, you cant even hold on the line u just have to leave a message or nothing. so i leave a message and call customer service in which someone answers right away. I stated my problem and told them about how big of a rush i was in to get this project finished, i was assured that the tech service would call me back that day (friday). well no call then a long wait through the weekend and no call monday, so i call back tuesday and explain noone ever called me back to which they say oh ok ill resend it and they will get back to you asap, again no call back that day. i call again the next day furious and explain i know the problem i just want the replacement part or a replacement unit to which im told it has to go through the tech service i ask for a manager whos convieniently not in. he says that he sees all the notes from previous calls and sends it again. i call the tech line again just to get the same were either busy or closed so i leave another message. within an hour i get a call from a tech saying he had gotten my message i left, to which i ask if he had gotten anything from customer service from the last week, he responds no however upon searchin found the notes from my calls. i explain my problem he assures me im right and says as long as i call customer service back the next day before noon that they will overnight my part to me. Great i think. so i call the next morning and customer service says yes i see the notes from the tech and i will get the part and overnight it. i even get a call back later stating that they had pulled the part and it was going to be shipped out. the part should have arrived on thursday which was 3 days ago so once again i have to wait til monday and call back to deal with THE WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE/TECH THAT I HAVE EVER SEEN. and thats bad cause i deal with several a week due to my job.

    At the end of the day im not sure if saving a couple hundred dollars was worth the hassle of this. either way im kinda stuck maybe if i ever recieve my replacement parts i can get back to my projects.

    I'm very pleased with this setup, the capacity for the price is awesome. I used the spool gun basically first thing. It doesn't show it in the pictures or under description but my spool gun had a 4" spool of 4043 wire already in it. The settings for the aluminum welding seem about right which is surprisingly fast metal deposition. The only gripe I have is the included "welding mask". Eastwood shouldn't even bother, just add in the specifics that the purchaser will need to purchase a proper welding helmet before use.

    I'll spare the details of the unit, which are really good for the price.

    The issue I have is with technical support. Only 3 months into ownership, the plastic ring on the machine that sends the gas down the supply hose cracked, thus allowing gas to escape inside the machine. I've left two messages over the past two days with technical support and have gotten no call back. When I called customer service, they tried calling the tech line and said they must be busy. Only technical support can authorize a warranty item. While I appreciate the price point, this is not what I expected after the sale. I hope this was a fluke and speaks nothing of the overall build quality of the machine.

    I’ve used my Mig175 for about three months now, so I think it’s time to write a review. I’m a welder for a railroad for the past 23 years and was needing a garage welder for the different hobbies I’m doing, such as truck restoration, building pull trailers…etc. So far I’ve went through over 30LBS of .24, .30, and .035 wire, and I’m very impressed with the performance. The heat settings are very good, meaning small adjustments didn’t make major changes in your heat. This makes it much easier to dial in the right setting for what you’re working on. The amperage stayed at a constant output to create very smooth puddle, nice and soft. It preforms so well, it’s easy to forget about the duty cycle, though I didn’t experience any heat issues, but remained cautious about it. The build of the welder is very good, even though they are some plastic internal parts. The service department is great. A small issue was taken care of way above and beyond what was needed. I’m very satisfied. This welder has plenty of power to do the job right.

    Eastwood has been a great company to work with and I purchased the mig 175 and the plasma cutter. This review is for the Mig 175 and from day one I had the gas continue to exit the gun for a little over 1 second after releasing the trigger. I called customer service and they told me this was to cool the metal. Sounded reasonable but after more reviews and watching the you tube video I don't see there or anyone else having this issue. I want to control my welds by spot welding in quick burst but the gas would continue to run. So I have a email to customer support to see if there is something wrong with my machine or if this is a item they have. My father has a Hobart Mig and his gas shuts off as soon as you release the trigger and I'd except this to do the same. I am hoping they will find me a remedy. If this gas will shut off I'd give them high stars but after burning through a tank of argon I'm looking to keep as much gas for welding in the tank as possible.

    I bought this welder for the spool gun. I had been using a Linclon for almost 20 years. I had welded some aluminum with the Lincoln but it was frustrating trying to get the aluminum wire to feed properly.

    The first time I tried the Eastwood spool gun I was blown away! It worked better than I imagined it could, and it is fast!

    The Eastwood MIG is more powerful than my old Lincoln. I have since sold the Lincoln, I have no need for it now and the price I got for it just about paid for the Eastwood.

    I was so happy with the Eastwood MIG that I turned around and bout the TIG.
