    Eastwood MIG Welder 175 Amp with Spool Gun

    Product Review (submitted on November 22, 2012):

    I needed to upgrade from my Lincoln Weld-pak 110v welder. I looked at many machines, and it came down to either Hobart or Eastwood. The free shipping, spool gun infinite heat control and 3 yr warranty convinced me to pull the trigger on the Eastwood.
    To my surprise the welder showed up 3 days later, Fed Exed to my door.
    I ran a 2lb spool of .023 wire and about 1lb of .030 welding a wide range of materials and thicknesses the first day. This machine did great, you may have to tinker/fine tune your settings, especially on thinner material, but that is where the infinite controls really shine. I have now built a HD welding cart, that holds both my welders, a 200 CU ft bottle, and a 125 CU ft bottle, and a go-kart. I have yet to have a single hick-up or problem. This welder kicks my 110v Lincoln's butt!
    This is not a Miller 211, or a higher end Hobart, like the 230 Ironman, but it is a great machine that has performed as well as any brand name 175/180 mig I have used.
    Good job Eastwood!
