Eastwood MIG Welder 175 Amp with Spool Gun
Product Review (submitted on January 31, 2013):
What matters is the welder makes good welds. It's easy to use, and so far it has been reliable. The downside is the cart is flimsy and poorly designed. If I could go back I would buy the welder alone and then use it to build a good cart. The welder has an overall feel of low quality. Like the rubber isn't as strong/thick, some other parts just aren't up to par with the miller/lincoln welders. But I have used miller and lincoln welders and it is just as easy to use and makes just as good or better welds. For the price it is UNBEATABLE. Trust me I did a lot of research. The spool gun has the same cheap feel but it works great for fixing my aluminum sprinkler pipe and I have had no problems so far (it takes some practice to weld aluminum though). Great overall I would and have recommended to others and they also agree. Gets fairly heavy use on a 500 acre farm and no real problems so far after two years. The price with spool gun is amazing. It uses same disposable parts as lincoln mig welder I believe (they have the parts at local hardware stores.) I never write reviews but thought I would cause this was a great buy.
