Eastwood MIG Welder 175 Amp with Spool Gun

Product Review (submitted on April 28, 2014):

I am really not pleased with this Mig 175. The first unit had the following problems, bad gauge (replaced), blew a hose (replaced), face plate peeled off (replaced) wouldn't regulate voltage (unit replaced). Unit was replaced, second unit, crossed threaded tip (trigger and hose replaced), broken internal gas fitting behind drive motor, same problem that Mike had in his review and I think it is a fatal flaw in the design (motor drive unit replaced) and now the gas won't shut off unless I turn the unit off. I sound like the customer from hell, I really just want to be able to use the welder for more than a day without problems. So two units with a total of 7 issues, will the it ever work???????????
