Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lived through 3 days under water! I purchased this lil welder in 2016. Used it few time but was put up after I got a mig. Hurricane florance came through and my whole first floor was under about 7 feet of water for 3day. Today I just got around to trying out some power tools. Mig was dead as could be. But this lil guy fired up and still welds great! So thank you Eastwood for the great quality!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ARC Stability I've owned it a month & used it a few times. Impressed with the arc stability & power for a 110 unit. I've been a certified steam fitter welder for 47 years , & know what i'm talking about. GOOD product for light duty work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eastwood ARC 80 inverts stick welder I only used it once so far but a done great welding wasn't too good it was my fault. Because that was the first time I ever used a welder plus the welding helmet I got made it way too dark to see the product the way I could get a straight well. And I used it on a generator it was easy to move around the welder it was real lightweight and it worked great. And they are fast shipping I think I placed the order for the Father's Day and I received it in about 3 to 4 days time. It was easy to use and it would be good for a beginner.

Can this machine weld aluminum?

Asked by: Diakka
Since this machine is a DC only TIG it will not be able to weld aluminum. You will need to look at our TIG 200 AC/DC or our TIG 200 Digital to gain the AC current to weld aluminum.

  • Inverter Power 20 to 80 amps (90 amp peak)
  • Duty Cycle – 20% at 80 amps
  • Infinite amperage control
  • Electrode Size (in.) - 1/16, 5/64 or 3/32
