Product Overview:

Description

MIG Welding from Eastwood

Get the power you need for big welding jobs at a remarkably low price thanks to the Eastwood MIG 250. This is our most advanced MIG welder that can be used on 20-gauge sheet metal up to ½-inch steel plates. The infinitely adjustable knob allows you to set the amperage anywhere between 50 and 250 amps for greater control. Even at the highest setting, you can weld for up to six minutes before needing a break. State-of-the-art inverter technology means this portable Eastwood MIG welder clocks in at just 46 pounds — half that of similar welders from leading brands.

Each MIG 250 welder comes with a Trafimet ERGOPLUS24 torch and 8-foot cable and 9.5-foot ground cable to help you move around a project. It takes 4-inch or 8-inch spool wire, and with the optional MIG welder spool gun, you can also weld aluminum. Plug this Eastwood welder into any 120V or 240V North American power source to Do the Job Right on automotive restoration. We back our MIG welders with a 3-year manufacturer’s warranty and lifetime tech support.

If you also need the ability to TIG or Arc weld in a single machine, you may want to consider our powerful Multi-Process MP250i Welder.

  • Welds 20 gauge steel up to ½-inch thick plate
  • 120 or 240 volt powered
  • Infinitely adjustable 50-250 amp welding range

Portability from Your Eastwood Welder

This 250-amp MIG welder is one of the most powerful portable machines on the market today. It has the ability to run on 120v or 240v, so you can plug it into nearly any existing circuitry in your garage or shop. This also means you can easily take it to the race track or job site and run it off a generator. On 120v power, you can use up to 140 amps, which is enough for most small and midsize jobs. The efficiency of the inverter means you'll still get great welds even on lower voltages or amp settings. It also can take both 4-inch and 8-inch diameter spools and feed steel or stainless steel wire from 0.023-inch to 0.045-inch. Flux core wire for outdoor welding can be between 0.030 and 0.045 inches in diameter while aluminum wire is limited to 0.030-0.035 inches. A unique wire spool mount is configured to hold either 2-pound or 10-pound spools of wire.

Everything You Need for MIG Welding

This lightweight unit ships to your door via FedEx or UPS, eliminating costly truck shipping freight fees. It comes with a Trafimet ERGOPLUS24 8-foot MIG torch and ground clamp, a shielding gas regulator and hose, extra contact tips, an 8-inch wire spool adapter, a roll of 0.030-inch steel MIG wire and other MIG 250 welding supplies for your shop. The only thing you need to add is a canister of shielding gas.

Instructions

This machine has smart wire feeding technology to prevent forcing excessive wire into the start of the weld. When the machine is not welding and feeding wire, it will feed wire at a slow fixed speed for approximately five seconds, and then speed up to max speed. This is to quickly feed wire through the torch. Once the machine senses that it is welding it will automatically run at the preset wire speed that the user has set on the machine. Do not be alarmed when the wire feeds slowly while not welding.

Safety Information

Always follow manufacturer's instructions for proper safety requirements when performing welding tasks.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Some recent updates Great welder for the cost, has a good duty cycle, updates inclued quick connects to change polarity, I've bin using this welder for weaks and I'm happy with its performance, I've bin welding for 40 yrs and have used many welders. Being portable for a 250 amp makes it that much better. EastWood carries good quality tools.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally happy I have used this welder now at least 50 hours since I got it a month ago. I absolutely love it. Been doing mostly 3/16 inch steel but have also done as light as 26 gauge sheet metal and some stainless with the same.035 wire. I would recommend this machine for any home shop but I have mine at work and use it daily. Can’t recommend it enough

Are the consumables proprietary to Eastwood or could I possibly find them at a local store if needed in a pinch?

Asked by: ApexSun
They aren't considered proprietary. If you find another brand or consumables in general that state they are for a Trafimet ERGOPLUS24 Torch- they should fit.

I have an old plug for an outside ac its 240 on 30 amp breaker would this run off that without damage

Asked by: joejoe
Yes, but you'll be limited on your top end power. For full power always use a 50A setup.
