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

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

Click here for product 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm amazed! This is one awesome machine. Received it on Tuesday. Got it all setup. 1st job on Saturday. Set welder to my usual settings and bam. This machine is as good as an over priced big name brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mig 250 Almost perfect rig. Longer leads and this would be perfect.
Date published: 2022-10-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plenty of heat on 120V I’ve really enjoyed using this Machine, I wish it had the bigger B wire drive roller from the mp250 and inductance control but overall it’s simple and lays down good looking welds. I’m glad Eastwood is stocking parts and getting serious about their support, with a 3 year warranty I do believe it’s the best deal on the market.

Is there a longer torch lead available? 

Asked by: Andy287
There is a 15 ft. torch option available separate which can be found here: https://www.eastwood.com/eastwood-mp250-mig-welder-torch.html. Please be aware that if this torch is used- .030" is the smallest wire that can be feed through this properly because of its length.

If using 120vac (20amps) option, what thickness of steel will the 250 unit weld?

Asked by: Roger
The max we recommend for 120V only is 1/8" thick.
Answered by: Nick BC
Date published: 2022-10-20

The reference sheet mentions 'e71t-11 flux core wire and also .045" for heavier work. I do not see .045 flux core listed for sale on your page. Is it hidden, or do you not offer it? If you dont carry it I'm guessing anywhere else that sells 8' spool?

Asked by: Paul
Unfortunately we do not offer any. Any brand should work as long as it is a a 4” or an 8” wire spool.
Answered by: Kelly H
Date published: 2022-10-12

How does it switch for 120 too 240? 

Asked by: Old welder blew up
There is an included adapter cord to adapt the 240v NEMA 6-50P plug to a 120v NEMA 5-15P plug. Once you plug it in the welder automatically detects which voltage is being used you're good to weld.
