Eastwood Elite 200 Amp Multi-Process AC/DC MP200i Welder

Product Overview:

Description

The Multi-Process Machine That Does It All, Even TIG Weld Aluminum!

Finally a TIG welder with professional features that can also MIG and Stick weld. Most multi-process machines are MIG units that only offer the option to TIG weld steel and it's often scratch start without a foot pedal. Eastwood has raised the bar with this MP welder that not only has MIG and Stick options but is a fully functioning TIG machine with high frequency start and rocker style foot pedal so you can TIG weld steel, stainless and aluminum. It's like buying a quality TIG machine that can also MIG and Stick weld!

When you want a Multi-Process machine that's built to deliver great results on both steel and aluminum with no compromises, you need the Eastwood Elite MP200i AC/DC welder. It has all of the features of a standard AC/DC TIG Welder like High Frequency Start and a Rocker Style Foot Pedal so when you switch from MIG to TIG you know you're going to get the same great results you'd expect from a dedicated TIG machine.

When you're doing a full-scale auto restoration, sometimes one welding function, whether it’s MIG or TIG, isn't going to be enough. This machine is completely plumbed for MIG and TIG welding, and the cart holds a gas bottle for each so you can almost instantly switch between functions without changing hoses and regulators like you would with other units. That means everything stays connected and ready to weld, and with a flip of a switch you can go from MIG to TIG welding when you're working on body panels, roll cages, custom-fab parts or other work.

Weld thin sheet metal or up to 3/8-in. steel and aluminum using this versatile machine. You can also stick weld or add an optional spool gun for MIG welding aluminum.

The Eastwood MP200i Multi-Process 200 Amp AC/DC Welder Features:

  • Operates on either 120 or 240V
  • MIG and TIG weld steel, stainless and aluminum
  • IGBT inverter based power supply
  • MIG weld thin sheet metal to 3/8 inch thick steel and stainless
  • TIG weld steel, stainless and aluminum up to 1/4 inch

The rated Duty Cycle refers to the amount of welding that can be done within an amount of time. The Eastwood Elite MP200i when TIG welding has a Duty Cycle of 50% at the full 200 Amps. It is easiest to look at your welding time in blocks of 10 Minutes and the Duty Cycle being a percentage of that 10 Minutes. If welding at 200 Amps with a 50% Duty Cycle, within a 10 Minute block of time you can weld for 5 Minutes with 5 Minutes of cooling for the welder. If the Duty Cycle is exceeded, the welder will automatically shut off, however the fan will continue running to cool the internal components. When a safe temperature has been reached, the welder will automatically switch the Welder output back on. To increase the Duty Cycle you can turn down the Voltage Output control.

IMPORTANT NOTE: When setting up the machine for TIG welding, ensure that the Ground Cable and Clamp are connected into the Positive (+) Connection (Page 22 of the instructions). TIG welding is an Electrode Negative process, and the Ground Cable must be installed in the Positive (+) Connection.

The original manual (Rev 1 on back of booklet) incorrectly states the opposite connection method. The image in the booklet is correct. Please click the link above for the revised instruction sheet.

Safety Information

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

Accessories

What is the difference between this Elite MP200i AC/DC machine and the older Elite MP200i (20569)?

This unit has a lot of additional features that make this a more versatile machine. This new unit can TIG weld aluminum while the older unit can only TIG weld steel. This unit comes with a rocker style foot pedal for precise amperage control for TIG welding while the older unit does not have a foot pedal and relies on the torch trigger to turn the amperage on and off and doesn't have the ability to raise and lower the amps as you are welding.

This newer unit comes with casters attached to the machine and doesn't need a cart. It also holds two gas bottles. It also is fully plumbed for two bottles and doesn't require hoses to be changed when going from MIG to TIG welding. The older unit must be set on a cart and hoses must be swapped when changing welding functions. The newer unit also comes with an upgraded flex head torch with gas lens kit for the best welds, even in tight areas.

What is High Frequency Start for TIG welding?

High Frequency Start (HF) allows the operator to position the tungsten electrode near the metal to be welded and simply press the torch trigger or foot pedal to start the arc. HF is typically found on professional TIG welding machines with AC/DC function that also allows you to weld both steel and aluminum. This is a preferred method over lesser units that use a Scratch Start system that is not user friendly because it makes the operator touch the tungsten to the metal to be welded to start the arc. This makes it very difficult to maintain a good clean tungsten because it can easily stick to the material to be welded.

What does AC/DC mean in TIG welding?

DC polarity means the machine can weld steel. AC means it can weld aluminum. An AC/DC machine has the capabilities to weld both steel and aluminum and is typically the preferred machine for fabrication because of the ability to weld both materials.

What is the best way to sharpen a tungsten?

A dedicated grinder should always be used to sharpen a tungsten. If you use a standard bench grinder that is used to grind other metals, the debris from the grinding wheel will contaminate the tungsten and create a bad arc and poor welds. We suggest a dedicated hand held TIG Tungsten Grinder to sharpen tungstens and get the best TIG welds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive The tig welding side is awesome honestly runs just as good as a miller, ive used it on aluminum boats all the way up to 1/4in alu. stainless runs beautiful aswell. mig is not as impressive but still well worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked great for me Although I’ve only used it once since purchasing. The machine did just fine with tig aluminum and stick welding. Ran both for a good 10 min straight with no drop out or shut off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Welder Couldn’t be more happy with the MP200I. I wish I had gotten it sooner. If your on the fence about getting it you will not be disappointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clyde So far so good still trying to learn the welder but works great

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Welder Eastwood welders have always been good to me, I sold my well used and perfect running Eastwood 135 to my neighbor after purchasing this welder. I wanted a machine that could it all, and this fit the bill nicely. I run a small business and fabrication is the majority of it. Arc stability for tig on DC and AC/DC is just as good as my lincoln precison tig 225. Currently running .030" mig wire and it penetrates well enough on what I use it for that I don't see myself switching to the larger .035" wire, but I have the option to do so if needed. The fan only runs when it needs to, so that's wonderful to the ears. I was eyeballing this welder for the past six months and was ready to spend the $2,500 on it, the day I went to purchase it it was on sale for $1,499. Take my money...... This is a fantastic welder, just like their small mig welders. If you could blindfold someone they wouldn't be able to tell the difference between the red and blue welders out there. If I could change one thing about this machine it would be to have the display and visible settings of the lincoln precision tig 185/225. The little press the button for the hidden menus isn't bad its just different. All in all 5 stars for a welder that does everything and does everything well. If you are on the fence, just get it already. Buy once, cry once.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from welder welder work really good with on gmaw with 0.35 O didn't try gtaw yet waiting for argon shield gas. awesome customer service
Date published: 2023-03-26
Rated 4 out of 5 by from It needs a heavier duty lead and torch. It's a solid welder, it does well especially on aluminum but the main disappointment is mig lead. It's short and light duty with no compatibility with aftermarket such as profax or Bernard. For hobby and light duty welding it would be great, but for heavy use it's a bit lacking.

Questions & Answers

Whats the difference between a MP200i vs the MP250i? And which one would you recommend?

Asked by: Amiller520
The biggest difference is the AC/DC MP200i has a highly adjustable TIG mode, including AC output for welding aluminum. If you really want a one-and-done welder for your home garage or small shop, this is the unit for you. The MP250i is also a great welder and similar in many ways, but more focused towards heavy duty steel/stainless welding. You can't put the small 4" spools of MIG wire on that machine. It has an extra 50A of top end output, but only useful if you're working with thick metal >1/4". The TIG mode isn't as adjustable and is DC only, but does still feature the high frequency start and foot pedal control option.
