- Eastwood 175 Amp MIG Welder w/ spool gun
When connecting the spool gun do i have to reverse polarity
Can you purchase the 175 Witt out the spool gun an get it any cheaper
On the mig 175, do you have to make any changes to run flux core
Can this welder be used at 115v?
What gauge or thickness aluminum will this weld? Will the spool gun handle .035?
Does the wire feed control automatically varies to suit the power ?
1/2” steel could be welded with multiple passes?
I have the MIG 175. I've used it a few times for aluminum and once with the flux core. The other day I tried to feed wire through the torch and spool gun and it repeatedly tripped the reset breaker on the back of the welder. What could be wrong?

All-Around Aluminum MIG Welder
The MIG 175 welder is designed for the professional or weekend enthusiast. The welder comes complete (except for the gas cylinder) and is ready to weld 24 gauge to 5/16-inch mild steel and stainless steel. By attached the free spool gun, you can also weld 14 gauge to 1/4-inch aluminum. This high-quality MIG welding machine has a 30 percent duty cycle at 135 amps and a 30-175 amp welding range, giving you the power and time needed for tough projects. It feeds wire at 58-471 inches per minute and has infinitely adjustable wire speed and heat settings. Anyone who has a 220-volt electrical outlet in their garage or shop can use this spool gun welder. Attaching an extension cord will let you bring the welder to the project instead of the other way around.
Precise Welding Control
The Amperage and output voltage can be controlled precisely to get the proper penetration required. Wire speed can be infinitely adjusted to gain proper wire fill in the weld pool. This unit has been compared to the leading U.S.-manufactured red welders, with equivalent results at a fraction of the cost.
Spool Gun For Welding Aluminum
Many modern cars and trucks have aluminum parts, and you may also want to custom-fabricate parts from this material for a restoration. With the included spool gun, you can weld 14-gauge to 1/4-inch aluminum. Attach or remove it as needed for working on different parts and panels.
Precision Drive Motor
The drive roll mechanism, which is the heart of any MIG welder, is designed to our specifications and delivers flawless wire feed without skipping or slipping on the wire. This means you'll get a great puddle and solid welds without having to go back and "touch up" spots.
