  • Eastwood 175 Amp MIG Welder w/ spool gun
Eastwood 175 Amp MIG Welder w/ spool gun is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 245.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Welder. Better Service My Wife bought this EW Mig 175 and Plasma Versa 60 for me last Christamas. Ive been Building my bagged and bodied c10 and needed a welder badly. I was super excited to get this as a gift (best wife ever)! I did not use it for a few months later and was a little bummed out when I did. The welder I received for what ever reason would not allow shielding gas to come out the nozzle. A quick call to Eastwood solved this problem. The Tech ran me through some diagnostics which didn't help, and said he would send me a new welder and after the received mine, and they did! The new one works awesome! Just as advertised! I love it and will be a EW customer for life! Great product even better customer support. Thanks EW!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great combo welder- welding spool Been welding all my life and bought this welder for a replacement of an old mig welder. Got to say this welder is the best mig I have ever used in a small package. Has the right adjustments to weld all gauges of metal I weld. Lays down a bead that any welder would be proud of. The spoon gun is top notch too, aluminum welding works great on all I have welded. I can see the spoon gun would come in handy working on sheet metal on an car/truck repair. I am very happy with this welder and have used it enough to know it is a well built welder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great welder Bought 3weeks ago. Started welding right out of the box, as soon as i got some gas! Was repairing a bar stool of light guage steel. Learned a lot on the first project. Does the job and is forgiving. Infinite settings on wire speed and voltage allow fine tuning. Great feature!

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?

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.
