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. Attach the free spool gun and 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.
