High-Value Welders from Eastwood

This 180-amp MIG welder with spool gun has everything you need to get started, just add a bottle of shielding gas. It includes a precision metal drive motor, regulator with hose, Tweco-style torch, tips and accessories, modern features and technology. A "Quick Setup" welding chart specifies settings for each material thickness, eliminating guesswork and assuring complete penetration.

The unit is backed by Eastwood's No-Hassle 90-day return policy and industry leading 3-year manufacturer's warranty. We even provide tips and tricks on MIG welding in the Eastwood Garage that will get you started and improve your welding.

Precision Drive Motor

The drive roller mechanism, which is the heart of any MIG welder, is designed to our high specifications and delivers flawless wire feed without skipping or slipping on the wire. That's why the MIG 180 has a quality METAL drive motor. This means you'll get a great puddle and solid welds without having to go back and "touch up" spots. Beware of other units with much lower quality equipment!

Eastwood MIG 180 Welder

All-Around Steel and Aluminum MIG Welder

The MIG 180 comes complete (except for the gas cylinder) and is ready to weld 24 gauge to 5/16-inch mild steel and stainless. Connect the spool gun and you can also weld 14 gauge to 1/4-inch aluminum. With a 30 to 180 amp welding range, this high-quality MIG welding machine has a 30 percent duty cycle at 180 amps and a 60 percent duty cycle at 65 amps, giving you the power needed for tough projects.

The metal drive motor feeds the wire smoothly for the best operation and the infinitely adjustable wire speed and heat settings allows you to precisely control the machine. If you don't have a gas bottle, or are away from your shop, use the flux core wire for your welding project. Plus the ability to connect to either 240 or 120 volts makes this an incredibly versatile machine for any garage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1st time welder I bought for what it claims to do.
Date published: 2021-11-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 180 Welder Great welder, arrived quickly, easy to set up, has adapter cable for 120vac, easy to use and does a great job welding.
Date published: 2021-11-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy it now!!! Bought this unit 5 months ago primarily for the spool gun which works great but I've been mostly running flux core through the wire feed. I have several stick and tig welders and an old Millermatic mig and I have to say I'm impressed with this machine . The 120v 240v dual voltage is great and it's lite enough to throw in the trunk of the car and go. If your in the market for a good mig at a decent price this is it.

Is it possible to weld small spots of 1/8” aluminum with this with 120v? Have some holes that need filled on my boat. 

Asked by: Chad
Yes, when plugged into 120v you should get at least 1/2 potential out of this machine which would be capable of welding this thickness material.

Can this unit operate with flux core or solid wire purchased from local box stores? 

Asked by: RetiredEngineer
Yes as long as the spool is .023 - .035 sized wire in 4" and 8" spools up to 11lbs.

Does this come with a regulator for mixed gas and argon or a CO2 regulator?

Asked by: Mike H
The answer by ZachC must be incorrect. Where it attaches to the bottle Argon regulators have a male thread and CO2 regulators have a female thread. So the same regulator can not work with mixed gas and CO2.
