Product Overview:

Description

All-In-One Eastwood Welder

When you want a Multi-Process machine that's built to deliver great results with no compromises, you need the Eastwood Elite MP250i. It has all of the features of a standard 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 ½-inch steel plate using these versatile machines. The Elite MP250i doesn't stop there either. You can also stick weld aluminum or add an optional spool gun for MIG welding aluminum. If you aren't looking for all of the added features of a Multi-Process unit, you can check out our standard MIG 250 Welder.

The Eastwood MP250i Multi-Process 250 Amp Welder Features:

  • Operates on either 120 or 240V
  • Welds steel and stainless
  • Welds aluminum, with optional spool gun
  • IGBT inverter based power supply

  • Arc Welds up to ½ inch steel and stainless

  • Holds either 8 or 12 inch wire spools (44 lb. max weight)
  • Square Wave Inverter
  • Fully independent MIG and TIG Gas Systems

The rated Duty Cycle refers to the amount of welding that can be done within an amount of time. The Eastwood MP250i has a Duty Cycle of 60% at 250 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 250 Amps with a 60% Duty Cycle, within a 10 Minute block of time you can weld for 6 Minutes with 4 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.

Application Tips

Why Do You Need This Multi-Process Welder?

You want a welder that allows you to Stick, MIG and TIG weld. And you're probably interested in this unit because you'll be able to MIG and TIG weld with a single powerful machine. Most multi-process units are basically MIG welders with a scratch start TIG that greatly limits the abilities of the machine. We designed this machine with a true TIG welding function with a high frequency start and foot pedal like you would get from a welder devoted to TIG welding. This will allow you to not only have the ability to do high quality stick and MIG welds, but also TIG welds, and that is why this is the machine for you.

Questions & Answers

Are the MP250i going to be in stock anytime soon? Rather buy from you guys

Asked by: Flo92
Unfortunately, the out of stock indicator next to the add to cart button is the best estimate we have. It looks like it will be a couple months still, but you can back order it to be the first in line when they get here.

I have this machine what shielding gas i should use for tig carbon steel?? Sch 40 and what shielding gas is better for mig 75ar 25co2 or a 85ar 10he 5co2tri mix?? Or 95ar 5co2?? Is this machine capable of spray transfer??

Asked by: Ramon
Eastwood recommends the use of 75% Argon / 25% CO2 for shielding gas when MIG welding Steel, 100% Argon for Aluminum, and Tri-Mix (90% He / 7.5% Ar / 2.5% CO2) for Stainless Steel. We recommend 100% Argon for TIG welding. This machine can spray transfer MIG. For that operation you would want to utilize at least 90% Argon and 10% CO2 mixture, or a greater concentration of Argon up to 98%.

Is there plans to sell 0.023 rollers? It's a shame the one of the flagship Eastwood welders can't handle wire commonly used in sheet metal fab, especially when the both the welder and instruction manual lists settings for 0.023.

Asked by: Marcus
Not at the current time. This has been discussed a few times in other Q&A questions but the issue is the length of the torch this unit comes with. .023" wire will not feed properly through this at such a length.
