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.

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
  • MIG Welds thin steel sheet metal or up to ½ inch steel plate

  • Arc Welds up to ½ inch steel and stainless
  • Welds aluminum up to 1/4 inch with a spool gun (item 20172 sold separately)
  • Holds either 8 or 12 inch wire spools (44 lb. max weight)
  • Square Wave Inverter
  • Fully independent MIG and TIG Gas Systems
  • 10 feet long power cord so you can weld anywhere
  • Holds 2 bottles for both MIG and TIG welding
  • All 3 torches are more than 12 feet long
  • Extra long TIG foot pedal (15.9')
  • Includes two standard gas regulators (CO2, Argon)

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.

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.

Is there a drive roller available for purchase from Eastwood that will allow the use of .023,.024,.025 solid core MiG welding wire? Thanks in advance for any information you can provide.

Asked by: Bill
Unfortunately there is not. The minimum diameter wire this unit will work with is .030 because of the length of the torch assembly.

How does this welder do in wet conditions? Would it need to be covered to protect from rain from being in the back of my truck? Or should it be fine? 

Asked by: Justin
This should not be subjected to the elements like this. It should certainly be covered and not left exposed.
