Eastwood MIG 250 Welder is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 49.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mustang 65 Full restoration I wrote a review 4 years ago until today I can tell you, it has been the best decision. The mustang is fully done, I am still using the machine for anything. I fully recommend it it is worth the money. Friends of mine that work on Body shops are amazed of how good the welds are.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great welder First I bought a Lincoln 180. I sent it back because it didn't have enough power to weld even 1/4 steel unless you were running flux core. This is a great little machine, It is smaller and lighter than my old Baby Mig 131, and has a ton more power. I even ran it off a 50 ft extension card 110 volts and it works like a charm. Very smooth welds!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value When i struck out on my own, i leaned on Eastwood products to keep my start up costs low. Now three years Later all three products (mig 135 mig 250 and versa cut 60 ) are still going strong, Yes I've had some issues with the welders. ( put a heavier ground clamp on ) but tech support is great and the no question warranty is no B.S !!!. . I had an Issue a year an a half in, I even told them i used their products on a daily basis and was glad to pay for repairs, they just sent me a new one !!!

At what pressure should the shielding gas be set at?

Asked by: Garage junkie
The shielding gas will change upon the thickness of what you are cutting. There is a chart inside of the door which is a guide which gives you information on what gas should be set at.

A previous answer says it fits Tweco torches but it doesn’t come with a Tweco gun. Another answer says you don’t know if it will fit aftermarket guns. Can the question be answered more clearly.  ——— Can a Tweco gun be attached to this welder.

Asked by: Mikelab
Yes a Tweco torch can be attached to this welder. We say that we use a Tweco "Style" torch. you are correct our welder comes with a Trafimet ERGOPLUS24 10 foot torch.

MIG Welding from Eastwood

The MIG 250 Welder is a powerful, lightweight machine at a DIY-friendly price. Eastwood designed this 250-amp MIG welder from the ground up to be powerful, easy to use and inexpensive. With its state-of-the-art inverter technology, it weighs half as much as similar welders - and costs half as much too. But it still delivers all the power you will ever need to weld steel from 20 gauge to ½-inch thick. If you add on an optional spool gun, you can also weld aluminum from 14 gauge to ¼-inch thick. The welder has 60 percent duty cycle at its full 250-amp setting, meaning you can weld for up to six minutes before giving the machine four minutes too cool.

The Eastwood MIG 250 Features:

  • Welds 20 gauge steel up to ½-inch thick plate
  • 120- or 240-volt powered
  • Infinitely adjustable 30-250 amp welding range
  • 60 percent duty cycle at 250 amp setting
  • Weighs just 66 lbs.
  • Torch Cable Length: 10 feet
  • Ground Cable Length: 10 feet
  • State of the art inverter technology
  • Uses 4-inch or 8-inch wire spool
  • Optional spool gun for aluminum wire
  • Trafimet ERGOPLUS24 10-foot torch
  • 3-year manufacturer's warranty

Portability from Your Eastwood Welder

This 250-amp MIG welder is the only truly portable unit on the market today. It has the ability to run on 120v or 240v, so you can plug it into pretty much any existing circuitry your shop has. This also means you can easily take it to the race track or job site and run it off a generator. On 120v power, you can use up to 140 amps, which is enough for most small and midsize jobs. The efficiency of the inverter means you'll still get great welds even on lower voltages or amp settings. It also can take both 4-inch and 8-inch diameter spools and feed steel or stainless steel wire from 0.023-inch to 0.045-inch. Flux core wire for outdoor welding can be between 0.030 and 0.045 inches in diameter while aluminum wire is limited to 0.030-0.035 inches. A unique wire spool mount is configured to hold either 2-pound or 10-pound spools of wire.

Everything You Need for MIG Welding

This lightweight unit ships to your door via FedEx or UPS, eliminating costly truck shipping freight fees. It comes with a Trafimet ERGOPLUS24 10-foot MIG torch and ground clamp, a shielding gas regulator and hose, extra contact tips, an 8-inch wire spool adapter, a roll of 0.030-inch steel MIG wire and other MIG 250 welding supplies for your shop. The only thing you need to add is a canister of shielding gas. It is the perfect way to do heavy-duty welding using the simple but effective MIG technique.
