Powerful, lightweight 250 amp MIG welder at a DIY friendly price
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.
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.Infinite Adjustments
The MIG 250 has infinite adjustability of both its voltage and wire feed speed settings. Simply turn the two red dials on the front of the unit to set them at exactly the right levels for a perfect weld every time.Precision Drive Motor
The drive roll mechanism, which is the heart of any MIG welder, is designed to our specifications and delivers flawless wire feed without skipping or slipping on the wire.
