Eastwood 200 Amp DC TIG Welder

Description

The Eastwood TIG 200DC is designed for the enthusiast wanting the benefits of TIG welding steel and stainless without the cost of an AC inverter. The TIG200DC is one of the easiest TIGs on the market for set up and use and also includes the most features. A must for anyone wanting to get started in TIG welding!

The Eastwood TIG 200 DC Welder Features:

  • Stick welds in DC Positive/Negative
  • 10-200 amp DC output inverter power supply
  • 1/4" capacity in steel and stainless steel
  • Remote pedal with variable amperage control
  • Included Finger on/off switch for additional arc starting option
  • High frequency start for precise arc control
  • Internal pre gas flow set at 0.5 sec and post gas flow set at 5 sec

*Please note: This welder does not weld aluminum. To weld aluminum please order our Eastwood TIG Welder 200 Amp AC/DC welder which has the high frequency AC setting needed to properly weld aluminum.

TIG Welding is the most controllable, efficient and versatile method of welding many metals including steel, stainless steel and more. Your EASTWOOD TIG 200 DC WELDER with High-Frequency Inverter Technology is capable of welding thin or heavy gauge steel with precision and ease. The voltage self-sensing circuitry automatically detects a power source range of 110 to 240 volts and delivers from 10 up to 200 Amps DC. The included foot pedal provides the operator with the precise amperage control required when welding. A high frequency start feature guarantees an instant arc strike with no tungsten contamination.

Duty Cycle

The rated Duty cycle refers to the amount of welding that can be done within an amount of time. The Eastwood TIG 200 DC has a duty cycle of 60% at 190 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 190 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. To increase the duty cycle you can turn down the Amperage Output control. Going above 190 Amps will yield a lower duty cycle.

Customer Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from works fine I have a tig welder at work and this for home projects. the welder at work has a foot pedal that varies weld and arc with the pedal. the 200 has a set amp range. hard to get used to. but i will get it with time. nice steady arc, easy start-up. light weight for around the docks. All in all like it very much.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sweet little machine I purchased this machine a couple weeks ago and haven't used it until today. After laying my first bead I was impressed with the arc stability. The rheostat seems to have a real nice adjustment range on it, and isn't overly sensitive. So far I like this machine a lot. I do a lot of welding where I need nice clean welds that you just can't get with a Mig welder. The only reason I gave it 4 stars, and not 5 is because the Post Flow is way too long, and not adjustable, and tends to waste gas, which can get expensive. An adjustable post flow, or even cutting the post flow time down to 2 seconds would be awesome.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Tig for the price I bought this welder about 7 months ago and have used it alot and love it,works ok on 110 for thinner stuff but on 220 it rips really well.Foot pedal could be alot better and that the only reason for the 4 starts

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Welder didnt work. I bought the eastwood tigwelder online off of another site and it cost me almost $700. The machine didnt work. It powered up but wouldnt make a spark. I replaced it with a miller. Eastwood is giving me my money back. Its best not to go cheap. You get what you pay for.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from not so good purchased mine about 2 1/2 years ago it came with no ground cable ( which Eastwood customer service corrected quickly). I have been able to use this machine maybe 30 minutes altogether and plugged/unplugged a total of 5 times, now the ground plug is broken off of the 110 adapter cord. Currently waiting for a response from Eastwood.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Overload Failure after 3 hours Failed after 3 hours of light use. Welded fine last use. Went to use it a few days later and it wouldn't strike an arc. Overload light comes on when the trigger is pressed. Never even used it above 70A, mostly at 40A. I even let it cool for a few minutes before turning it off every time. Eastwood offered a replacement, won't be taking them up on that.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Initial Review My machine arrived quickly which was great because I had a job I needed it for that week. Unfortunately it didn't work which was bad because I had a job I needed it for last week.:) Looks to me like the gas solenoid not working. I'll be revising my review after my new machine gets here. I realize you get what you pay for so I'm being patient and hopeful this machine will do the job when I get it back. Hope it's soon.

It is not defective, this is post gas flow to provide coverage over the weld when you are done so it doesn't oxidize.
