Top notch welder for all kinds of work!


This unit is a serious welder that is flexible and able to handle anything a creator like me can throw at it. Top notch equipment! Easy adjustments even with gloves on, lots of handy features for the serious welder with a lot of fabricating on the schedule, or for farm equipment repair. Easy to dial in, even for newbies. I love this machine and I can tell it's going to be around a long time! I've already used this unit to weld copper, to MIG braze brass and bronze to metal, and to weld up some up 5/8" steel plates, it's a beast!
