what do you think of this welder?

I was looking thru their site and came across this welder.MIG Welder 110VAC/ 135A Output
It is alot cheaper than a Lincoln, Miller or Hobart and seems to be decent for the price point. Does anybody have any experience with Eastwood?

I can't access the link at work but I think you will want to stay with a welder from Lincoln, Miller, or Hobart. And I think other people will tell you the same thing...

I agree with the previous poster on welder brands. It's cheap enough, that's for sure. Remember you get what you pay for. I've never been a fan of the 110 volt machines. They just don't have enough amps to allow you to weld thicker material effectively and the duty cycle on this one is only 20 % at 90 amps. Much welding on bumpers, swing away tire carriers and such will be at higher amps so your machine will be shutting itself down often to cool off. To be honest I have no personal experience with this brand so I really can't say but it seems you'd be better off buying a 220 volt welder and from a local source. Internet sales on large items like this will cause you a pain if you have issues with it.

looks a lot like the "Northern Tool" 110V welder version.

stick with Lincoln, Hobart or Miller...consumables are available everywhere...especially for the Lincoln's (Home Depot or Lowes).

Do you know what was good about the good old days? I wasn't good, And I wasn't old!
