I made use of this thing the moment I got it. I can't picture how I would have cut up a 4'x4' piece of 14-gauge steel by hand. This thing sliced it up like butter. There's zero learning curve.
Already owning a Handler 187 MIG and an EZ-TIG 165, I was surprised at how small and light this unit is. Cute, even! That, along with the dual-voltage option, makes it a joy to carry around. Plus the power cord and wand cord are each 10 feet long, so this thing is very mobile.
ProsSmall, light, powerful, easy to use.
ConsNothing so far with the performance. I haven't tried it at its maximum rating yet, but it's been great on everything else so far.
Cord management is challenging, but this has nothing to do with the unit itself.
