Great capability in a small package
December 6, 2017
Bought this for the ability to weld just about anywhere without lugging my much larger (Thunderbolt, Trailblazer) and more expensive welders around. Just an amazing little welder. So small and light, and welds great. First ran 1/16" and 3/32" 6011, 6013, 7014 on 120 volts. Nice arc quality on all 3; great starts. Didn't have any small diameter 7018 to try. Tried some I/8" 6011 and 6013--works but requires attention to maintain the arc. Probably would not do that in the course of normal work. Switched to 240 volts; ran 1/8 in each kind of rod very nicely, as well as 7018. Capability for the price is excellent, and backed by a real warranty from Hobart though it is Chinese. And when someone wants to borrow a welder, I feel much better loaning a $350 machine as opposed to my $3500 Dynasty 200.
As usual, superb service from Cyberweld on this purchase.
