First One=Zero, Second One=Five Star
Did a bunch of homework, and finally decided on the Hobart knowing it was backed by Miller and trying to find a used one was fruitless. First one showed up in three days-Awesome!, Got it all set up, flipped the helmet down and stepped on the pedal----and BANG, out went the lights-literally--blew every breaker in the garage. Hmm, so reset all the breakers, checked the plugs, and hit the power again--nothing- totally dead. So, called back to Cyberweld the next day and after a few hours a new one was on the way directly from Miller. Plugged it in, turned my head, closed my eyes and stepped on the pedal--all was good. Proceeded to use it on stainless and aluminum tubing for 4 days straight without even a hiccup. Made me look way better than i should be-great machine for its intended materials and amp range. Great warranty and great customer service. Cyberweld is in my bookmarks from now on.
ProsPerfect size, easy to use. Versatile in its range. Great price.
ConsFactory Quality Control should have caught the first one.
