I have only had the unit for a week but it appears to be all that I expected for less than 1/2 the cost of the other brand. Impressed with the quality of the fit and finish. Very minimalistic but simple and easy to maintain. Easy to pull start. Comes with running gear. USA assembled. A brand I can trust. Very smooth arc. Loud, but I expected that. I would purchase it again in a minute. I also purchased the factory made cover and found it to be better than expected.

shipping took awhile, but the sales rep kept in contact and replied to all my emails. It was expected due to the covid.
I rated 4 stars due to the cheap rubber boots on the bottom of the handle side. They broke off due to the weight on them. The boots broke off the same day I installed the wheels and handles. Other than that, I enjoy the welder.
- RRichardVerified BuyerI recommend this productRated 5 out of 5 stars2 years agoAwesome machine
I bought the machine because it is fairly cheap for a gas welder and heard good things about it. I also purchased the 20ft hobart leads. Shipping was no problem received it pretty quickly.
- WWayneVerified BuyerI recommend this productRated 5 out of 5 stars3 years agoA very good welder for the price
Being a self tough tame true welder on the ranch, I haven't had any problems in repairing fences or equipment. A very good welder. Would recommend it to anyone.

Just received this from Cyberweld today. Burned some excalibur 7018 rods and the arc was comparable to the miller 8-packs at my welding school! Definitely runs hot so I had to turn down the amperage a bit. Sound is very manageable and the machine is so user friendly. This machine is underrated and is the only good DC engine driven stick welder under $2,000. Lincolns version costs more and its AC only so who wants that! The miller bluestar is a nice comparable machine but its way more $ and the only real difference is a Kohler engine. The champion 145 also has miller coils which is a nice plus
