I hadn't welded for about 40 years, but things around the home & property that could use a welder were adding up. So I did some research on these little flux core welders, to include a similar one at Harbor Freight. After all that I opted for this little guy for just a bit more money. I'm one of those that'd rather pay a little more up front, for less grief in the long run.
I unpackaged the unit, followed the directions, clamped on a helmet and hit the trigger. The first couple welds weren't too bad, especially considering the circumstances of time and lack of experience on my end with a wire feed welder. I began playing with the feed and temp controls and after a couple minutes it put down a bead that surprised even me.
One thing I'd discovered during my research was that competitive welders in this price range only have two heat settings—high & low. This one, on the other hand, has four. I have to say, I was thrilled to have those four heat settings to choose from (while trying to zero things in) that first day.
I haven't begun to tackle the honey-do's yet, but feel confident this little welder will handle them just fine.

I'm very impressed with this welder; It is unbelievable how well it gets the job done. Having spent 30+ years in the automotive industry I have used many different welders. I wanted a welder that would handle small tasks and I found one. This unit takes care of all my welding needs around the home and in my shop. It was easy to set up and I was welding in a few minutes. I enjoy using this welder and I couldn't be happier with the ease of operation and controls.

Works great, easy to use. took only a couple minutes to setup and learn to use. Good for projects around the house. Right now I use it to modify my bikes.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bubbagumwelder great backyard welder!
This welder is wonderful for lighter weight metals such as a mower deck. Definitely not suitable for thick plate metal.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shotgun53 It does the job for the type of welding designed.
A good value so far for a FCAW. Does the job as designed. You get what you paid for.
