Product Overview

If you are looking to take your shop or business to the next level in TIG welding capability, the digital inverter-based PowerTIG 255EXT delivers exceptional power and performance at a budget friendly price. In fact, the PowerTIG 255EXT not only has a long list of competitive features but also unique features that distinguishes it from the competition. You'll find surprisingly competitive performance when comparing feature to feature against the competition such as memory, pulse and wave forms thanks to the microprocessor from Infineon. When you compare the additional features and the price advantage the welder offers such as the advanced pulse for aluminum welding and advanced stick welding controls such as hot start intensity and time adjustments, the PowerTIG 255EXT really stands on it's on. Advanced pulse is a new feature introduced on the digital PowerTIG units which improves top and low end performance on Aluminum. It can be set up to increase penetration on thick aluminum up to 25% over what is traditionally accepted as the maximum limit for the maximum output of the welder. 2 "Easy Start Up" modes also add to the unit’s versatility while keeping operation simple. The unit also excels as a stick welder featuring hot start time, hot start intensity and arc force control adjustments, making it a perfect welder for E6010 or E7018 welding. Everything on the AC/DC pulse TIG welder has been carefully designed for maximum life and reparability down the road.

PowerTIG 255 EXT TIG / Stick Welder is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.

The product appears to be in good working order but it ships with 2 water cooled torches so I now have to wait for the cooler before I can use this machine. Using a water cooled torch without the cooler is not a good idea so I will get the cooler. The machine is very compact and the user interface is clear and easy to understand. There are some neat features that make this a good choice for experienced welders as it can simulate the older machines. In addition there are some programmable features that will make it easier to learn TIG. The torches look to be good quality, much nicer than I received with a different brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great welder, great customer service This welder provided the perfect balance of powerful, capable machine with cost including necessary accessories like air cooled torch, water cooled torch, and pedal. While I don't make my living as a welder, I greatly appreciated the quality of this product after moving up from another imported brand. What impressed me most though was that when I did have an issue within two months of buying the welder, Everlast was extremely responsive and fast in providing a replacement unit including Oleg (CEO) quickly checking in and managing the situation. My first unit, manufactured in 2015 but delivered in July 2016, had an issue on Labor Day Weekend after switching from TIG to Stick and back. Tech support followed up on Tuesday morning on my Monday evening request for support and I had a replacement unit on Friday. The new unit was manufactured in July 2016 and hopefully has benefit from some rounds of fixes. I will update this review or write a new one if I have any more issues. Based on my experience so far even including the warranty repair, I recommend this welder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All I can say is WOW My welding side business has become much busier over the past couple of years and I've been thinking about transitioning over to it full time. I mainly weld custom car parts with the occasional weld repair as they come my way. My weapon of choice is the TIG torch but for repairs I sometimes stick weld and this welder is perfect for me. I especially like the really low amperage support and the fact that the arc is really stable.
