Called Lincoln and took to authorized repair center with .8 hours. Repair Tec checked everything; all checked out per specs. He could not get the machine to burn a clean rod either. Not recommended. Machine returned with 1.1 hours on it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good welder, but no accessories This is a great portable welder, but by the time you add a wheel kit, welding cables, electrode holder and ground clamp, you are paying out an extra $450.00 or so. Starts easily, not too loud but needs the wheel kit. One person cannot move this on their own. Welds 1/4 inch steel easily. Worth noting that Lowes were selling the exact same welder for $500 more though.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk This is too heavy to move alone. Don't expect to use 1/8 rods on low amperage with this machine. It just sticks to the work. It will not even light an 1/8 6011 rod effectively until you get close to 100 amps, which tends to quickly blow through anything less than 3/16" steel, even when whipping the rod rather quickly. Using the 3/32 rods is OK, but it needs nearly 80 amps to light one of those effectively (6011 Anchor rods). It tends to surge, yielding ugly beads at times. If you need to weld something on the farm that's 3/8" thick, it's fine with 1/8 rods, but not much good for finesse work using the 3/32 rods. You better keep short leads on this thing too, as it seems to lose voltage pretty quickly. Get a Miller, you'll be happier.
