The helmet comes with easy instructions on which settings are best for different types of welding and a couple replacement lenses. It is very lightweight which is easy on your neck for extended periods of time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JimmyDIY Out with the old, in with the best!
I finally decided to get a new welding helmet to replace my current helmet that is over 10 years old. My old helmet did not have the auto-darkening feature so I was ready for an upgrade.
I decided on the Lincoln Auto-Darkening Red Fierce Helmet found at Home Depot. I really didn't know I was getting such a great product at the time.
First, the graphics are incredible. I am going from a plain black helmet to a helmet that looks like it has 500 horsepower. Second, the Auto-Darkening feature is even better than I have envisioned. It is like turning a light on and off. It goes to dark and back to light as quickly as the arc strikes the metal. Also, the solar powered feature is awesome. It looks like a solar powered strip off a calculator and no batteries are ever required. Another great feature is the Sensitivity and Time delay switches inside the helmet. This allows for three adjustments on the auto-darkening feature and a slow and fast speed on the auto-darkening feature.
Some of the other features are the nice sweat band on the strap that goes across your forehead. The quick sizing knob on the back makes it easy for my son to resize the helmet and wear it. The side tension knobs allow you to set the correct amount of tension to raise and lower the helmet to weld. A quick flick of your head brings the helmet down for welding.
To top it all off, Lincoln sends two sets of interior replacement lenses...Bonus! I have included several images of the features of this helmet.
I am thrilled about my now Lincoln Welding Helmet and would absolutely recommend this product to any welder, from hobby welder to pro.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Luis awesome weld helmet!
I was trying to save money and bought a HFT auto dark weld helmet on sale because of the decent reviews. When I began using it I felt the flash hitting my eyes and for the rest of the day my eyes hurt, this weld helmet works way better! I paid more than twice the price but my eyes are well worth it. Once I began using this one my eyes felt great and it feels like a solid helmet, I will definitely be buying more Lincoln products for all my welding needs from now on!

This is great for the price. I didn't realize it didn't have grind mode till I was using it. Other than that all good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Automastertech this product is well worth every penny
the lincoln electric red fierce auto darkening welding helmet is well built, nice graphics, and easy to use. i started to get a cheapo model from online, but then i realized hey......ive only got one set of eyes, why trust them to a company ive never heard of? lincoln, hobart and miller are the top welding machines with many combined years of lasting welding equipment, and so im glad i purchased this product. as soon as you put the helmet on you realize that trusting your vision to companies that know the buisiness is always a good idea.
