Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Skinny Be Careful, this is a very low quality welder
I owned this welder 2 months and am returning it today. Let me try and help you from my buying experience. For starters this is a "Lincoln Branded" welder made in Poland. Its completely awful for gauge steel and body work. There is no upgrade available for shielding gas. A common problem mine included is the inconsistent or surging wire spool motor, if sounds like the motor wants to die and then speeds up. I checked and tried every adjustment they are just poor quality spool motors. If you would like more honest reviews of this welder check here on home depots site for a Lincoln Century welder, its the same welder just different name. I had a hard time finding exactly which Lincoln HD welder this was but relied on good reviews, what a mistake. A lot of these reviews don't belong here and mention several different models. This welder is no better than an $80 welder you get with a coupon. Spent a little more buy a better welder, I bought the Lincoln 140 after returning this and love it.
Keep in mind the Lincoln 125 home depot stocks don't include the gas hook ups to upgrade it to gas will cost $189.00, for me the 140 seemed a better choice

I didn't mind the jerky- surging of the wire at 1st. I was able to "adjust by following the speed settings" but why make an " adjustable wire speed welder" if ALL GUAGES OF STEEL ARE TO BE SET ON 9!!! It's going BACK on Monday! My friend has an old weld pak 100 and it's GREAT of coarse they don't make them anymore!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by aguy Great little machine, lasted 7 years
I use this machine for small production welding running a few hours a day, 2-3 days a week, this unit lasted 7 years before the feed system spazzed and I had to get a new one. I've welded up to 1/2 inch plates without an issue, great for quick 10-16 gauge steel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pat Excellent Product works Great
First I would like to say thank you to the people at the Home Depot in Brunswick GA. They were great in helping me with a big problem. Traveling from NJ to Florida with out 5th Wheel travel trailer I noticed that the Chassis on the trailer was cracked and the spring perch was about to come off. Montana Trailer by Keystone, beware before you buy one, not good, long story. It was 8:30 at night in Georgia on Friday. Tried to find a local welder, no good. Called Home Depot and they had the Lincoln Welder. I am an experienced welder, mechanic etc. It was 115 volts so I purchased it along with angle iron, flat stock and a hacksaw. It was a complete kit, my biggest concern was it was going to blow the circuit breaker at the campsite. I made the necessary repairs and I must say the unit worked great! no problem with blowing the breakers and it welded the frame and other steel very well. I was able to make it to Disney and while I was there I did some further welding, again working great. Very nice unit high quality for general repairs. Again thanks to the people at Home Depot for the great Customer Service

My first use of this type of welder and actually any type. I needed to add 2 inches onto 1 inch square pieces of my column posts. Worked good although nothing to brag about in appearance.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bob So far this has been a great little welder that has met all my needs for my business.
I run a smal mowing business and have been able to repair all of my equipment with ease saving me a good amount of money. I would recommend this welder for any small repairs around the home.
