Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Conner503 Great home welder
This is great for small to medium home projects. I have used it for several projects and they came out great. After some adjusting to this new welder it works great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rich Nice little machine
I bought this welder for it's compact size and portability. Once you get it dialed in it runs a nice bead on thin gauge steel. For small home repairs this little machine works great. I was able to repair a mower deck that otherwise would have been junk. For it's size and power, it runs a nice solid weld if you know what you're doing. I did not find the spatter to be excessive even using the fluxcore wire. The key is adjusting the wire speed correctly for the heat you're using. The lack of argon co2 gas mix is also nice. No tanks to refill and change. Advertised capacity is 1/8th inch but it has enough power to go up to 1/4. Don't expect to build bridges with it, but it will handle any home repair you can toss at it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sean Fathers Day gift
My wonderful wife got me one of these for Fathers Day. I got it home, set it up and started welding. It was that easy. I've been a Heavy Equipment mechanic for the last 30 years. I've done a little welding. It didn't take any time at all to figure this thing out.
It actually has 4 heat range settings but rather than 4 settings on a dial like the Weld Pak 125, 140 and 160, this thing makes do with a pair of rocker switches. Not that it's a bad thing, the bigger models only have 4 settings also.
The hand held welding shield that is included is cheap but it works quite well. I have a welding helmet I use with my arc/TIG welder and I honestly didn't feel like I needed to pull it on.
Within 5 minutes of setting up, I fixed a rack for my wife and started construction of a welding cart for the Weld Pak. It worked great for these small projects but I wouldn't hesitate to use it for larger ones.
For the money, it's a reasonably good product and I don't feel like I need more performance for anything I'm going to do around the home.
I experienced none of the issues other reviewers wrote about. Wire feed is smooth and the feed motor is not noisier than any other MIG or wire feed welder I've ever used. I've used Lincoln's on the job for years and really, nothing about this one screams cheap or substandard.

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

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DJ What a joke
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!
