What's the duty cycle on this thing?

I don't know why you guys don't include the duty cycle of the welders you have listed in your specs. That is some very important imformation to know before I buy a welder or not.

Weld Pak 180 HD Wire Feed Welder is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 49.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reviews are important and a great welder ! First off I'll start by saying I never write reviews. But this time I felt compelled to after doing research in speaking to Lincoln representatives they said that this product is not up to Lincoln standards it's just a big box store welder. But I went against what this gentleman had told me and bought this Lincoln 180 HD from Home Depot. This welder is great and very easy to use and for someone to learn how to weld. I recommend this welder to anyone looking to buy one for anything around the house and you can even handle light industrial use. Hands-down great welder and I'm very very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I AM VERY SURPRIZED. At first, I was not sure about it being strong enough to burn thick material... I AM VERY SURPRIZED. At first, I was not sure about it being strong enough to burn thick material. I am A welder of 13 years and use stick and flux at home for everything. I have a Hobart Handler 120. And it is just not hot enough. Needed to speed up production time. I bought this Lincoln 180 HD 3 days ago and finished my job fast. One problem they don't tell that you can not plug it straight in to the dryer hook up. The welder can run up to 50 amps. Dryer hook up is 30 amps. A Stove range is 50 amp. I didn't want to change the dryer plug in the garage, because I run my stick welder off of it. So you can make a pig tail with the 6-50R female end wired with 240 volt 50 amp cord 1ft long to a 30/50A-125/250V. witch will plug in to dryer and you can start welding the once you hook it up. I am no and I put it together. I love this welder......I can run hard wire Hot and fast. I welded up to 1/2 thick with hard wire. solid hot, no under cut , nice fill. Need I tell you I weld with 3/32, 5/64, 1/16 outer shield wire on a daily bases at work. Needed a better welder for home. This litter welder can get r done. The roller is smooth and quiet, runs very good hot flat welds. Sounds like bacon cooking lol. I am only running the Lincoln on 220 v 30 amp dryer plug and it works great, even on the highest setting. Very happy customer, bad it didn't come with the Aluminum spool gun..... that's only $200.00 extra and does not come with 045. roller. has to be ordered. I do highly recommend this welder, good price....

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Welds good but I purchase this machine because I thought it would weld thicker metals .. But went I got it home and looked at the settings chart. It welds the same as the smaller unit I already have.. In order to weld thicker metal U have to buy a kit . That HD don't stock in store and its pricey. U can buy a much bigger machine for the price differences and not have to changed nothing ..Thank goodness HD let me return it. If u don't have a welder then I would recommend this one for home use lite fab work.. But if u already have a smaller welder and just want something bigger for thicker metals .. That can do it with a single pass . I would not recommend this unit .

Have used this welder before, does a nice job, installation says it comes with an .035/.045 Knurled drive roller installed, IT DOES NOT, it has the .025/0.35 smooth drive roller installed and the Knurled roller IS NOT INCLUDED with this kit, it also does not have the Black Flux Core Nozzle which the installation manual also states. Home Depot has a Flux Core Kit @ an additional $125 charge which I tried to order, but was out of stock for a month. I had to go to local Weld Supply store for .045 Liner and Inter-shield wire, had to order .045 drive roller from online source, still waiting on that. Kind of a disappointing purchase!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Versatile and easy adjustments I have owned this welder for over a year now and had great success making solid clean welds. I am using shielding gas to aid in the process. I am not an expert welder, but my career is in the weld inspection field. I know what a good weld should look like! I have found the instructions easy to follow when changing settings for different materials and thicknesses. Their table inside the cover gives great starting points for setting the controls on the system. You may have to make minor adjustments to get the best welding performance out of the system. It has been a solid performer with no issues in the year + I have owned and used it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Killer Home Welder I am a new welder but have a zillion projects I need a welder for. I have a great welding shop in my town but, they cost a bundle for small jobs and takes a week or more to get it done. I'll get it done way faster and before I get done with half my projects, I will have paid for this machine. I needed to add some 1/4" rod to the edge of a security door frame to get the jamb mounted. At the low (2) setting, I was easily able to get nice white penetration without distorting the jamb. That job would have run me $75 to $100 downtown. Cha-CHING! As for the 220 wiring, its a standard welder plug. They sell em at HD. 220v wiring is easier than 110v wiring: Two hots and a ground. Can't screw it up. If you have 220 and the wrong plug, spend the $10 for the correct plug, shut your power off (verify), and wire the new plug in. The directions are on the new plug box! If you are worried about your insurance voiding a claim due to DIY wiring work, just know if you do it wrong you will pop the breaker. If you do it correctly (99% chance if you can read), you'll be in business. I wired my shop with 220v just for my welder and compressor and it was stupid simple. My Home Depot has an experienced electrician to answer questions and she pointed me in the right direction and it worked from the second I turned it on. Sweet. The 180 is fairly heavy but a cart makes it easy to move to the welding location and to store parts and pieces.

The Lincoln Weld Pak machines are great, they have been around for decades and are pretty much bullet proof. Recently bought the 220v machine from a Home Depot and had it set up with an Argon/CO2 bottle and it runs great on mild steel. Have also used it with flux-core and have no complaints. The advantages to this machine is the ease of use and dependability. The only reason I only give 4 stars is because of the weight. There are lighter machines out there but you really have to pay for it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Quality Unit MIG welders are a total joy to use and it's easy to understand why they've replaced most of the stick welders. I added an 87 cubic-foot tank of argon/CO2 and a cart. The unit arrived set up for flux-core welding wire and I needed to change gun tip, feed roller, and polarity for use with gas. The gun has a nice 10-foot lead. You will soon need a 10 or 12 pound spool of wire, but the sample roll is certainly enough to use the first day or so. This is a high quality machine for home use with accessories and parts available. I asked several professional welders and they recommended this 220 Volt machine.
