Questions & Answers

Will this work OK on a 15 amp 120v outlet, or does it need 20 amps?

Will this work OK on a 15 amp 120v outlet, or does it need 20 amps?
Asked by: Don
It will work on either a 15 amp outlet or a 15 / 20 amp outlet as it has a 15 amp plug on it. If your outlets have a small horizontal slot as well as the two vertical slots, then it is a combo 15 / 20 amp outlet. That is just the physical plug/socket however, a separate issue from whether the circuit is capable of providing 20 amps or you have 20 amp breakers. Even if it is on a 15 amp circuit it will work at lower power settings. If your breaker trips then you need to use a lower power setting. Ideally you should use dedicated circuit, or at least an outlet close to the service panel, to avoid wiring voltage drops and heating.

Is this considered a MIG welder? Also, would it be good for welding up a rack from square steel tubes hold solar panels

Asked by: SunnyD
No, since there is no shielding gas it cannot be a MIG welder. That being said, it has the same type of wire feed functionality. Welding your racks will depend on wall thickness. Read the manual to understand if this machine is capable of doing what you want. There is a section that addresses your question, but since we don't know the details of what you're doing you have to read.

Can the welder use thinner wire spools like .030 so you can weld body panels on cars? Can you weld bodywork on cars?

Asked by: Joe
Yes, just flip the roller on the spool for .030 wire. It comes set up for.035.

Would the flux-cored wired leaves residue like arc welding rod?

Asked by: Johnny
It is not as clean as MIG but leaves less splatter than stick welding. You will need to clean the welds if you are using MP wire (multiple pass wire). Make sure you use MP wire for better welds. This is one of the best welders for the price!

I built a trailer, gates, cord reel, tailgate, so on and so forth with this welder. I have never hit the duty cycle. I have never had any problems with it. For the money, I think it is a really nice piece of equipment, especially for the home handyman. My only complaint is that the leads are just really short. Not that $169 is a lot to pay for a welder, but its more than a lot of the flux core machines out there, and the leads are just as short. Not a huge deal though. I am not a professional welder. Just a handyman and garage guy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great travel welder on a budget. Bought this welder to have in my datsun 240z to weld with out in the desert. It welds amazingly well for a cheap welder. Very smooth, very easy to control, and works great off a generator. You'll need a 4,000 watt generator to be able to weld at full power, but at 3,000 watt will work great for lower settings. Only holds a pound of wire so bring more rolls with you. The key difference in this welder is the fact that it's an inverter welder and is lighter and has more power as a result. It's a DC machine, NOT A.C., less splatter and easier to use than the harbor freight or other similar 90 amp welders. I did a side by side compare of the 90 amp harbor freight welder and this little machine, see for yourself how it does. https://youtu.be/uk94lD-G_vU

This machine looks like and sets up in much the same manner as a "traditional" flux core machine...except it's a smaller and much lighter version. It, also, has the desirable top loading feature for installing the small spools of electrode wire. So, very portable. BIG DIFFERENCE THO: this one has DC output, infinite voltage adjustment, and a very smooth running drive motor that's truly independent of the voltage selected (the wire feed speed not dependent on a selected tap. In other words; the wire feed speed is a predictable constant, regardless of the voltage selected). I've had this for about a month now and have used it on material from 18ga thru 3/16th inch plate. This machine FAR exceeded my expectations on materials from 16ga up to my 3/16ths plate. It produced "textbook" beads on these thicknesses using Lincolns published "example" operating parameters for NR 211 MP wire (found on Lincoln's website). As I was unable to set the wire feed lower than 70 inches per minute, I couldn't get the amperage low enough to get what I desired regarding the bead aesthetics I was looking for on the 18ga. I made due using plug welds where I could and skipping around applying staggered welds to the rest. As my travel speed had to be fast to avoid burn thru, my bead aesthetics suffered. That said, 18ga is a challenge even with my other welder; a gas shielded MIG machine. As a 3/4 inch bead length is pretty much a little more than a running tack, good looks would be hard to achieve using any process...except TIG. Nonetheless, it worked acceptably on the 18ga. And, it performed superbly on the 16ga and thicker...with stellar bead appearance and minimal spatter...that scrapped of quite easily with just my chipping hammer. Conclusion; this welds really well for what it is priced at. Furthermore, I absolutely enjoyed using it. I'd buy it, again.

I did have to turn the temp and wire speed down some as it seemed to penetrate a little too well on what I started out with. I was welding stainless to mild steel for an exhaust system. Great little welder so far and it is very compact and easy to move. No need for a welding cart for this guy.

A little annoying just have to be more careful or you end up with a long run out. Just keep wire snips close. The lighter weight is pretty awesome.
