      Answer This Question

      A:  The item description lists a couple compatible torches and pedal unit numbers. It's advertised as taking the same tig torches and pedal as the LE31MP. Still waiting on mine to arrive to make sure they work though.

        Great combo welder
        Received the welder in great shape. All parts where present with instructions included. Watched the video on Home Depot website before receiving unit. Easy to change from stick welding to MIG welding. I've only stick welded so excited to try the MIG welding. Easy to load and feed the wire into the unit. Nice having the adapter for 110 volts if I ever do need that. Everything is so easy to change out. The chart on the panel is easy to follow. Family members that know I got this are asking me to give it to them to use. GREAT addition to my workshop.

        Great addition to my work shop!
        First off I would like to say how impressed I am with the build quality of this Lincoln welder. Setup was simple and easy. I was able to start stick welding in about 20 minutes from opening the box. I did a quick butt weld with a 3/32” rod and the arc was smooth and constant. I need to get my weld area setup before I can try the Mig and Tig welding. Having the versatility of the three types of welding all in one unit is great.

            A welcome addition to my tractor shop. The possibilities are endless for projects.
              Welder works good but GOD, on the item's description it's recommended to purchase the wrong Spool gun which is of course sold separately for welding Aluminium. So returning that and ordering the right one set me way back on time for my project. So unprofessional and such an inconvenient!!
                I rally haven't had a chance to try it out yet, but it is a "Lincoln" for roughly the same price as cheapos from other places. I have a Lincoln welder that is roughly 60 years old. Still works great. I noticed they still sell the exact same model.

                The welder does a great job on the 230v setting. Kinda weak on 120v but it would get a small job done.
