Purchased THIS welder OVER 25 Years ago and, STILL WELDS GREAT!!
Purchased THIS welder OVER 25 years ago and, STILL welds GREAT!!! I have had Trucks all my adult life and, heavy equipment too for a while. Never been a "wealthy" man so I have always bought used equipment and, fixed it myself! And, I can tell you first hand THIS Welder HAS the POWER to penetrate HEAVY Metal! Always be sure to clean ALL your surfaces! (ground too) The Trick to getting it to Stick is PENETRATION!! The ONLY other thing I can say is that I have never had any formal training as a welder but, I NEVER had ANY weld fail. NEVER! Again the trick is PENETRATION and, CLEAN your surfaces! That being said, many "REAL" welders (like certified ones) have told me that IF I liked welding with THIS welder I should try the AC/DC version. They ALL say the DC welder works better and, is easier and, makes a nicer weld. Well after I returned to Pittsburgh from NC. I went to work for one of the local trucking companies and, they had an AC/DC version of this welder and, I used it many times and, I can NOT honestly tell you that I noticed any appreciable difference what so ever. Maybe it might have been a little easier to get the rod started. But, I never really had any trouble getting a rod started anyway. Please DO NOT HESITATE for one second. THIS IS A GREAT WELDER! It has NEVER let me down!! NOT EVER!! 26 years atleast! And, I have NOT been nice to it either! Run it hard and, long and, under harsh conditions too! NEVER a problem. GREAT WELDER!

The Lincoln 225 Arc Welder works perfectly, I am very happy with this product. I used a 12000 watt generator to power the welder and it made perfect welds that are strong and held the metal together on a truck frame. My son has driven the truck daily for over a week and the welds are still holding. I would recommend this product.

        It was terrible. The power switch was broke. It wouldn't weld longer than30 second minutes with it over heating and blowing the breaker. I just bit the bullet and got a ranger 250 gxt, and my life is easy now.

        My first AC225 lasted 40 years in a damp garage. Be foolish to abandon a winner.
