I bought this welder on sale. It is a great value. I have put two rolls of flux core through it and I have not had a jamming issue yet. Set it up the tension properly and it works fine.

bought this welder a little over a year ago. Have never had a single issue with it and I have used it many times over its rated duty cycle on its highest setting. So its fairly durable. I've put through about 5 spools of wire now. Just set it up a go, light and portable. Its meant for thinner metals but with proper prep can handle thicker stuff as well. Great for at home DIY.

Bought this welder just over 6 months ago and have loved it since then. This welder is awesome for the small little projects that you have around the house. I would recommend this welder to any DIY person. Overall I am very happy with my purchase and would not think twice about buying a another welder from Princess Auto.

I purchased this welder on sale for $150 and it works very well for my needs. I owned a small stick "arc" welder before this and found it kind of frustrating, It's no big secret that a MIG welder is easier than Arc welders but I found out for myself how much easier once I used this one. It may not be enough for a professional welder but for a DIYer, it'll do the job very well.

I have never welded before but when I saw this for $150 on boxing day I could not resist. So far this welder has been working great and I try and get in daily practice with some scrap metal I salvage from my B-I-L. Some of these pieces are as thick as 3/8 and the welder has not had a problem with the stock flux wire being used. No trips or shutdowns as I try and keep the periods of welding short as suggested on another site and that seems to help. Also bought the gel and clean up tip and nozzle.

To those having problems, please read the manual for the welder. If your tension is too tight you will have feed problems. 2nd the tips are supposed to get hot as welding usually gives heat, also gas will leak when the welder is off because it's supposed to, so turn off the gas and problem is solved. I am not trying to be a jerk here but so many people buy stuff and fail to read the instructions properly, also for the guy that commented about the non adjustable heat settings you have to flip the switch on.

This is a good welder but I wish I could adjust the heat setting. I got it on sale. It's a good deal for the monney no problems so far. Good light duty welder for the home guy.

I've had this welder for about a year and have used it for light repairs with some excellent and some not so good results: A weld repair on my snowblower impeller that I was able to install in a vise went really well (metal about 1/16" to 1/8" thick), but working under the truck welding a bolt on sheet metal didn't work so well with the welder creating some holes in the material as I was welding it. However you have to consider it was only my second time using the welder (I had some prior stick welder experience) and the working conditions were difficult (poorly cleaned sheet metal welded upside down). If there is something that really bugged me, it is the wire feed. I had a hard time spooling it in the first time, as it wouldn't get through. I finally dismantled the tip and got it to work afterwards, but it was a struggle for a little while. In use, a splatter on the tip may make it stuck as well. I have since learned you can get tip lubricant to help and once the wire feed is properly tensioned it's fine. As there are only two intensity settings, you'll find you need to play with the feed rate to get the proper results. So yeah, it works, just don't expect miracles. When on sale it's a no brainer. if you live in the boonies and have old yard equipment it'll quickly pay for itself just in time and gas saved to go to a repair shop and for that it's great, as it gets the job done. But if you have any experience and are planning anything more than just a few repairs it'll probably just aggravate you and you'd be much wiser to look for something better, which, in this case, will probably mean something that costs at least 2 to 4 times as much. Bottom line, at under $150 it's certainly great value for the money and it will quickly pay for itself and is, in my opinion, a decent beginner's wire fed welder. It'll do fine as long as you don't expect too much of it.

Great welder for the price, but you get what you pay for. The only issues I've had are within the torch. It leaks argon when not in use. Wire gets caught in the feed mechanism and snaps off, allowing the rest of the wire roll to unwind, which is funny the first time, but rewinding a million feet of wire isn't fun. After about 30 seconds of welding, the tip gets hot and the feed slows down to the point where no welds can be made.

I had feeding issues that I could not resolve by changing tension. I returned it and upgraded to the Lincoln 180 which is awesome
