This is one welder that is also portable and lightweight with industrial capability. The pulse function increases weld quality and reduces overall heat input to help control burn through on thin metals.
The advantages of this welder for all users include its ease of use, the quick connect gas line allows for a rapid setup. This welder comes with a digital readout for accurate setting of amperage while in torch switch mode. It also has color-coded controls that are easy to find and understand.
The range of accessories it has include a 12ft economy WP 26 series air-cooled TIG torch, 6 feet input power cable, SMAW electrode holder(Stub Style, subject to change), argon regulator, consumable starter pack(does not include Tungsten) and foot pedal.

What we don’t like
- The manual does not provide an in-depth description of all the capabilities and configurations- the elements that should be in the manual are the specifications for each mode and the operational limitations.
- The regulator has a bit of pressure burst upon initial flow (pressure rises a bit when the gas solenoid is off).
- The system has reduced capabilities when powered by 110 volts.
- It does not come as a complete set as some parts you have to buy separately i.e. the Tungsten’s.
