Pros and Cons.
Basically, it is a great welder that can perform various welding processes such as TIG, stick welding and flux core. It is great for a wide variety of materials such as steel, stainless steel and aluminum. It is something that can withstand many years of abuse due to the superior durability. As a whole package, you basically do not need to do anything and it can cover a ton of project scopes with its multiple processes.
The only downside is that it can be a bit picky for the TIG since it only has DC TIG function and not AC TIG so it might not have a cleaning action to have a smooth TIG operation. Nonetheless, it is a seemingly basic multi-process aluminum welder so it is okay for people who are just learning to weld.
In the long run, if you want a welding machine that can take them all then you should go for the Lincoln Electric Power Mig Multi-Process Welder due to its versatility. You will pay more for the brand name, but Lincoln almost always delivers on a quality machine and their support has always been good. I emailed them once and they emailed me back the same day. That is not normal in the welding industry. Imagine trying to get hold of a Chinese made machine’s support team.
