I bought this one from HF as an open box return with a 5 day warranty for around 60% off. I have not used it to its full potential and have only ran flux core through it, but got it for the arc and Tig capabilities. But it is much better than the other old mig welders they had. There are actual wire speed and voltage settings. The arc is also much smoother.

I’ve been liking my titanium 170 from hf. I like it better then my old Miller 135, but probably doesn’t compare to the newer machines. I was gonna go with the Lincoln 180 but couldn’t pass up the deal. I like being able to run dual voltage. So I can steal power from my neighbor for the heavy stuff but run it in my garage for the lighter stuff lol. I’m very impressed with it. Specially for the price. The extended no questions asked warranty is a good idea, get a new machine every 2 years, or upgrade.
