You have a Euro import that works well and is lightweight to the max. This makes it perfect for contractors and repair people. The homeowner will also find it useful for any DIY welding work. It is not heavy duty like a Miller.It fits in the mid range niche that covers building projects, site work and automotive/motorcycle welding. Gas uses a euro style connector and might take a little getting used to at first. The torch is a standard and is interchangeable. The recommended on is a Trafimet Ergo Plus 15. Others have had good luck with Lincoln and Tweco guns as well.
However, its big selling points are its weight and price. You don't have to kill yourself moving it from job site to job site. The lack of a transformer cuts down on both weight and cost. T still puts out a significant amount of arc current so it will get most work you need to be done. With all this going for it, this reviewer gives it two thumbs up.
