Reviewer’s Thoughts:

For the person who wants a good weld job and does want to finance a moon rocket. Therefor The Lotos Mig175 175Amp Mig Welder has you covered. It comes with everything you need to get up and welding except for the argon tanks. The Lotos Mig175 can be set up in 10 minutes or less. It is not for production work. Lotos Mig175 175Amp Mig Welder, however, fit the bill for building anything from a custom motorcycle to a fishing boat also Tank workers find it useful in enclosed spaces with the proper precautions. An amateur should never try this and only a pro with the proper breathing equipment and support should attempt it.

However, for the Extreme Home Builder, it is a marvelous way to get the work done. It welds fast and the welds are precise. You have neat welds and they will hold under load as well. Just do not expect to build a submarine. This reviewer gives it two thumbs up.
