    Exceeds my expectations so far

    This is an inverter stick welder that's tig capable, dual voltage 110v and 220v, puts out 140 amps, and has a digital amperage display. At work I only weld with Millers so I wasn't expecting much for a welder at this price and figured I could risk the 250 bucks. I live in Hawaii so I was happy it included free shipping and the item arrived fast in about 10 days. I opened the box and included were : welder, plastic case, nice solid electrode holder and ground clamp w/leads and connectors, tig torch with lead and hose, tig torch accessories (4 inch back cap, collets, ceramic cup), handy little wire brush/slag hammer all in one tool, welding mask with handle, and shade 10 filter lens. The welder had a 240v plug on it I had never seen before. It's similar to the outlet for my dryer but a bit smaller. I went to home depot and found the female plug for it and made a pigtail adapter so I could run it on a 110v/15amps. I plug it in and it turned on and I played with the amperage selector.

    Good welder for the money

    0 4/5 C. Thompson - See all my reviews This review is from: EVERLAST PowerARC 140 140amp Lift Start TIG / Stick IGBT Welder Dual Voltage (Tools & Home Improvement) I have only tig welded with this unit, but it performs like some high priced compact welders out there. Compact, digital amp meter, smooth arc, packaged well. It does not come with a hose connector for tig welding, but that part can be found on the internet. Very handy for shop and onsite use. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 31, 2012

    Great welder at affordable price, customer service never replied

    If I was reviewing just the welder I would give it 5 stars. I paid $30 less because there was a refurbished unit listed. The unit came and looked pretty much brand new. You could tell the torch had been used, but it was perfectly functional. The welder works amazing. For as small as it is I didn't expect it to weld all that great. 10 years ago I had a cheap welder that was very small you could barely get it to burn a hole in a beer can. Not so with this welder. Very powerful even with 110volt. I like to weld a little on the hotter side and this wasn't an issue for me. I made an adapter that allows me to switch between 110 volt and 220 volt. So far I haven't had any jobs that required the additional voltage so the ability to weld pretty much anything from a 110v outlet is very convenient. The digital display is nice. The quick connect terminals are nice. The Tig portion looks well made, though I have yet to try it. I am 100% satisfied with the welder by itself.

    A wealder that does its job.

    DuroStar made a great portable welder/generator. When I first got it, it was delivered by FEDEX on a pallet. It requires that "some assembly required" type deals where you put things like, Wheels, handles, support legs, and air in the tires. But not only that, the battery you see on the picture here, DuroStar did not supply a ground wire to make a connection for the ignition start. So I had to make one. Note: Make sure that some of the coating on the frame is bare for the ground wire to work, there is a small hole to bolt it to it. The generator also comes with two plug-ends for the welder, one positive, one negative, but DuroStar did not supply the line feed or the clamps either. So I had to go to my near-by hardware store and buy 20 ft of line and two claps for it. Note: The clerk will ask you what size the line is, tell him its a size two. So just when you think that I'm done, the company gave me metric round-over nuts that didn't go all the way in cause the threads where to long... 4/5 V.

    90 Amp Wire Feed Mig Welder

    0 5/5 Kevin - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: 90 Amp 120v Wire Feed Portable Mig Welder Non Gas Welding Fabrication Welding Set This is a fine welder for the price. Have done a few different jobs with it and it has held up well. The only drawback I had was to remove the tension spring on the wire spool to get the wire to feed freely. This is my first wire feed unit and with a little practice I was laying down a good smooth bead in no time flat. I have repaired a job box lid and installed a new exhaust system on my son's Cherokee truck without any overheating issues. The included plastic handheld style face shield came in useful when I hit a tight spot were my helmet would not fit. The tip does get dirty so you might plan on using an anti splatter nozzle gel and get a tip cleaning kit if you don't have one handy. The unit was packaged well and arrived in good condition. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 23, 2012

    Cost-effective Emergency Power

    I bought this generator in preparation for hurricane Irene. Ordered it on Wen., it arrived on Fri., just in time to set it up before the storm (can't beat Amazon Prime!). The generator was easy to set up and started in one pull. This generator provided power sufficient to run the refrigerator, a mini-split a/c unit, TV, and a couple of fluorescent lights for two days. Under this load, a full tank (4 gallons) lasted around 12-14 hours. This unit appears to be a Chinese import so I do have my doubts about long-term reliability, never the less, the DS4000 appears surprisingly well-constructed and capable for the price.Pros:InexpensiveEasy to OperateRelatively Quiet (compared to a 22" lawn mower)CompactEasy to read fuel gaugeCons:Recommended oil change interval of 20 hours (change the oil every other time you fill the gas tank?)Oil drain obscured by frame below (as oil drains it runs along the frame and makes a mess)... 4/5 H.

    Great unit for a great price!

    I ordered this generator after the last season of hurricanes and storms in Northeast USA. My house is in a flood prone area and I wasn't going to go through another entire hurricane season with sleepless nights. My old generator stopped working last year so I knew I was in the market for a new one.I paid $299 for this generator off of Amazon and another $39 for the wheel kit (DuroStar DS4000S-WK Wheel Kit for DS4000S). As of writing this review, the generator is down to $289.00. Either way, I would have paid $350 for this unit!The packaging was great. There was no damage to the unit during shipping. My biggest complaint about packaging is that some oil seemed to seep out of the unit and onto the box so I had to be careful when opening it up. I ended up having to wipe the units frame down with a rag to dry it off. The unit does not ship with oil, but someone must have put oil in it at one point to test it out because there was a lot of oil in the box... 5/5 Trevor Mankus (Hatboro, PA United States) - See all my reviews, June 5, 2012

    Setup was easy - Add Oil & Gas one pull cord and up and running

    We have used over the last 3 days to power fridge, 2 fans, charge mobile phones and laptops and run a few lights. We are getting approx a run time of just over 13 hours on one tank (4 gallon) of gas.Last night even hooked up the tv and cable so our son could watch some tv. Nick, Nick, Nick, Nickeloden. :)This morning it powered the coffee maker and iron so we could be awake and wrinkle free.I really did not expect the generator to run as long as it did on one tank so very happy with the purchase.Next thing to purchase is something to cover it in case of heavy rain. Setup a tarp over table with bungee cords last night but would like something quicker to setup.If we continue to have the power outage problem here in Oak Park we may look into the natural gas generator that hooks into electric system and fails over automatically. As always we will try to get it from Amazon our favorite store.We give the DuroStar... 5/5 Dennis Podgorski "Dennis Podgorski - @xgolferx" (Chicago (Center of the World)) - See all my reviews, July 13, 2011

I am a metal sculptor with twenty years of experience welding. I recently bought one of these machines on a whim. I needed a cheap way to weld parts together quickly. I did not know what to expect, but thought it worth a try. Without a doubt it was a great investment. I have used the unit quite a bit and have found it to be a real trooper. The one weakness I have found is that it has a short duty cycle. If I want to run a 2 foot long bead, where I am constantly going (at about 60amps) and burning through sticks, it will put itself in cooldown mode after about a foot. But I am cool with that and now know what it can and can't do. Just weld a bit and then step away for 5 mins. I really like the variable amp adjustment a lot- I can really fine tune things in to the way I want.A great addition to my studio without a doubt. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 18, 2011

Light: 1.9 kg and very small (compared to the competition), and you don't have to worry about nothing: if detects the voltage of the outlet your are plugin it to and automatically converts to the opposite voltage, like 220 --> 110 or 110 --> 220. But the best part is that you don't need to change fuses as this one comes with a thermal fuse, meaning: if you over connect appliances to the converter if will automatically go off and the you just need to hit the RESET button.

    First off, I did not purchase this welder at amazon. I picked this up at my local Lowe's. Same machine. The welder itself is built very well, and I have not even had it shut off once on me while I have been welding. It is also very small and portable; you can take it just about anywhere you want. The only problem is that you can only produce so much current from a standard household outlet! Because of this, it is critical that the work piece is as clean as possible. When the work piece is clean, the amps are set right, the right welding rod is used, and you have had enough practice unless you have already learned to weld like I had before I bought this, it produces rather pretty welds for such a small machine. It did a really pretty job on my homemade go-kart, and that was 1/4" steel. Down to the point, this welder is just about as good as it gets for one that can plug into a standard outlet.Tips:Get a decent welding hood...the hand shield will work for other people... 5/5 Lil' Johnny - See all my reviews This review is from: Campbell Hausfeld WS0990 115-Volt Stick Welder (Tools & Home Improvement) First off, I did not purchase this welder at amazon.

    Welder Amazing

    First welding is art and skill, both generally need practice.I have 20 amp breakers, 12gauge wiring and outlets rated for 20 amps. Check it all 4 times. i use a 12 gauge extention cord the coord on the welder is short and the leads aren't any longer. that being said, i spent hours working on high running about 2 lbs of rod, and no heat from the welder cord or extention cord. This and a 12 gauge extention cord makes a really compact welder that can get out and be used, the weight is about 20lbs, easy one handed. it's smaller and lighter than the tool box i lug around the house, so portablilty is excelent i regularly use it in the yard, driveway, garage. my lights and welder are on the same circuit, no issues so more or less the "high" setting is probly using around 15 amps, and the low less then 10. don't be afraid of having other things on the circuit.Get some 6013, and practice that on low, don't touch high. then when you can strike an arc consistantly gets... 5/5 James Stallings "Hacker and tinker" (Virginia) - See all my reviews, February 19, 2013

    I HAVE NEVER WELD BEFORE

    0 5/5 NOTAWELDER - See all my reviews This review is from: Campbell Hausfeld WS0990 115-Volt Stick Welder (Tools & Home Improvement) I had mt atv plow rip apart on me last year. Figured the 100 would be a good try to save 300 for a new blade. I agree with the others, the sticks it came with would not strike 50% of the time. Frustrated I went to Youtube. After a 10 minutes of browsing I tried it again with the rods I bought ( 1/16 6013 )Welds were horrible, to start. 30 min later they were better. An hour later they resembled actual welds. Day 2 was better, I was able to take some 1/8 inch steel and weld it onto the back and sturdy it up.OverallI bought new Rods and a better maskPRACTICE!!! Two days and I am confident with throwing a couple pieces together and am sure it will hold.FAR BETTER THAN A NEW PLOW BLADE 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 26, 2013
