Need to buy a new MIG Welder.
 
Will be used for body work, custom fabrication and roll bar/cage work.
The 130Amp one I have has broken and I never did put on the gas portion.
 
 
This is a GREAT price from what I have found.
It is a 135Amp, should have no problem welding up to 1/4"
 
 
What do y'all think?

Carl, I think thats a great deal. Helmet, cart, good welder and free shipping to your door. Can't beat that deal with a stick!
I paid $500 with free shipping on my Lincoln 175 but it's 220 volt. I also did not get a cart or a welding helmet. I rent my tank of gas. No one here will fill a private owned tank. I  traded my oxy/ace tanks in for free rental on them. I just pay for the gas when I need them filled.
Good luck.    Ron

looks like a rebadged Lincoln, very similar to my WeldPak100 machine. i don't see any mention of drive rolls or capability of running .030"/035" wire? if it is a Lincoln, it probably has the flippable drive rolls like mine but you may want to call Eastwood to verify. fluxcore capability is pretty handy if you should run out of gas & need to do a quick job that doesn't need to be pretty.
 
not a bad deal at all especially if you want the cart(i made a cart for mine) & helmet. you can save $100 w/o the cart if you go to a Chicago Electric or other discount tool house brand  but the 3 yr warranty, cart, helmet & free shipping make up the difference if you need em not to mention the Lincoln? quality

Well just spent under $100 to repair my Astro 130. Instead of buying a new one.
 
New tensioner and parts, and a new wire sleeve.
