Overview of Features

Four Welding Processes: With this welding machine you can use MIG, Flux-Cored, DC TIG and DC Stick welding processes. Ideal to have all in one piece of equipment if you need to move between jobs, or don’t have the space for multiple welders.

Lightweight and Portable: Weighing an impressive 40lbs unboxed (18.14kg), this unit is easily portable compared to similar models on the market.

Dual Voltage Inputs: Supporting both 230V and 120V inputs, you can use this welder on a commercial site or on a home power input (at reduced output if input is 120V).

Inverter Technology: You can power this welder via an appropriate generator – be sure to check the voltage and hertz of the generator prior to use.

210A Output: This unit has a high power output, allowing you to tackle any job thrown at you. Using the MIG process you can weld up to 5/16 inch with mild or stainless steel. You can weld Aluminum up to 3/16 inch. DC Stick allows you to weld up to 5/32 in. stick electrodes.

Ready, Set, Weld: An interesting aspect about this welder is the “Ready. Set. Weld” feature. This allows you to setup the machine much quicker, and Lincoln claim you can go “from box to weld in under two minutes”. Here is a video demonstrating this feature:

 

Will this welder suit my needs?

This welder is ideal for someone with low to mid-level experience with welding, either in a commercial or home setting. As this welder provides a simple and effective way to program the machine, which is great if you can’t remember all of the settings for your desired material. As this welders power output is 210A it can tackle a large range of material thicknesses, which should suffice for the vast majority of welders.

This product wouldn’t be suitable for someone who needs to weld Aluminum, I feel an AC/DC unit would be better suited and more cost effective. You can weld Aluminum with this welder, however you need to purchase a separate spool gun. If you require near 210A for extended periods of time, you would be better suited for a higher rated welder or a water cooled welder.  The duty cycle for this machine is 25% at 200A – if you need this sustained for extended periods of time it may be more cost effective to opt for a different welder.
