ok guys ive took your advice and am going to go for an parweld welder and have just seen this and thinking of buying it, however they give 2 years warranty while i thought there was only a 1 year standard warranty on these.
what you think?
is this cheaper elsewhere, if so let me know please??

Check out the Duty cycle of the welder. She could have a 10% duty cycle. which means that some day that you have a big welding job on and youd be welding away and then stop.... Board fries..... the more % duty cycle the welder has the more consistant work you can do... hence the more expensive the welder is ...... my guess is that this machine is very cheap... tooo cheap and she would probably be ok for a while but when you get into heavy plate (4mm) and have alot to do ie. you have a 5min welding job to do.....you will curse the day you bought her.

try and buy one with 60% duty cycle... cost about 600 e but will last a life time.

Ok so im not going to bother with a gasless one and go for the arc one instead ....

Would this one be a good buy(link below) need to buy one soon as I have some welding to do on ford 4600 Q cab frame and a door and its quite thin the metal too so would this be ok to do the job.

ALSO there is a SIP one mentioned in the above posts, is it any good, 2 yr warranty


Did you buy the Parweld welder after 2pack???
