It's a good make. New/used ?

260 amps is way more than is needed for car body work.

Thanks I know it's big alright but it's a vintage truck I'm working on and need some chassis bits welded . I know you would get away with a smaller one for body work

Well, as said it's a good brand and there are agents around the country (parts/service etc). If doing thicker material also then it's fine.

I know this is bit of a Zombie, o it at least a semi-zombie, thread but I have a related question.

I'm in the market for a new MIG and wondered if anyone could make any recommendations and/or sources.
Preferably not UK based.

The usual for auto body restoration, light structural/machinery welding.
25 - 180amp(ish) with a good quality touch.
€500 max.

Not interested in SIP, had a Migmate and it was a ball ache.

Thanks
