Starting the arc is always the tricky part of stick welding. Starting the arc is always the tricky part of stick welding. I always wonder if I could weld anything and it worked. This is a pretty high quality piece relative to similar Arc Welder available. I'm running on a 15 amp circuit with 50 ft extension cord and have had no problems.

The truth is that the ESAB 92051130 Arc Welder B000LDHHZM was the ESAB Arc Welders that we rated the highest. That being said, there were a range of other really premium ESAB Arc Welders we wanted to show you here that just barely missed first place.

ESAB is yet another top producer of Arc Welders. They build the tool next up on our list. ESAB's Arc Welders are great as well. I was ready to have a go at the model 0700000401 and I was not disappointed!

The ESAB 0700000401 Arc Welder, at $155.00 is an especially great Arc Welder for the money. If you unsure about our top pick, I'd consider the ESAB 0700000401 next. It's a premium quality tool at a great price.

Clean product, everything went as expected. Works as described and when you turn it off the crap falls off too. Liked the compact size of it. I have run a couple of pounds of these rods. It has a plastic cover to protect the display from splatter and dirt.

They run as nice and smooth as the 7018 rods I use in my welding class. Sold the welder about a year ago but now I'm looking at getting another soon. It has a plastic cover to protect the display from splatter and dirt. I use a short cord into it, and don't over push it, and it does well. It also has a great 200A high end.

You can try, and I've been successful, but it is very difficult. This is a pretty high quality piece relative to similar Arc Welder available. All of the settings seem to do exactly what they claim to do. A powerful Arc Welder that gets the job done even at 120v. I would highly recommend this cart.

Liked the compact size of it. They are of course very small in diameter, but the same length as the other rods. These are some awesome rods. Liked the compact size of it. A decent hold but not enough for intended use.
