I received it yesterday and actually welded with it today. Great product I need about three more. They run as nice and smooth as the 7018 rods I use in my welding class. These weld really nice and the slag comes off pretty easy! Sold the welder about a year ago but now I'm looking at getting another soon.

The fact is that the ESAB 92051130 Arc Welder B000LDHHZM was the ESAB Arc Welders that we graded most highly. Even so, there were several other truly high quality ESAB Arc Welders worth showcasing here that just barely missed the mark.

ESAB is yet another major manufacturer of Arc Welders. They produce the tool next up on our rundown. ESAB's Arc Welders are no exception. It was great to try out the 0700000401. I was very satisfied using this tool!

This Arc Welder is just $155.00. That is a fantastic deal for a quality Arc Welder like the 0700000401 by ESAB. If you unsure about our top choice, I'd consider the ESAB 0700000401 next. It's a high quality tool at a great price.

The ESAB 0387-0031 and the 0387-0071 by ESAB are well worth looking into also. Both tool brands are known for their top quality Arc Welders. Both tools are top rated as well. Customers gave the 0387-0031 an average rating of 4.5/5 stars. Contrast that to the 0387-0071 which holds an average rating of 5.0/5 stars.

The 0387-0031 by ESAB gives several truly premium features including Fuel gas usage - acetylene, hydrogen. The 0387-0071 by ESAB however, is very competitive offering Gas Service: Acetylene, Hydrogen and even Size: 4.

I would be eager to recommend both of these ESAB Arc Welders

I'm running an ESAB 160 on about 45 amps and these rods run great. I had to weld a 2" pipe to a steel plate and this help keep the pipe in place. I wish I had purchased these years ago! Really like it, it's my first welder but its awesome. When I first opened it I got hit with that new welder smell, so good.

I also used a sturdier cotter pins to hold the rear wheels on. The top handle is by far easier to use and less cumbersome. This is an awesome cart for your home shop or garage. I use a short cord into it, and don't over push it, and it does well. Works as described and when you turn it off the crap falls off too.

I have a small machine shop and build tooling often. This one fired right up out of the box with no worries. The ESAB weighs around 75lbs and doesn't lay down any better of a weld. I had to weld a 2" pipe to a steel plate and this help keep the pipe in place. These are some awesome rods.

This thing can't weigh more than 10 lbs and its super portable. I use a short cord into it, and don't over push it, and it does well. I take it with me for on site jobs. I would highly recommend this cart. I'm running an ESAB 160 on about 45 amps and these rods run great.
