I normally NEVER buy Harbor Freight welders, but I needed something to plug into a 110 at some of the chain stores I service when I cant leave my leads in the doorways. I was seriously considering the Miller maxstar 150 STL. I could not bring myself to spend that kinda money on something so small. So I started doing some research an found this little 80 amp Inverter ( DC )! 99% of the 30 reviews I read were good. After getting it out of the box and burning some rod, the first thing I did was replace that crappy stinger. It does good for what I bought it for. I also bought a tig lead and have not had the chance to try that out yet. I cut some 1/8 scraps and welded them up using 3/32 6011. Seems to get very good penetration. The beads dont look to bad either. With everything I got it came in at $175 bucks with 20% cupons ans 2 year replacement warranty. I would recomend this to anyone, just keeping in mind that it is only 80 amps.
