    This...all day. https://www.harborfreight.com/weldin...put-63618.html

    They offer a risk free 1 year trial period. If for any reason you don't like it in that year, you bring it back for a full refund. Comes with everything you need except the bottle of argon...foot pedal, regulator, torch, etc. The Everlast Powerarc 161STH is kind of interesting (I like the stick welding features better-hot start and dig functions), but once you throw in a foot pedal it is more money, plus you have to pay the shipping, and it is a worthless warranty in my opinion (mail order only, after the first 30 days, you have to pay to ship the unit back and forth for service, at your expense, no 1 year trial period). If there is a Harbor Freight local to you, I think that's the ticket.

    It’s an all inclusive machine, with a good balance of features to price. Harbor Freight has really got in a good offering with these budget friendly welders. 1 year risk free, local, and priced right.

    There are of course options in red, and blue flavors if that’s what you like. But I’d choose the Vulcan over an Everlast, Amico, Lotos, etc anyday. All depends on your preference.
