    Titanium Welders

    Anyone running any of the Titanium Welders. Just wondering what everyone thinks of them.

    Re: Titanium Welders

    Because I needed a flux core and the HF 90 POS I had really sucks at welds you don't have to grind a lot and the Alph TIG isn't going to work outside unless I use stick with it I got the Titanium 125. I looked at and read a bunch of reviews that basically said the 125 is the welder you hoped to get when you bought the 90. It also fixed a couple of my big issues with the 90 (apparently now renamed the 125, but...).

    Anyway miles of difference. The Titanium 125 weld quite well. It's DC and the tip is not energized if the trigger isn't pulled. This welds MUCH closer to a big boy MIG.

    I had been playing with the idea of getting a real MIG but realized with the TIG the work I was likely to be doing with the MIG were small fixes and some assembly and a lot of that would be out doors and where I couldn't get 220V. So this little thing is a really good fit. It's toy small and weighs like 15 lbs and it cost under $200 so...

    The build seems a lot better than typical HF stuff and the fit and finish was very good. Not nearly the amount of plastic and the metal parts look like someone was actually doing QA.

    If anyone is looking for a old HF90 to play with I will be selling it cheap.

    I bought the Titanium MIG 170 and am very pleased with its performance. To date, I have experienced no setup or operational issues. It is convenient for me to be able to run flux core or MIG with either 120V or 240V. I am disappointed that HF has not yet released a compatible spool gun. I've read that a Klutch spool gun can be made to work with the Titanium, but haven't seen one first-hand. If you have any specific questions, feel free to ask.

    I have the titanium unlimited 200. I really like it. I have a Hobart tool mate 100 and then upgraded to the titanium and havenít had any trouble out. Had it about 7 months now. Havenít tried tig yet but I will when I find a good deal on an argon cylinder.

    Titanium Stick 225 is nice machine. runs 6010 at 150 amps or less on 230volts. can pull a 3/16" long arc. not sure why not rated 6010 at over 150 amps, dont have to use special switch or plug for 6010 it just runs if under 150 amps on 230 volts
    .
    on 115 volts at 70 amps cannot pull a long 6010 arc cause thats max amps on 115 volts, runs 6011 ok. its a hot 70 amps that is i also could run 3/32 7018 too. many small 115 volt welders amp knob says 70 but feels much less. this welder 70 amps feels very hot for 3/32 6011. i could see using 60 amps or less with 3/32 6011 rod
    .
    on 115 volts it pulls like 20 amps at max so obviously have problems on 15 amp circuit breaker

    Recently bought unlimited 200.
    I'd say I'm pretty happy with it. I didn't stick weld and tig weld with it yet but MIG welding with flux core looks pretty good.
    Someone said the numbers on the panel are badly visible when you're working outdoors, yeah kinda.

    I just got through building log racks with mine and ran out of solid wire so I switched over to flux core. I shouldíve just stick welder them and been done faster. I love the versatility of a multi process welder.

    they dont recommend using a extension cord but I was welding at 60 amps using 3/32 6011 on 115volts with 50 foot 12ga extension cord (20 amp circuit) yesterday with no problems. I was whipping or long short long arc , etc welding. welding machine not heavy, easy to bring up from basement to the garage and use as needed and put back in basement when done.
    .
    Trend now a days is leaving garage uncluttered relatively empty as people use it as a patio and or use propane grill and or sit in garage with door open all day. many put or store welding equipment in basement or backyard storage shed, easier if machines are small and light and easy to move around
