    Lug - The only credibility getting ruined around here is Everlast's. Why does every reply have to be so defensive and full of bad attitude? I used to be on the everlast forum 5 years ago when i first bought my (excellent) Powertig 200DX. I had many exchanges with Oleg and you over the years and you guys were pleasant and helpful. Why are you always so snarky now? It might be funny from some garage welder, or some haggard old pipeline welder, but that attitude is a bit disappointing from a manufacturer. When people make observations or ask questions about your products, there is no need to be insulting or critical of them or their question or observation. I just dont get it. I am on several welding sites, and i never see Miller, Lincoln, Hobart, or even HyperTherm respond so defensively and condescending to customers and potential customers. I imagine that sometimes somethings get lost in the translation, and some grammar might seem a bit fractured due to translating between native languages, but the general tone of annoyance everlast seems to project throughout the various threads seems odd and unique.

    In my opinion, your machines are great. I probably would not have a TIG welder if i had to buy a blue or red one. My machine runs great and does all i need it to do. As far as i see, your products get great reviews all over the internet. They practically sell themselves. Why be so combative with the public? it is not necessary, and gets to be a bit off-putting. If i was a potential customer trying to decide on making a purchase, i would think that if company reps have this attitude, i could imaging the attitude the tech support or customer service would display, after they already have my money.

    Re: Now I've done it. I bought an Everlast!

    Today at work I was welding up a bunch of 14ga 2" square tubing and the Lincoln Power Mig 256 decided cough up it's control board so I ran home and grabbed my Power IMig 140E then went right back to welding. I ended up using the Lincoln as a welder cart for the little Everlast. It was an Power Imig sitting on a Power Mig. One year later and the little green welder is still going strong.

    I do get a kick out of using the 140 for .250 trailer hitches. Guy is slightly bonkers.. Even the much more Powerful Tweco 211 on 120 output is not a machine to use for .250 trailer hitches. Selling a shop 250 machine is another bright move to tell all the people on Youtube looking for info..

    Yeah,

    I've been tempted many times to get one of those potent, little Everlast iMIG 140E units. They're priced well right now, too. But my Everlast TIG unit really does everything I want to do right now.

    Yeah,

    And I've revisited the ViperMIG 180 that Gamble carries on Amazon. I think you even gave it a nod here once too. I mean, it's dual-voltage, 180 amps, inductance adjustable, and burnback adjustable, all for $500, delivered to your door. That's a pretty potent value too, for a sub-200 amp MIG unit.

    But, if I do get a MIG unit someday, I'll probably go BIG, and get one with single or double-pulse.

    Who's using a little mig for 0.25 trailer hitches? I'm going to give them a wide birth.
