    Yeswelder mig 250 pro

    Decent welder? Looking for a mig setup that is 500-550$. Saw the yeswelder but never heard of them.

    Thanks for any input

    Hard pass. I have one and can attest that it is not a 250 amp machine. Maximum output when using lift tig is 209 amps. I have measured voltage and amperage in manual mig welding mode and it struggles to exceed 180 amps. Synergistic settings are mess. Everything that the panel displays seems 20% off including wire feed speed, which is consistent with values provided during testing. With that said, it does weld fine when setup properly.

    Personally never used the Mig 180, but know a few who use them daily. Seem to be an excellent mig for the price point, and the warranty cannot be beat. I do own a Primeweld 225X, and can assure you the quality is much better than the Yeswelder product.

    Bought one. AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE.
    Terrible roller system, nearly inaccessible to feed wire in...which you'll be doing a LOT because Birdsnests galore no matter WHAT setting or even roller I use. And yes, I'm using THEIR wire. Practically zero support...put a support ticket in and its now been 3 weeks...crickets.

    Needless to say, I am asking them for my money back...hell I don't care if I need to pay a restock fee, I just want the piece of cr@p out of my shop.

    Sorry to hijack.... do you have issues on low amp ac work? My pw 225 doesn't seam to go below say 30 amps... startup is an inrush of about 50 amps when set at 70....

    Update: Yeswelder did the honorable thing and refunded my purchase in full. So Kudos to them for standing behind their guarantee.

    When TIGing low amps with the PW225X, try running it from 120VAC. It seems like my welder will go to a lower setting on 120 than on 240.
