    Kickinghorse welders

    Has anyone ever used or owned an Kickinghorse welding machine. Just wondering if they are a decent machine. Or if its just another cheap welder that's not gonna do what it's supposed to. Thanks guys

    There's no free lunch. At those prices I wouldn't trust them. Its clear they are just rebranded Chicom stuff, same as you will find on ebay or Amazon. I would rather buy from Amazon (not sold by amazon for a third party seller, but actually dealing with Amazon themselves.) At least then you have a decent chance of getting good customer service.

    Honestly, if you are new, buy an old transformer based stick welder and focus on learning stick welding. It will make you better at MIG and TIG later on. If you really want to buy new, look at the ESAB rogue 180i or the new HTP America Inverarc 160

    Yeah, stick welding is where its at! You can do more things with a DC welder, weld Steel, SS, aluminum and cast iron. You can TIG weld with too, also cut metal or bevel plates and pierce holes also Carbon Arc gouging al though you'll need a aircompressor. I love to use a mig welder in the shop, so much faster.
    It seemed like a good idea at the time!

    I don’t know what your price point is, but you can totally buy a decent starter stick welder for around $200 dollars (and honestly much cheaper). Personally I would recommend, since I am a beginner myself, buying the TIG 200D from PrimeWeld. It’s just around $375-$400 (Stick and Tig Machine), they have fantastic customer service, plus (yes it’s an inverter machine, it’s only $400 what can you expect) it has TIG capabilities and comes with a little TIG torch set up and foot pedal so you can do TIG once you learn stick (Just buy an argon cylinder, tungsten, and a regulator and you’re good to go). It’s a 200 amp machine which means you’ll be able to weld just about any thickness you will work with as a beginner/ hobbyist.

    One thing to keep in mind, the PRIMEWELD is a DC machine and won't do aluminum if you ever get into aluminum.
