    Mig welders?

    Hey all,

    Im looking for a mig welder that's not too expensive. I've found this one 230 amp Single Phase Migwelder | Trade Me that I may be able to pick up for a bargain. But I can't find any info on it, I.e. duty cycle
    I also found this one, MIG Welder Digital Inverter Pro 200A | Trade Me but unsure wether it is gas compatible.

    Requirements are; has to be single phase, needs to be compatible with gas and around 150-200 amps.

    I looked at the Repco ones but they are way down in D/C like 10% at 150.!!

    Thanks Puku

    Oh happy New Year

    Weldwell brought them in from Italy with their nameplate on them. A good 1ph mig. Good duty cycle. The regs are made in their Napier factory. Looks to have a gas minimiser on it to reduce the gas surge when pulling the trigger. The Tregaskis guns they put on them are hard to get parts for. Binzel are good guns with parts everywhere. A good machine to buy however 2nd hand you don't know what you are getting.
    The other mig I have no idea on. Looks Chinese.

    I would go for the Weldwell machine

    Thanks Sako75.
    So if the gun has problems, or would be easier to upgrade it. I'm assuming it's possible if the plugs are the same.

    From memory they have a euro fitting on them. Easy to put a MB24 or MB25 binzel torch on them? you may be able to get torch parts from fletcher steel as they are distributors for Weldwell if there is no other distributor near you.
    weldwell use to be a leading company but now appears to be a shadow of its former self

    It seems the auction has already shot up today. I was thinking if I could get it for $500 it would be a real bargain. What sort of money do you think its worth?
    That gas bottle may need to be checked out next fill, Looks well used to me
