A great welder for the price can be used as a Meg and a stick welder highly recommend it
This is a very well made welder it is relatively lightweight but packs a punch at 175 amps what I like about it is it uses the small 5 kg welding which adds to make in it a lightweight welder compared to some I like the good warranty you get with it plus the extra 6 months by registering online I'm led to believe that you've got some items via redemption and I have yet to look into that that wasn't the reason I purchased it it represents a good bang for your buck

A great welder for a beginner.
I am not a welder by trade and I have only used a stick inverter welder so I had zero experience with a MIG. Because of this, I was hesitant to buy a MIG but decided to go ahead. I found this welder, with the aid of the User Manual (which has a lot of errors but UniMig have addressed this) and Youtube videos, the setup was easy and I made a very reasonable weld on my second attempt. First attempt was was a bit of a disaster :-) :-). I can highly recommend this welder.

My new 175 amp mig is a top welder over the moon from total tool Toowoomba very happy nice machine to use deliveries a nice clean weld very happy with the machine
My new Unimig 175
I purchased my unimig 175A from Hare and Forbes Machinery House the other day, bought it straight home and set it up with the gas, wire and all the other bits and pieces that came with the machine. I found the directions clear and easy the follow, making it an effortless procedure to get started. I got some heavy duty steel and set about trying the Unimig out and it performed flawlessly. I would have no trouble recommending this machine to anyone and especially if you wish to enter the welding market with Gas Shielding simply fantastic.

Great bang for buck welder
Awesome little welder, easy to set up and play.
I bought the 175 after being so impressed with the razor 205.
This welder is just set up for stainless, I was a little surprised it didn’t come with a quick gas connect like the 205 does.
All in all, great welder and easy to use.

Minor nitpicks but otherwise a good reliable machine
I'll start off by saying I've since sold my razorweld 175, but I do miss it. Owned it for about a year and it's new owner is very happy with it, 10 months later.
Negatives for which I took of a star: wire feed could be improved for almost free. If you're running 0.6mm wire it just loves to birds nest on ya, but it's quite easily fixed with a short piece of brass tube (although I used a short piece of a Teflon torch liner) trimmed to fit right up against the rollers. You do get a slightly improved, geared wire feed on the 200 amp version.
Come...s with a 0.8 & 0.9mm drive roller plus a 0.8 & 1.0mm drive roller, for the price they could have done a little better there. Really should have been supplied with a couple of contact tips instead of just one, and it was 0.9mm (with matching red torch liner) where I feel the sweet spot for this unit is 0.8mm, with a blue torch liner. Should have included a quick disconnect for the welding gas ($11 from Supercheap Auto for a nitto style air compressor quick disconnect, don't pay $60+ for a blue one that says argon on it!). That's really it for negatives, real solid machine that never missed a beat and does exactly what you tell it to. SB25 torch is good quality, though it's often hard to find some of the consumables good it. 4m torch length would be much nicer than the 3m or comes with, but oh well. Build quality is not bad, though for the price it could be a touch better and even include pulse settings, but now I'm getting side tracked. Good welder!

Easy to use and set up straight out of the box
Bought this welder for work on my race car and home projects. Set up with 0.9mm gasless wire on some scrap pieces and had it dialed in perfectly to weld exhaust sections together. I am no expert but I was very happy with the result. Great little machine!

This welder seems to be quite a decent unit..
Having completed minimal welding prior, I purchased some Arc electrodes to learn basic MMA..
after welding a few bits of metal together, seemed ok..
I then purchased some Gasless MIG wire..
this is an awesome machine.
I knocked up some basic fabrication easily..
Extremely happy with my purchase!

Great Machine, reliable, tough and easy to use.
I absolutely love my Unimig Razor 175. It is a great machine that I know will work perfectly every time. Parts are easy to get and instructions were very clear. Looking forward to purchasing a Unimig plasma cutter in the near future.
