great welder

Purchased this unit as a work item needed for welding RSJ and fence posts. It totally out performed my old welder and lays great welds using fluxcore wire. Great price, great unit, thoroughly recommend this product. Show details ·  1

Fit for purpose

Being a retired Boilermaker, when I first unboxed this welder I was somewhat sceptical due to the size of the gun,cables and just the general lightweight appearance of everything.
Having now used the machine for a while I must say I am pleasantly surprised at it's capabilities.
If you bear in mind that the machine is intended for DIY backyard use you simply cannot go wrong with this product.
I think it also would be marvellous for anyone learning to weld
There are settings printed inside the spool feed door for pretty well all applications and I have found them to be reasonably accurate, if not, then certainly a good starting point.
Fit for purpose I am very impressed with the welder and happy with my purchase. Show details ·  1

Viper 182 MK2 bundle. Simple quality MIG welding

Only done a few test welds so far. Super easy to use. Plug in gas, put on spool of supplied 0.8mm wire. Follow settings guide inside cabinet and your welding. It's been over 10 years since I regularly MIG welded and this machine made it super easy to jump straight back in the hot seat in my shed at home. Bundle came with Welder, gas regulator, trolley, 0.8mm steel wire, consumables kit, MIG pliers, gloves and auto darkening helmet. Show details ·  1

Does it's job well

Absolutely 100% happy with what this machine does. I do wish there was a package to convert to TIG. However, probably cheaper to upgrade to newer model. If you only need MIG and Stick, this is your machine. Show details ·  1

Easy to set up and easy to use

Most people that see my stick welding suggest that I would be better off using glue. Not so with my Unimig which is easy to set up and use. My first few welds have been strong and clean and I'm looking forward to my next project with it. Show details ·  1
