My wife bought me this machine for Christmas and while she usually doesn't get me exactly what I want, this time she did great. I use this welder for all sorts of projects and it is so easy to use. I love that it is only a 120 volt machine because I can use it anywhere and it even works off my generator if I need to get away from the shop.
I have owned this MiG welder for about 3 years now and have used it on more than a few jobs and it always come through. Welds a steady bead and I haven't had it quit because of it overheating. I do wish they would make a spool gun to fit this model. All around a great little machine for the money.
Great around the farm. Easy to use and very versitile. Makes stick welding an ancient art. I especialy like it to work on crafts and smaller pieces of equipment. Economical and affordable to the average homeowner.
I bought this welder several years ago for doing light welding around the home and on job sites. Ive used it for auto repair (panels, exuhst, ect.) and setting railing on houses and offices. Ive never had a problem with it, its allways been a smooth little welder running it with flux core and as a MIG.
Out of the box this unit is easy to set up and is ready to go in minutes. Being able to handle welding needs using domestic household voltage and current make this an ideal machine for the workshop or farm. With little or no skill and a bit of practice you can obtain fit for purpose results at a very reasonable price
I have had this welder for about 1 1/2 years. The 120 volt power makes it easy to use almost anywhere. Set up is easy so you will be welding in no-time. I have not tried using it with gas yet but do not see any issues if I wanted to.
I purchased this for use in a theatrical shop where we do limited welding. We have experienced no difficulties with it at all, welding with or without gas. The beads are smooth, the settings are easy to understand, and it is a simple machine on which to teach beginning students. If the budget would allow, I would purchase a second machine.
I use the welder for exhuast and body panel work at home. General build quality is good. I have constant wire feed rate, and binding issues. It makes it hard to run long or precise beeds. I wasn't expecting the same quality as the Miller machines I use at work, but I was expecting more. I wish I would have spent a couple hundred more and bought a better machine.
When I purchased this welder, I only needed to do a few minor repairs on a trailer. I didn't want to spend a lot of money on a Lincoln or Miller, so I was looking for something that would do the job without a lot of cost. When I ordered the Clarke, I was expecting a welder that was made in China and would last me a few years and then just sort of fall apart. I was pleasantly surprised, when it arrived, to find a very nice welder that was made in Italy by a UK company. I used the welder to do the repairs I needed, and have even do some more work with it. It has impressed me every step of the way with not only ease of use, but some quality welds. For the price, I am very pleased with the product.
