"Product came with instructional video as well as everything I needed to get started! The 110 voltage required is available at every residencial location. I am disable, the stand comes in handy when moving the welder around my shop. The variable settings are right at hand to quickly set and/or change during a welding project. I purchased this product based upon it's literature and a friend's recommendation. Northern Tool's "helpful tools" link, also made it an easy decision to purchase due to the amount of product information available."

value beyond pricing

"As a buyer for a nonprofit agency it is crucial to find the best value for the money we spend on tools and other items. When I purchased the Clarke 130EN the price played a major role in my decision. Little did I know what a value it was. This welder has performed better and exceeded all our needs by leaps and bounds. The machine is high quality and also the included cart has proven quite durable and functional. Don't let the price of this machine scare you it performs as well or better than many more expensive machines and when you add the functionality in with the price this is a real value making it even more of a bargain."

Great little welder

,
April 29, 2007
By ThunderRobo
from Toronto, Canada
"The Clarke 130EN is a great welder to have around the shop for little projects or for times when you dont want to pull out your bigger welders. The Drive motor is pretty strong for a 110V welder, the adjustably is awesome and the fit and finish is good. Flat out, the welder it self is REALLY GOOD, even when put next to my dad's Miller MM180 or our Lincoln 175.
The Regulator that comes with the Clarke is pretty good, it's a Harris Ar/Co2 regulator and is the same ones the comes with the more pricey Millers and Lincolns.
The Rig is made in Italy.... just for the wondering minds.
It comes with 1/2lb of .23 MIG and 1/2lb of .35 FluxCore MIG wire, They are both pretty junk, they always get tangled on the roll. Do you self a favor and pick up some nice Hobart wire when your order.
The cart is pretty solid, the casters and wheels are very smooth and it is very easy to build. The fit and finish is O.K.
The Clarke is a great little rig, and for the price it is hard to beat. It burns wire like our MM180 which cost about 2.5 times as much.
All in all, a GREAT machine and I recommend it to ANYONE who wants to learn how to weld or someone who is looking for a little MIG."

Clarke Mig package

from California
"I am the Lead Mechanic for 17 technicians in 12 satellite locations, we perform fleet maintenance on 1300 vehicles in Southern California and would like to express how much of an excellent package deal this is.
Every company is trying to cut costs, my technicians use this welder for a multitude of welding jobs, the welder is a "Smart Package" at a reasonable cost.
It performs as well as the high dollar machines I have used, easy to adjust and welds perfectly. Most welding is done in the 90 to 130 amp range making this the right choice.
The added bonus is it travels in my service trucks without taking up much room, you can use it on the cart or take it with you, and being 110V means you can plug it in anywhere."

Don't think about it GET IT

"This welder is excellent for the beginner. With dual voltage as well as being able to use with or with out gas makes this welder an awesome addition to you home shop. It is very easy to set up. You will eat up the spool of wire so make sure that you have plenty on hand. Make sure that you purchase the correct safety gear (gloves, apron ETC...) when you get this welder. It came with a helmet as well as a hand held shield so it offers you some flexability with different types of jobs. The instruction manual and the video combined are a great help so make sure that you read and watch them before beginning. The price and the accessories make this a great value compared to the same welder at Eastwood for about 120.00 more."

"I got this because someone recommended it to me and i would do the same. The cart is perfect, and the welder is as good as i could have asked for.
The 1/2 lb spool goes out quick so i would advise to buy another spool of wire while u purchase.
Overall great welder!"
