"This product has helped greatly on my small hobby farm, and has served 2 fold for welding and electrical power for my tools. I would strongly recommend this product. One of the most outstanding benefits to me is the ability to weld and repair fences several acres away from a power source."

Well built welder/generator

"Purchased this welder/generator 3/3/11 online picked it up today 3/8/11 at the NT store. Unpacked it checked everything out filled it with oil and gas two pulls on the rope it fired up and ran smooth. Checked to make sure the generator worked (it did). Hooked the welding leads in grabbed a aluminum welding rod and a piece of aluminum and started welding. This machine is well built has rubber vibration pads on the motor and generator. It has a lever to set the rpm to whatever you want to run the engine at.The tray on top is nice for storing gloves hammer rods exc. I know its made in China.I looked for one made in the usa they were all $800.00 to $1000.00 more for less than what this machine is. I have a Hobart ac welder but i needed a dc.to weld aluminum out in the field. I would recommend this machine as of now.It has a 3 year warranty on the generator and 2 years on the engine. I'll try and let you know how it holds up in a few months."
