No thrills but good solid Welder

"Several people in my shop have used this welder. Its mounted on a service truck and travels around. It starts every time and welds great. The generator is sufficient for what we use it for. With over 100 hours on it, we haven't had a lick of problems and I'm going to buy another one tomorrow for another service truck."
