If you are looking to take your shop or business to the next level in TIG welding capability, the digital inverter-based PowerTIG 255EXT delivers exceptional power and performance at a budget friendly price. In fact, the PowerTIG 255EXT not only has a long list of competitive features but also unique features that distinguishes it from the competition. You'll find surprisingly comptetive performance when comparing feature to feature against the competition such as memory, pulse and wave forms thanks to the digital microprocessor. When you compare the additional features and the price advantage the welder offers such as the advanced AC pulse and stick performance features such as hot start and arc force control , the PowerTIG 255EXT really stands on it's on. Advanced pulse is a new feature introduced on the digital PowerTIG units which improves top and low end performance on Aluminum. It can be set up to increase penetration on thick aluminum up to 25% over what is traditionally accepted as the maximum limit for the maximum output of the welder. Two "Easy Start Up" modes also add to the units versatility while keeping operation simple. The unit also excels as a stick welder featuring hot start time, hot start intensity and arc force control adjustments, making it a perfect welder for E6010 or E7018 welding. Everything on the AC/DC pulse TIG welder has been carefully designed for maximum life and repairability down the road with componentized design and IGBT module components from name brand manufacturers. This make diagnosis and repair a simple and easy process. Several new features have been recently released. The spot weld timer feature allows the operator to make perfect, consistent spot welds when tacking up or welding sheet metal. The unit also has a more convenient way to purge gas and set gas without initiating arc flow with a dedicated purge button. Most importantly the PowerTIG 255EXT operates on 120V or 240V. Maximum output during 120V operation is 150 Amps for TIG, and 120 Amps for stick.

First unit received DOA, second seems to work, fine.

I ordered this new welder to replace a Lincoln TIG welder I bought in 2016. Its still runs but its start up amperage was too high for think aluminum and does not have the features of the Everlast. As stated in the title the first unit I received was dead on arrival. Plugged it in and No Thing! The Amazon seller was helpful and as soon as I had shlepped the 100 Lb. welder to UPS and sent the sell a shipment confirmation they shipped me a new one. I have not welded anything with it. Word to the wise. If you have to move the box by yourself, open it first. The welder does not weigh that much, its the box of accessories that puts the weight of the box over a single person's lift capabilities.

Excellent Tig welder.

Easy to set up and start using right away.

Green is just as good as blue or red.

Great machine, much more than I need for my shop at home. But the features are unbeatable. Only complaints are the hard wear for handles and the torch setups it comes with. Bit both easy fixes.

Perfect for me.

I spent a lot of time researching welders as we use commercial welders at work and they are too far out of my price range not to mention too much for what I needed. I found that for the money this was far more welder than I expected and so far is the best you can get for half the price of the major name brands. I have been running it any time I have a chance and it is been a pleasure. I would definitely recommend this welder to anyone wanting to get into tig welding. This welder will also run 6010 which many of its smaller siblings won’t. Definitely worth the money!

Good Purchase

Solid TIG welder. Smooth arc. I never run it above 175 AMPS for mild steel no matter what the thickness. The foot pedal is great. This machine compares well to the Miller Dynasty 280. I splurged and got the water cooler with it.
