MIG Welders For Sale

There are a lot of reasons why people choose to buy a MIG welder over a TIG, a few of the reasons which we’ll outline in this short post. Additionally, you can scroll down in order to see all the various MIG welders we have for sale on this site.

The speed of the welds that you’re able to accomplish with this specific type of machine is perhaps the biggest reason for its popularity, although by far the only reason. GMAW, or MIG welding is a technique using a continuously fed wire to create versatile welds, useful for a range of different types of metals. This process also has the advantage of being able to be operated either semi or fully automatic without the potential for entrapped slag made possible from other types of welding processes.

Another advantage? A gas shield will limit the amount of alloy elements, and welds can be cleaned very fast afterwards. Equipped with the necessary supplies, you’ll be able to do quality work in a timely manner, with very few downsides to this technique.

What to look for

While there are many reasons to buy a MIG welder, there are also reasons not to, including things you should be looking for when you’re making the jump. For instance, if you’re doing a lot of jobs that require portability, you may be better off looking in this section instead.

  1. Make sure to check out what type of wire the welder is compatible with.

Some of the options on the market are limited to the use of flux core. Are you fine with that limitation? Great – otherwise you may want to keep looking.

2. The duty cycle

If you are planning on using the machine extensively and for longer periods of time, it’s important to note the duty cycle of the machine you’re getting, the same way you would if you were buying a plasma cutter.

3. Voltage

If you don’t have a 220 volt outlet, and that is the welder you end up purchasing, you need to know that you will have to have one installed in order to be able to use the welder. To avoid that, some people choose to go with the 110 volt option instead.

While those aren’t all the things you will need to look for, they’re a good place to start at the very least.

Manufacturers

While there are many different manufacturers, some of the most prominent and popular ones include Everlast, Miller Welds, Lincoln, and more.

Some of the specific models include HTP Pro Pulse 200, Miller Millermatic 140, Millermatic 211, Eastwood MIG 175, Vulcan Omnipro 220 and more.

Miller Welders

Miller, like Lincoln, is one of those companies where you know you will be able to rely on the welder you get from them.

No matter if you’re looking for a DIY or hobby welder, using aluminum or mild steel for your creations, this Millermatic 211 is a great choice to consider.

Portable Welders

As with plasma cutters, there are certain things that can make a welder more or less portable, and depending on your needs, portability may not even be the best option for you to start looking for.

It’s better that you find the right welder and that it may weigh slightly more than that you get the wrong one simply to ti find out that you’re switching it out 6 months from now.

Lincoln and Miller are just some of the reputable companies that also have very portable machines to get that you know will last you a very long time.

Things to consider

Before we move on, it’s important to go over some of the initial considerations you should be keeping in the back of your mind, even if you’re convinced that one of the portable welders we have for sale on this page is right for you.

The first and most important thing you will need to know is if you’re choosing a MIG or TIG welder, but the scope of that is beyond the limited article that we’re including here. If you’re a beginner, most people do choose a MIG, though. If you are planning on putting a lot more energy into becoming a good welder, TIG will be the way to go.

As far as portability goes, it is obviously up to each manufacturer to decide whether they believe that their specific welding equipment is portable – on our site we have our own way of classifying the different machines, that include their weight and dimensions. If you have very specific requests for those two things, make sure to check the specs of each welder before buying one. Does the welder need to fit into a specific space on your truck, then measure it to know that it actually will.

What voltage will you be hooking it up to? Are you going to be using it at your shop where you have a 220v outlet installed or will it be at home where you would need to have a specific outlet installed for it? TIG welders and more powerful machines will usually run on 220v.

Each welder will come with a different variety of extras and attachments and the ones you will want to look for include. Spools of wire, foot pedals and contact tips are the extras that are actually wort something as you would otherwise be buying these things regardless, but certain extras simply aren’t worth much because you would need to buy a better alternative anyway.

TIG Welders For Sale

Many of the same companies that manufacture plasma cutters also have various high quality TIG welders that we have listed for sale on this page specifically.

Some of the most popular manufacturers include Everlast, Miller, AHP, Eastwood, Lincoln, ESAB and Hobart. The right machine for you will depend on the type of job you’re hoping to use it for, whether it is aluminum welding or some other job, as well as whether you’re a hobbyist or someone who requires an entirely different piece of equipment.

Do you specifically want a machine that offers AC/DC, then be sure to check the corresponding boxes and filters.

According to search volume, these are some of the most popular TIG welders on the market, although they may not be what best serves your purpose: Eastwood TIG 200, Lincoln Square Wave 200, Miller Dynasty 200, Miller Dynasty 200 DX, Primeweld Tig 225, Lincoln TIG 225 AC/DC.

The welding machine that is right for you depends on both your budget and what it is you’re trying to accomplish with it.

When you’re considering buying a TIG welder there are a bunch of different factors we suggest you think about, as you may otherwise end up with a machine that does not achieve what you were hoping for:

  • Pulsed welding

Gone are the days when you would only be able to expect 20 pulses per second as newer machines can offer upwards of 5,000 pulses during the same amount of time giving you a much better ability to control the applied heat, ensuring better welds that are significantly stronger, as well as a cleaner weld that takes less time to clean.

  • Portability

Some plasma cutters are more or less portable, and the same applies to TIG welders. A machine weighing 100 pounds will surely be more of a beast to move than one that weighs half that amount.

  • A quality foot pedal

You will often end up having to use the machine in situations where both of your hands will be busy, why having a good foot pedal is important to avoid large puddles.

Best Welders for Beginners — Top Picks & Reviews

Like most disciplines, welding requires you to master the basics first if you want to be good at it. Sadly, many beginners struggle to pull this off just because they bought the wrong welding tool. 

If you want your welding education to be off to a great start, you need a welding tool that is built for the beginner in mind. You’d want to avoid picking up welding tools that make the basics complicated. 

Many welders in the market can serve as a good gateway to the craft or discipline of welding. To help you find the welder that will set you on the right path, we’re giving you a list of our top picks and reviews.

Types of Welding Methods

But before we get there, ask yourself this question: What kind of welder do I need?

First off, it bears noting that there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to welding. Different jobs require different welding processes. There are many welding methods, the most common of which being MIG welding, Flux-cored Arc Welding, TIG welding, and stick welding. To help you determine which welder is the right one for you, a breakdown of the different welding processes is in order. 

MIG Welding

MIG welding, otherwise known as Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW), uses a wire electrode that is fed through a spooling gun at a pre-set speed. This process creates the arc that melts the wire and merges it with the base, which facilitates the production of strong, refined, and clean welds. 

Flux-cored Arc Welding 

Flux-cored arc welding (FCAW) facilitates the wire feeding process by using a flux-cored wire that protects the arc from contamination. It’s this protection that makes this the preferred welding method outdoors.

TIG Welding

TIG welding—also called Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW)—produces welds by using a non-consumable tungsten electrode. To protect the weld material from contamination, this welding process uses a shielding gas and a filler metal. While TIG welding is more difficult to learn, it’s the method that produces the most durable and precise welds.

Stick Welding

Stick welding uses a “stick” (otherwise known as an arc-welding electrode) that produces an electric current to weld metal pieces. This welding method is recommended for alloys and joints. It’s also the most affordable, making it the most popular welding method for home use.

Without further ado, here are the best welders for beginners.

1. Weldpro 200 Multi-Process Welder

If you’re new to welding, the Weldpro 200 Multi-Process Welder is just the thing to get you on the right track (and it doesn’t hurt that it’s very affordable).

Thanks to the welding machine’s pre-set internal parameters, you don’t have to waste time trying to decide which settings are recommended for certain situations. While it’s still best that you adjust the more important settings (such as the heat settings) manually, not having to worry over other details can go a long way into helping you get things done much faster.

Most beginners struggle with the proper handling and maneuvering of the torch, but this unit does away with all of those by including a button that allows you to switch between manual wire feeding and automatic wire feeding on the fly. Since you don’t need to hold the trigger, you can focus on the torch, allowing you to create higher quality welds.

Plasma Cutter Prices Exposed!

If you’re only now just starting to research plasma cutters, you’re probably wondering how much you should realistically be spending to find the one that best suits both your needs and your budget.

There are, however, a few things that you should be aware of. Yes, you may not need to buy a model from Thermal Dynamics, but it could all end up being both better for you and cheaper in the long run – it all depends on your needs.

There are very valid options on the lower end of the spectrum if you have very limited needs, such as those offered by Lotos – in fact our recommendation here on the site. Got limited needs, then go ahead and check out the LTP5000D that you can get for less than $500.

Thickness of the metal that you’re working with

Plasma cutters have different thickness they’re rated to be able to deal with, whether it is a clean cut or a severed cut. The issue about choosing a machine that is severance rated to be able to deal with the metal thickness you’ll most often be working with is that you will be spending a lot of time cleaning up the cut. It may just be a better idea to choose a better plasma cutter in the first place.

The price might be misleading

While it may be tempting to look at the price of the plasma cutter and say “oh, this is the one I think I need”, you should know that some machines will go through comsumables at a significantly more rapid pace than is the case for other machines.

Choosing a plasma cutter does not need to be hard, but those are just some of the things to keep in mind.

Plasma Cutter Consumables

Consumables for a plasma cutter can be a large part of the ongoing expenses you’re having with your machine, if you choose a cheap machine like the LTP5000D. Where you will see your money going is towards cutting tips and electrodes.

If you haven’t yet bought your plasma cutter, it can be a good idea to not just consider the price of the machine, but also how quickly the model you’re considering will go through the consumables.

It is very likely that you may end up damaging the tip if you’re just starting out and don’t have the technique right yet. Secondly, an electrode that is way past its prime can have an effect on how much work you’re managing to get done as it will significantly slow down your cutting. When you’re wanting to not just make beautiful cuts, but also do so in a timely manner, you will end up having to make sure your consumables are also doing what they’re supposed to.

There are also other consumables to keep in mind if you don’t have a portable plasma cutter but rather a CNC. Some of these, it can even be hard to notice that they have deteriorated over time and they include the nozzle, the swirl ring, the retaining cap and the shield. Make sure that you keep an eye out for these parts so as to get better cuts in the future!

Portable Plasma Cutters For Sale

If you’re always on the move, getting a portable plasma cutter is the right move for you. Having a light-weight, hand-held machine just allows you to get more done than having something massive that is just a pain to deal with.

Since you came to this page specifically looking for a portable option, you may also be interested in checking out our comparison chart. It allows you to easily say “okay, this is how much I want it to weigh at the very most, and these are the dimensions I don’t want it to be bigger than.” That saves you a bunch of trouble if you know that you are either mainly comfortable carrying a certain amount, or if you know that you want your plasma cutter to be fitting in a specific space on your truck, where there is just a limited amount of space.

A lot of people are extremely happy with the Hypertherm Powermax 45, which stands at 36 lbs, but the Powermax 30 is an even lighter option at 21.4 lbs. Then it very much comes down to your personal preferences, or if you have some types of metal, or thicknesses that you know you will be dealing with a lot.

There are also a bunch of both Hobart, Everlast, Thermal Dynamics and Miller Electric models that the pros are using out there. From Miller Electric, you will find that the Spectrum 625 X-TREME is a strong contender at 21 lbs.
