Default Cheap inverter stick welder

I'm looking into buying a cheap inverter stick welder to run off my generator . This will not be used constantly it's main purpose will be for mobile welding on equipment .anyone have experience with these or suggest a certain brand or model ? I'm thinking I need a 200 amp or better considering thickness of metal used on equipment . Any help would be greatly appreciated

The spec page says that the product weight is 16 1/2 pounds but the shipping weight is only 13 1/2 pounds. Hmmmm. Hazard Fraught needs a proof reader or fact checker or both.

Some people like some Klutch welders. Not sure if this model is one of them. Duty cycle at 200A is only 15%. Not sure if it is suitable for E6010. At present, it's $257 delivered:

https://www.northerntool.com/shop/to...0690_200680690

Klutch® ST200iDV 15–200 Amp Dual Voltage Inverter-Powered Arc welder with TIG function

3 year warranty and you can get another 1 year replacement warranty for $35.

Welcome to the Site.

Would that be peak power?

A quick check looks like a 225A Inverter welder may need 9,000 watts minimum.
