Exclamation 3 month everlast welders review

To all. I am in the process of typing up a 3 month review of my experiences with Everlast and the purchase of a powerpro256 and a power I-MIG 250p. Stay tuned in the next few days for the review.

Thumbs up Looking forward to it

Looking forward to your review!
I have a Powertig 225LX, had it for about a year now and so far so good, no problems at all. My welding abilities with it is another story but well.... practice, practice, practice. Getting better with every session.
Thanks in advance for posting your review.

Alex

35 year review of my Dialarc 250:

It's blue. It welds great. We'll see how well it holds up.

A guy at work asked me if I might know what could be the problem with an Everlast 160 mig that his Son bought last fall. Evidently it welds, but is stuck on the lowest settings, and it does not respond to any changes in the controls. He said he told his boy that the package it came in looks more durable than the contents...........durable Chinese packaging appears to be quite expensive. My Trailblazer 302 came in a very sturdy box, and the machine still works great.

Mabey the first two posters can shed some light on the problem. The best thing they could do now is just come clean and admit that they are factory reps, or rep.

42 year review on my Airco PA-3-A 300 amp pulse machine, its Airco orange, runs on 3 phase power, is a little cranky to get the setting right now and then, but welds alum. wire thru a XR 30 like a dream.

The Neverlast spammers should be banned immediately. What kind of idiots do they think make up this forum anyway. They should never be allowed to make their second post.....

By the way, I think the name Alex is very closely connected to the Chi-Com brand name in question on one or more of the welding forums. Not sure it is the same Alex though.
