    Looks industrial. What ga. wire does it have? Might be way overboard for car work. Heck of a deal though.

    I have that same welder! ESAB is to Europe, like Hobart, Lincoln, or Miller is to the US. That machine came out in the early 80's, and trust me it weighs more like 130lbs.

    I'm running 33lb .030 wire spool on mine, it's a little heavy for auto sheet metal, suggest a .025 or smaller.

    Been a few months since you picked up your welder, how do you like it? Really interested in feedback as the same model is for sale local to me and I'm considering it. Had to replace any parts on it? Costs? Thanks.
