Lotos MIG 175 review

Lotos MIG 175 welder is a welding machine that any serious entrepreneur would want to have in their garage. While working with my welding machine that I used to think was the best in the market, I came across the Lotos MIG 175 in a friend’s garage. This solid machine had some really nice and superb weld penetration together with a wire feed motor system of functionality. Together with other unique features that made me to order one unit for my garage, I have never regretted having made the decision of buying this welder.

The Lotos MIG 175 welder has the following features which include;

  • 30% duty cycle at 135A and 20% duty cycle at 175A
  • It also features an individual together with an infinite Volts together with wire speed systems of adjustment
  • MIG welding stainless steel, aluminum and other materials.
  • The product measures 18 x 10.5 x 12.5 inches and weighs 85 pounds
  • The steel gas supply is: clean, dry and oil free 25% carbon dioxide and 75% Argon.

Previously, some cheap was not easy for me to weld aluminum products and other light metals such as a bicycle frame. The Lotos MIG 175 with its versatility has now enabled me to be able to weld any given type of metal. All the kinds of metals can now be welded in my garage. By the use of a spool gun, you will be able to weld aluminum, something that’s not possible with most of the other cheap welders.

Ranging from a bike, a vehicles body, the chassis of a truck, the heavy metals from the farm machineries and others. Since I bought this product, apparently I have been able to make more profits. 🙂 smile.!

Analysis

With my experience with the Lotus MIG 175 welder, I give it a rating of 4.5-star not only from its functionality but starting from the purchase. The product comes in a package that includes an MIG welding wire, a welding protection mask, an argon regulator, an argon horse, a ground clamp and cable, an MIG spool gun and an MIG torch. I have been in the welding business and for a long time now have bought several welders. Very few of them will come with such a number of side products in the package. There is not a single disadvantage that I have singled out in relation to the functioning of this machine

Conclusion

It is very normal that when a new product comes in to the market, people tend to fear to try them. It is also a common saying that “if the deal is too sweet, think twice. For the Lotos MIG 175 welder, do not think twice. Do not also fear being the first one in your town to have this new product in the market. You will never ever regret having spent your money in it. For the doubting Thomas, I have already tried using the welder and the results are good. You can as well give it a try. After all, you won’t be the first one to go for it.
