Hey Forum,:icon_cool::lifting:

I am looking to make some modifications to my ATV so do any of you know any good welding machines by good welding companies....i am looking to cut some metal and hopefully weld some also. I need a good price though because most of them are really expensive.:happy:

Hobart or Miller would be my top choice. I would prefer one that ran on 220 but thats just my preference, I do a lot of welding. Billy would be a good one to help with this question, he does a lot of fab work.

Harbor freight has pretty good prices on them not sure who actually makes them. I have an old Lincoln stick welder and it can be a pain to use for a novice like myself but it does get the job done.

Many, many moons ago I bought Lincoln's best 110 mig, I think it's an SP175. While it doesn't recommend it, I've welded 3/16 steel to 3/8 steel on my hot rod chassis and never had a problem (i.e. break or crack). I use Ar/CO2 gas with it, and upgraded the wire and sheath right after I bought it to handle bigger wire (I think it's .030). It probably helps I learned to weld on an AC/DC 220 buzz box. I sold the buzz box!
