    I'm a firm believer in you get what you pay for.
    Miller cost more but the quality will last a lifetime

    I know they cut a deal to sell in Wal-Marts and there price means everything. When I first seen a welding machine in there I was sure the world was coming to the end. I really think Lincoln is shooting themselves in the foot piming the name on a cheap line of products although I can see they sell a lot of units in Lowes/Home Depots. Not sure its a good plan in the long run. Hobat did a good thing when they started to sell at non traditional stores, they didnt create a seperate line. The Hobart?Miller relationship is good, seperate brand names for the different lines. Lincolns plan isnt really good,, You can buy a premium Lincoln and an elcheapo Lincoln. That tactic has been the downfall of a lot of companies. Lexus learned this,,, in reality you are buying a luxury Datsun but at least they gave it its own name. VW lost a lot of money trying to sell upscale cars, were not sharp enough to give it a new name,,, No one was going to buy a VW instead of a Cadillac. Same with Cad, they tried to build Cadillac cheap,,, bad plan. It bankrupt Century boat when they tried to compete with cheap boats.

    If you bought anything CH made after 1995, it didn't last long, probably. I don't know what happened to them, but they certainly turned to sh_t. My 14 year old CH 5HP compressor keeps on pumping, but iy was NOT cheap back then (over $400, as I recall) so I'd expect it to be still running.

    As for welders, I'd stick to a welder manufacturer's product rather than a re-seller of scrapyard wannabies.

    I would bet money their transformers (the heaviest part) are made with aluminum wire.

    I have no particular love of Fords, its like,,, if it has tires or t*ts sooner or later it will piss you off. Here is my take on CH. Air tools are their specialty and they make junk, welders are a sideline from that, go figure.

    I own a CH 70amp stick welder the one on that site for 60.00. Frankly it's built cheap. It has three settings off, 1/16 and 5/64. It can't burn the size rod it says it can. After burning one 1/16 rod on the 5/64 setting the cable gets too hot to touch. The electrode clamp got bumped one time coming out of the box and a chunk of the plastic broke loose. I can hardly get it to do anything thats considered a good weld. I'm not a great welder can melt some metal together with a stick welder pretty desent. I don't know anything about their wire welder but if it's built to the same standards I would stay away from it.
