    Great little welder for the home enthusiast. Can handle most welding tasks that an enthusiast would come across. Now that ESAB has taken oversight of the range, the build quality and reliability has improved markedly.

    This would be better with a dial in voltage instead of a switch to select a better range of amps
    It’s a good welder although it does tend to overheat even on light work
    Not sure if it’s a fault with the machine
    Other than that it has been a good machine and works best with the Cigweld wire
    Other brands have not been as good through this machine
    I would have rated it higher if it didn’t overheat so often and if the voltage was more of a dial in
    Good for anyone at home doing general welding tasks though

    Great welder for a newbie! After a year of use restoring an old card where every panel has required patching or complete panel replacement, it’s been perfect.
    Used about 1.5kg of wire so far of 0.8 fluxcore to weld up 0.8 panels on power setting 1 or 2 with a wire speed of around 5 giving perfect welds. I’ve also welded so thick plates on a setting of 3 which was also easy so there’s more than enough power.
    Only issue I’ve had was the gun itself where the nozzle got stuck the first time I tried to take it off which then broke the wire screw thread. Still worked regardless. When you buy replacement wire, the spoils in the cardboard boxes work out much cheaper than the ones in the plastic packets too.

  4. Matthew Racovalis

    constant wire feed issues from new. nothing in the manual about how to replace the liner. guess it’s not a sevicable unit and suggest buying a unit that is.

  5. Glen Gibson

    Absolute junk. At low speeds, makes a horrible racket and has done from the day I took it out of the box. Got a replacement from where I got it, same problem – probably a bad batch. Guy at the shop said “I have a mate with one and he says it’s normal”….after that Cigweld have ignored me.

    Now I’ve needed a MIG for a project I’m doing and I’ve been reminded just how much I hate it – so I thought it’s time to write a review. Yet, my cheap Chinese TIG never misses a beat – go figure.

    Takes multiple attempts to feed the wire up the hose. Feed motor is noisy and jerky compared to other MIG welders. Anyone I’ve asked says it’s not normal.

    Cigweld, either replace this piece of junk with a properly PROFESSIONALLY tested unit, or I won’t be buying another Cigweld ever again and will be telling others to avoid your brand too.

    i have done a lot of work with my 130.I biult a trolley for it to sit on but was not a good idea,it damaged the electronics inside from the bumps.I was told it looks like it was dropped.i have found it good but it is not a heavy built welder so needs to be handled gently

    Did what I wanted. Purchased it for $330NZD.

    It is a bottom of the line entry unit. For me, it has done everything I asked of it. Weld 1.6mm box up to 4mm flat bar. I found the 4mm a lot easier to work with than the thinner stuff. I’ve blown holes in the 1.6mm stuff a fair bit. Mate who is a welder had a go and he showed me a few tricks – no more blowouts.

    The unit is not a professional unit and the price is indicative of that. Its well good enough to Hot Glue Metal for shelving, trailers, fencing etc. It would never handle welding I beams for canter lever pergola roofing.

    I have since rigged up my CO2 gas bottle that I use for my home brew kegs and its now working a proper treat.

    I’ve had no problem with wire speed. The motor is noisy but it doesn’t affect my work. Haven’t taken a circuit breaker out yet but the circuit my welder is on is not shared with anything else at the same time.

    The mask is pretty ordinary as you’d expect from an entry unit. I purchases an auto darkening mask online for $28. Same electronics as a few of the more common masks – price difference is in the cradle that your noggin goes in. Does the job though.

    It does exactly what a $330 welder should do. If you want more, spend more. I dropped 1 star for the cheap mask.
