    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.

  2. Richie Ray

    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

  7. Russell

    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.

    I’ve had a Bossweld stick welder for about 2 years. I build Go karts and Dune buggy from scratch and after 2 years the stick welder is no longer doing it for me. This product is great, easy to use, and simple to set up especially with the instructional DVD.

    As a retiree of the agriculture business, I still enjoy helping out our sons on the farm with small repair jobs whenever I can. This smaller welder will be practical and enable me to carry out these jobs with great job satisfaction.

    What i really like about the cigweld 135 mig is the thing that you can do gasless welding on it and so i dont have to buy expensive gas bottles, and aslo the size is pretty portable. I can also do a pretty decent bead on it.

    I used to work for ESAB back in the 80’s as a technical sales rep at first then progressing to the automation manager. I have always thought their products some of the finest made and now with the ownership of cigweld this little MIG looks to be ideal for me.

    Great compact machine and it has the ability to do small to medium jobs. Being a boilermaker by trade, over the years I have always trusted CIG products and have no doubt that this particular machine will not let me down.

    I bought it because I trust the brand. I have tried generic products and found them wanting. I bought it because of the price, at the upper end of my budget but worth the stretch. I bought it because there were some online reviews from tradesmen who valued it highly.

    I have not used the welder yet as I only purchased it today. But after working in the construction industry for over fifty years, I came across many CIGWELD products and never heard any complaints. That is what swayed me to purchase my new welder for my vintage car renovation.

    Had to exchange the first one as not feeding out of nozzle. Took back for troubleshooting where purchased and agreed. Swapped for new one and worked first try. Happy now, just need to buy your trolley now as quite heavy on my sparky muppet arms. Cheers.

    CIGWELD has a good name and is good value for money. I’ve tried cheaper brands and found them to be unreliable and low quality. The 135 MIG can do any welding job I need, and easy to use for a hobby welder like me.
