Don't Spend More than You Have To
Paying for a more expensive welder likely means paying for features that you might not need. Many of the higher-end machines we offer are more expensive because they have features that cater to professional welders. But not everyone who welds does it as a primary source of income. Not all welders need to rely on their machines to do their job and earn a living. And not all welders need highly versatile machines that can support various methods of welding. If this sounds like you, you're likely better off not paying for all the features day-in-and-day-out professionals need.
If you're a welding student, more casual welder, or work in a more generalized field, these stick welders are cost-effective and reliable machines that can provide the basics as well as any $1,000+ machine.
