      PowerTIG 255EXT

      If you are looking to take your shop or business to the next level in TIG welding capability, the digital inverter-based PowerTIG 255EXT delivers exceptional power and performance at a budget friendly price. In fact, the PowerTIG 255EXT not only has a long list of competitive features but also unique features that distinguishes it from the competition. You'll find surprisingly competitive performance when comparing feature to feature against the competition such as memory, pulse and wave forms thanks to the microprocessor from Infineon. When you compare the additional features and the price advantage the welder offers such as the advanced pulse for aluminum welding and advanced stick welding controls such as hot start intensity and time adjustments, the PowerTIG 255EXT really stands on it's on. Advanced pulse is a new feature introduced on the digital PowerTIG units which improves top and low end performance on Aluminum. It can be set up to increase penetration on thick aluminum up to 25% over what is traditionally accepted as the maximum limit for the maximum output of the welder. 2 "Easy Start Up" modes also add to the unit’s versatility while keeping operation simple. The unit also excels as a stick welder featuring hot start time, hot start intensity and arc force control adjustments, making it a perfect welder for E6010 or E7018 welding. Everything on the AC/DC pulse TIG welder has been carefully designed for maximum life and reparability down the road.

      This welder provided the perfect balance of powerful, capable machine with cost including necessary accessories like air cooled torch, water cooled torch, and pedal. While I don't make my living as a welder, I greatly appreciated the quality of this product after moving up from another imported brand. What impressed me most though was that when I did have an issue within two months of buying the welder, Everlast was extremely responsive and fast in providing a replacement unit including Oleg (CEO) quickly checking in and managing the situation. My first unit, manufactured in 2015 but delivered in July 2016, had an issue on Labor Day Weekend after switching from TIG to Stick and back. Tech support followed up on Tuesday morning on my Monday evening request for support and I had a replacement unit on Friday. The new unit was manufactured in July 2016 and hopefully has benefit from some rounds of fixes. I will update this review or write a new one if I have any more issues. Based on my experience so far even including the warranty repair, I recommend this welder.
