Buying a MIG welder doesn’t need to be a complicated task. However, in order to make certain that you get the best one for your particular situation, there are a number of things you should check into before you buy.

First, make sure you have a clear idea of what your goal is – what things are you expecting to weld? How often do you need to use it? What sort of environment will it operate in?

Secondly, are there any particular brands of welder that you are hoping to use? What about MIG welder brands you are hoping to avoid? Everyone has different experiences with various makes and models, so it’s important to get that sorted out right away.

Finally, you need to look at the features of the MIG welders you are considering.

What sort of heat settings, output amperage, and wire feed rate do you require? How thick will be the material you’ll be welding? Ensure that the welder you acquire is capable of handling it.

Is there anything peculiar about input voltage or amperage? Open circuit voltage?

What about the cooling mechanism and circuit breaker protection? Do these pose any sort of concern for you?

Lastly, something as basic as the dimensions of the MIG welder should be taken into consideration. Will it physically fit into the area you expect to use it? What about for storage?

Once you have done your homework on which models match your requirements, you are then in a position to do some Internet searching to find the best deal for your MIG welder.

You may want to check out some of the industry standard websites such as:

Miller Welders at millerwelds.com

Lincoln welders at lincolnelectric.com

Hobart Welders at hobartwelders.com

These are several of the thousands of options you will have online when you begin shopping for your next welder in earnest.

Always remember that your level of satisfaction with your welder comes back to how well you have researched your purchase ahead of time.
