Now before I bought this unit I spent lots of time researching and reading reviews and I even called the nice guys at IOC. The guy I talked to was very nice and knowledgeable and answered every question I had. He told me how unit would come on the pallet and what to expect when it got here. One thing I did read in the reviews was how this unit stacked up to other less expensive units such as harbor freight. Really? There is no comparison! That's like comparing a Prius to a Mercedes. If your going to compare, at least make it a even playing field. You want junk then go to harbor freight and waste your money on a cheap unit, this is a solid, well built unit with lots of nice features.
Some guys won't look at it cause it's not blue or red and that's their choice, but they don't know what they are missing out on. This is not a perfect unit (it does not weld aluminium in tig), but it's not cheap. It has a lot going for it, for the guy at home or in a small shop that would like a good mig machine with the option to learn and have stick when you need it. then this is for you. Whenever you combine things into one package your forced to give a little to get more.
Over all, I have to say this is a great upgrade unit or a really great 1st unit. Also I read reviews about how the cart was over priced and how you can buy cheaper carts and be just as well off. But if you buy it with the cart like I did you will not be sorry! This cart is built like a damn tank! The cart itself can hold 500#! And it has nice sturdy rear wheels and low deck to get the bottle on so bottle change is a snap. You can't go wrong with this setup for this price. Yes, like anything you could pick it apart and find things to complain about but I don't know why you would waste your time, just weld with it and have a good time making whatever it is you do. My only complaint with whole deal is that it only comes with 1 little organizer tray and it has slots for 2 and I cant seem to find one online, no big deal but Thats all I got to complain about! If your waiting to pull the trigger on this unit DONT! Just get it and you'll be happy! Very nice overall unit.
