Perfect 5 "Best bang for the buck" for a 300amp/class inverter mig. Inductance control with burnback/wire sharp functions are a bonus. Noisy fan, but that's the only con that I can think of. Very pleased with the machine, (and awesome price/quick shipping!)
5 Even on sale this welder is priced at the top for a Inverter MIG 3 in 1 machines . The Mig function is aimed at the 250 amps at a 40% duty cycle market with adjustable inductance. If you desire the highest quality accessories like the fusion mig gun, thick cables ,high quality stick stinger ,quick change drive wheels ,adjustable wire outlet guide , etcetera ,you will not be disappointed in any of these. It has a good selection of bells and whistles like wire run in speed and burn back adjustment. If you have never tried an inverter MIG ditch your all transformer model because an inverter MIG will run flux core almost as well as solid core and otherwise defies the characteristics of a All Transformer Welder. The welder cabinet is designed to be lite. There is a metal chassis and case with the remainder of plastic. It looks a lot like the Klutch brand by Nothern Tools.I don't really understand the wire reel holder. It seems complicated and I don't see how it can work with 4' rolls. I had problems feeding .023 wire and tech support informed me that a wire liner being too large was the problem. I changed the wire guide outlet to the smaller size and I took care of 99% of the feed rollers slipping. Most welders do not have this problem.They will feed any solid wire through a much bigger liner without problems. The wire guide sleeve is a tight fit on mine and you have to pound it out with a brass punch towards the machine to get it out. So although the 252i is a nice high end machine it is unnecessarily complicated and most DIYer's are not going to appreciate the quality. I personally like the machine and replaced a value priced inverter MIG because of lack of parts/support which ESAB is not lacking in. So for what it is I would buy it again but the parts/support almost doubles the price. I have only used the MIG with .023 wire and I doubt I will have a chance to try out the stick and TIG or flux core processes before time is up to do this review.
