Longevity MIG welder

Anyone have a MIG welder on here? I love to tinker around with stuff and do a few repairs on the side, sometimes weld up some stuff around the house etc. I'm looking into getting one soon that is portable and reliable. I've checked out a couple local shops and decided to go online for better pricing.

I found a couple of companies, but unlike the rest of the companies selling welders, Longevity seems to have a great warranty, and the best all around pricing. Is there anyone here that will vouch for LONGEVITY? I'm almost ready to pull the trigger but would love some feed back on product support.

Here is their website:
Welders, Welding Equipment, Welding Supplies & Welding Machine


Let me know what you guys think. Thanks.

I have a Miller Mig welder that I've owned for over 15 years. It's a 110 volt 130 amp unit that has never let me down and I don't even know how many spools of wire I've put through it but I'd say average 2 12 pound spools a year so that is over 300 lbs of wire I've run through it! Damn!

They are fun to use and super handy, I've even taught my 12 year old daughter to weld on it and believe it or not she can do pretty good.

That said when I bought it I looked around and the quality of the Miller sold me over Lincoln and Hobart. All good units but be sure to do your research and look especially at the drive mechanism. I can't really comment on the unit you linked to but I'd want to see it in person and get a demonstration. Again, the quality of the unit should be self evident when you look inside.

Good luck!

Thanks for the info. I was looking to Miller MIG welders and they look like real reliable but the price is a little to high for me. I read reviews on Longevity MIG welders and they have good reviews on their products.
This is the unit i'm looking into:
Migweld 140 140AMP 110v Mig Welder - MIG Welders | Longevity Global Inc
110/220v. Portable and affordable. they gave me a great price for the spool gun as well.
I think i'm going to pull the trigger on that unit.

Great! Give us an online review of your new welder after you get it.
