Small comfortable light good so far

I've used the Promax 500 a few times now after I upgraded from my old Uni-Mig helmet and the difference is chalk and cheese. It is Fantastic!
Following a test comparison between this mask and a competitors mask in the shop, i settled on the Promax as it was simply a solid performer for the price that i couldn't beat!
I'm really impressed with how clear it is! It has an excellent lens that is very clear and large; and with its true colour technology, i get full view of the job and have no eye strain. I also love the option of being able to add a magnification lens.
The harness is simple and comfortable on the head, with way more adjustability than I was expecting. I like being able to adjust the stop angle of the mask when lowered, but also the ability to adjust how close or far the mask sits from the eyes (fore and aft on the harness). Little things like that make all the difference and I had no trouble dialling in a perfect fit!
The shell is solid with a nice gloss finish.
Overall, I wanted a reliable helmet with a really clear lens that offered great value for money. I can honestly say that this mask has all the things i wanted in a high quality helmet and at a fantastic price, with none of the electronic gadgets that could be prone to breaking (that I probably would never use anyway!).
So far I can't fault it!

Stephanie - VIC
absolutely love it and haven’t even used it yet!! thank you :)

Graham - QLD
Love the large lens.

Simon - QLD
Sleek design, love the black! The big window allows a big field of vision, not so claustrophobic. Great definition, much easier to weld. Cheers.

Gordon - TAS
Excellent. Good viewing space. Comfortable to wear.

Steve - VIC
Awesome Helmel makes life so much easier love it.

Chris - SA
Nice and light, fits well, and I love the larger view, heaps better than my old one!

William - QLD
have had several of these in the 350 model and found them good value for money just wanted the bigger viewing window this time.

John - QLD
I've only just opened the box, but it looks very snazzy. More importantly, what caused me to purchase this helmet was its auto-darkening features and the large viewing area. My general rule in life is to always purchase good-quality products and I believe this helmet is no exception to that rule.
Regards John

Geoff - TAS
very good great for wearing glasses when welding

Steve - SA
they are really comfortable and the wide screen is perfect for seeing a lot more of the work surface brilliant helmets

Mark - NT
Best helmet I've purchased so far, fits tight to my face allowing me to get close to work piece and into tight areas, screen is nice and big so I can see more around the area I'm welding without having to move my head with a big clumsy helmet. Head adjustment rig is maxed out and a tiny bit tight on my head BUT having only 4 mounting points means it's solid to my head and doesn't move around and self adjust like other over complicated 8 point adjusters, where as this helmet is straight up (stays there) and straight down to the height you adjust it to for infront of your face, time is saved by not having to keep re-adjust your helmet every time you raise or lower it to see your work.
I have purchased 6 including this 1 since the beginning of this year and I think I've found a winner!

Ashley - VIC
I can see!! no really I CAN SEE. I have tried three helmet and lost money.
Now I can recommend this product to all my friends.
I wear a very strong prescription pair of glasses with bifocals. I'm 52 and for the first time in my life I am able to see through a the welding helmet lens.
Thank-you for a great product that gives me my welding sight.

Dave - QLD
Hi im Dave,this Promax 500 is replacing a very old speeglas apc-v which has done well and still works however I felt I was in need of a larger viewing area and the Promax 500 certainly has plenty of that!so far ive found it to be very very clear and the plastics on the shade unit and head shell look and feel to be of good quality,the head band adjusted very easily and almost feels like Ive owned it for a long time,it fits well and isn't heavy,i like it a lot and would compare it to more expensive brands,I didn't just jump in and buy this without looking well online and reading reviews etc on the many welding helmets out there.

Evan - NSW
Great welding helmet i particularly like the magnification lense and head gear.

Anthony - QLD
Works really well and heaps better than the cheap ones I have bought prior. The adjustments makes it custom fit and use more personnel.

Alex - QLD
It's awesome, has a great viewing area so easy to see what your trying to weld together. Awesome battery life and lots of settings to play with.
Love it :)

Lou - VIC

Wayne - QLD
I recently purchased a Promax 500 and it is without a doubt the best helmet I have ever used in this price range. It's clarity and ease of use is simply superb and I do a lot of welding mainly Mig and I have never felt any eye fatigue even after hours and hours of continual use. I would have no hesitation in recommending this fantastic product to anyone.

Dragan - VIC
Awesome helmet. Such clear vision when welding. Easy to.handle.and operate!

Garry - VIC
I have used and we use a lot of different welding helmets in our workshop and I have been impressed with this helmet and its fast darkening response and switching speed. After the initial 2 days of welding so far I have found there to be no eye strain at all especially using Tig on Stainless Steel welding. I will certainly consider these helmets in the future as we routinely go through them due to wear and tear but most impressed.

Robert - QLD

tig welder - VIC
Impressed with the response and performance of the helmet used pretty well all the name brands of helmets over the years this is as good as the best and better than most will buy again.

Jacob - NT
The helmet is brilliant, love it

It's great, my old helmet was a push button start and couldn't adjust the shade so this has been a huge upgrade

I absolutely love my "Promax 500" welding helmet, so much better in every way than my old one. I soldiered on with my old helmet not realizing just how good these new helmets are. If your fighting with an older helmet I can't recommend the "Promax 500" highly enough.

Thomas - VIC
Nothing all's good..the price is right and the welding helmet good quality and does the job beautifully...thanks

Grant - QLD

Sam - WA
Nice design and very lightweight helmet , it is comfortable to wear nearly all day for welding stainless steel.The helmet works fantastic and the price is great recommended.

Graham - QLD
When inspecting your helmets for purchase, I noticed that the Promax 350 had a handy booklet on all your products. The Promax 500 I purchased did not have one. It would be handy to have for the shed, where I do not have internet service. Nothing major. On a good note, Your Helmet, looks, feels and works great. Cheers.

Mike - SA
Bought premax 500 helmet, great piece of kit, light, adjustable and a fantastic large screen. Also a great price for the high quality and spec. I would certainly recommend this helmet.

Kain - SA
great looking helmet. really comfortable and light to wear/use. good quality.
thanks guys keep up the good products

Jed - QLD
I started off with a Weldclass Promax300 helmet and recently upgraded to a Promax 500 and must say i am very impressed with the extra viewing area and colour vision in the Promax 500. I would however like to see a more robust and durable adjustment system on the side on the helmet as the plastic threads did not last long on my Promax 300 and to my suprise the same system is being used on the 500.
All in all a great product at an exceptional price and i look forward to seeing new products from Weldclass for my next upgrade or purchase.

Rizalito - NT
Such a nice welding helmet, light and very comportable....easy to use...

Greg - QLD
Received a Promax 500 for a birthday present and have found it very comfortable with a good big Lens.

Adriana - VIC
hi there
As a retired old school welder I still use my welder nearly every day with my old basic helmet, after I purchased the Promax 500 I realize how much more viewing space and more clarity I am experiencing.
with this I like to thank you very much for your product and put back the fun and satisfaction in my welding skills.

Phillip - SA
This is the best helmet I have used although it would be nice to have the grind/weld switch on the outside of the helmet for easy access.

Steven - QLD
The promax 500 just has to be the best value welding helmet in its class. To get all the features and comfort elsewhere you have to spend upwards of $400.00, and then most of the cash goes on a brand name. I'd rather just buy a great product!

Dennis - NSW
Absolutely brilliant helmet!

Tony - QLD
Just bought a promax 500 hands down the best helmet I have ever used and at a very affordable price well done weld class.

Scott Greenslade
This helmet is my first ever welding helmet. The screen size is unreal for the price I paid versus some of the other helmets for double the cost. Excellent quality too! Very impressed with it thank you. Regards Scott
