Comments: Have not used it yet. Brochure (selection guide, May 2020) says the 180Mst can mig weld aluminium. The user manual says it was not designed or intended for mig aluminium welding!. One goes off the brochure and when I get it home and read the manual and see this...Not really happy.
25-Dec-2020

**Response from Weldclass Team**
Dave, sorry to hear about your experience. The mention in the manual of this machine not being suitable for Aluminium is incorrect. It certainly can be used for MIG welding aluminium. Our manual has been updated, see "Downloads" tab on this web page.

Cameron - NSW
How likely would you be to recommend this product to a friend? (10 = very likely) = 10
Comments: The machine is welding excellently. However, the wire feed seems to be a little bit sticky, but talking with the supplier, we think they tip holder must have an issue that is causing the wire to Birdsnest back in machine between the drive roller and entering the lead. If a new tip holder doesn’t fix the issue, we will have to look a bit harder and take the unit back to the supplier. The first time that wire was fed through, i felt the wire enter the gun, but then stop, and it started to birdsnest. So i am confident it is nothing to do with what i am welding or wirespeeds etc, but fairly certain something isn't quite right with the lead and gun, most likely the tip holder.

Comments: I feel the mig welding component WF-180 MST which is all I have used so far is superior to some other mig welders I have used before, also my neighbour saw me weld and asked if he could take a turn as Jeff has a mig welder of his own. Jeff was super impressed also with the quality & speed of my new welder.

Have only used it a couple of times since purchase; very light (comparatively) and good cable lengths make it very practical (previous MMA welder has too short cables)
New to MIG welding and I feel this machine is the best for both beginner/leaner and advanced.
The online instruction vid re installing a wire spool was good

George Esdaile - NSW
Have set it up and used it in its MIG mode....appears to be a very neat unit at a reasonable price.
I like the digital readout.
The only negative I can find is that the earth lead and "stick" welding electrode leads are pretty light weight. As I already have heavy duty leads this won't be an issue.

Gavin Law - VIC
Well it’s early days and I’m not much of a welder. I’m a builder and I just want a welder so I can do basic welding when I need to instead of driving around to my fabricators shed all the time.
Mainly bought this welder because I like to shop local and K2 said it was a good welder that no one has had any dramas with so good option I reckon.

My son purchased a Boss welder from Bunnings for me and it lasted 4 months and packed it in so it’s going back for warranty and as I need to finish off a new deck in steel I needed a welder ASAP. So after some research I purchased the Weldforce WF-180MST and what a difference it’s an outstanding welder.Cheers Michael

I have only had it a week and used it once to fab up some trestles using Gasless. Ran really smooth and am very happy with it thus far.I bought it from a Hardware shop in Tom Price who try and stock a bit of everything to cover the area. Wouldn't of expected as much knowledge as an Industrial Supplier but staff who were there were enthusiastic about the brand as they had only started stocking your brand and had a demo from you guys recently.

Extremely happy with service and advice from the store where I bought this and description and recommendations made about this Weld force product and its suitability to my requirements for home project use. Especially since I was interested, initially, in a Lincon or Hobart unit. On first use it was easy to set up and did exactly what was described in the instructions. I am not an experienced welder but I'm very happy with this unit as its ease of use will improve my welding skill quite quickly. Cheers Dean.
