Lincoln gas powered welders

Does anyone own or has used the Lincoln Electric Portable 125 amp Welder/5500 Watt Generator Model K1429-8, If so what do you think of it? I know it is only 125 amps of welding power but I need to do some fence work as in corner post's etc. Also is the generator o.k.? Thanks

Great little welder! The thing is it is just that, a little welder but if that is all you need it is a fine outfit and parts and service, if you ever need it, is easy to find. If you are thinking about buying a new one, have you checked out the Lincoln Ranger series? Not a great lot more expensive but a lot more power with 225 welding amps and 8500 watts of generator power(120 volt and 220 volt). OK you asked about the 125 amp

I ran a price check and the price of the little one is 2/3 the price of the larger unit..I think I would hold out for the larger unit if possible..much more use for the larger unit..

Or one could shop weld the pieces for field installation...

I have a Ranger 8 with 20 HP Kholer on my field service truck and it is one fine outfit! The MIG function when hooked to a wire feeder(LN 25) is as good as any shop unit I have ever tried and with scratch start TIG equipment it works just as good. I have had this welder for 6 years now and it is used about every day with zero problems so far. I know of one guy who runs a well drilling rig and he uses the little 125 every day and swears by it. Which ever rig you chose I think you will be happy with it.

Home depot has the Lincoln 125 amp gas driven welder $1149.00, about $350.00 cheaper than Lincolns suggested price on their web site. I do have ARC, MIG, TIG and O/A in the shop and could weld the pieces for field install but some of the fencing is in ground now and need some repairs. I was thinking of convenience in the field. I really don't think I need a larger welder for what I am wanting this for.
