Vulcan Migmax 140 Welder Review

Vulcan Welder Review

Vulcan is relatively a new name in the world of welders, but it already has a lot of satisfied owners. Recently this brand released a welder which is one of the most advanced units on the market. On our tests, it performed better than most, equivalent welders, so it definitely deserves to be taken into consideration. Here is the full Vulcan Migmax 140 welder review.

Features of the Vulcan Migmax 140 Welder

Lightest in the class

We all know that a welder must be as lightweight as possible, in order to provide maximum practicality. This particular model weighs only 42 pounds and it is known as the lightest in this class and in this price range. This is an impressive advantage that must be mentioned.

Nevertheless, the welder is well-made and extremely durable. It feels solid and all the elements are made of heavy-duty materials. In other words, you will be able to use a welder for a long period of time and without any damages.

Anti-spatter technology

All of you who are looking for their first welder will appreciate the feature known as anti-spatter technology. What it does is eliminates the molten metal flecks and therefore makes the welding much better and simpler at the same time. You will be able to weld like a pro and your welding will be improved the first time you use this welder. In addition, this is one of the first welders with this system in the class.

Industrial grade aluminum drive system

The system in question is basically the best version of the drive technology used to feed the wire to the torch. Most other models have the similar system but made of lower-quality metals. This one has it made of industrial-grade aluminum. It makes it incredibly strong, durable and also makes the entire welder lighter than usual.

The system in question is far from new, but it has been reserved for more expensive welders. Now you can get it in this, affordable welder. It will hold up to 15 feet of wire, which is a decent result as well.

Supports aluminum welding

Thanks to the implementation of the latest technologies, in our Vulcan Migmax 140 welder review we must mention that you can weld aluminum. As a matter of fact, the welder is ready to provide this level of welding straight from the box. Keep in mind that you will need a different wire and a different torch if you are planning to weld aluminum. However, they are an affordable upgrade.

Tool-free design

Here we can see one of the simplest, yet the most important feature of them all. A tool-free design refers to the ability to change wire or adapt the welder to any application without the need to use any tools. It is a new design and it is extremely important for professionals and for all of you who are planning to use this welder every single day.

We should add that all you are going to need in order to use the welder is still included in the package. In order to understand how to change the wire or adapt the welder, please read the user manual.

30-140 amp rating

Welding metals of different thickness is a common task for all welders. In order to be able to meet this requirement, they must have a variable welding power. Basically, you will adjust the amperage of a welder. When decreased, it will use less energy and generate less heat, so it can weld thinner metals.

Vulcan welder has a rating of 30 as the lowest, so it can weld very thin metals. On the other side, we have 140 amp rating, so it can weld metals up to 5 mm in thickness.
