“I asked my wife to get this for me for Christmas last year. I just got a chance to use it. It works perfectly! The adjustments to speed and sensitivity are perfect. As a former professional welder I was amazed that something so low cost could work so good. The suspension is a bit less than desired, but for the money? This is a GREAT DEAL. So, 5 stars is valid. Thanks Harbor Freight for another great deal on a tool.” – by gliverson from Boise, ID

I’m glad I bought it and I’m sure I will get plenty of use out of it AND the welder. Thanks HF once again for making tools affordable for the do-it-yourselfer!!” – by Dewart Lake Tackle Company from Syracuse, IN

Worked great, then the batteries died but I got my money’s worth out of it. Hope this one lasts that long!” – by Dom the excavator from Pensacola, FL
