We just got one of these and it welds great for what flux provides! We run .030 Hobart Flux wire and I couldn't ask for a better deal at 140 bucks for the welder and wire.. Provides great penetration! These are available at Tractor Supply and definitely out weld the Harbor Freight 90amp. Ive welded with both..

for a flux core welder of its price it is very very hard to beat, if you want examples of its capabilities look at my builds, anything i weld is welded with this welder, and i am highly satisfied with it

I have to agree with hard to beat. As long as you don't use a 50 foot extension cord to run the shop with the welder. In have welded the head of a sickle mower up and the weld broke with the extension cord, but the next time I just went straight to the pole and the welds have yet to break. I have had the job smart for almost a year and very satisfied.
