Description: If you are considering a MIG welder then the choice is often between a transformer based workshop machine on wheels or a portable inverter. For workshop use a good European made transformer based basic MIG machine with simple switches to control the output power is the sensible choice for many applications. (Commonly referred to as step voltage or transformer type machines). They are generally cost effective, reliable, perform well, have a long life span. Also a good quality basic MIG machine is electrically efficient in design so power consumption is about as low as it can go. Have a look at our single phase & three phase standard MIG range, Oxford MIGMaker, Oxford I-MIG, Oxford S-MIG. These models are really electrically efficient which means we can give you more output power for lower input. There are also many other quality made European & USA made machines you can consider, however we recomend avoiding the low cost imports, despite giving the impression of being made in the EU etc mostly the low cost machines are now made in the Far East, even some a the big names have gear made in Asia, they often weld quite badly & are not built to last. If you need a MIG welder with portability is the number one priority then we suggest consider a quality EU or USA made inverter machine. But beware, as many users know inverter based machines are not particuarly reliable or have a long life, (more on this subject to follow). Our OXFORD MULTI-ARC portable range make a very sensible alternative to the inverter, they offer superior welding performance on MIG & other processes, similar to the best EU or USA inverter but without the reliability issues of an inverter. These are maybe not quite as portable as a small inverter but otherwise are a better choice.
