Thread: Weld.Com Review Of New Everlast Lightning MTS275 w/ AC/DC TIG

  1. Default Weld.Com Review Of New Everlast Lightning MTS275 w/ AC/DC TIG

    Yeah,

    I just noticed this YouTube video demo.

    And that new LCD screen looks very good.

    ROCK ON, Everlast!

    Saw the review as well, and I'm glad to see Everlast keeps innovating their product line... and the gadget geek in me is cursing that I didn't know about the 275 before I bought the 252 last month! Aaaagh! Oh well, I'm still a happy camper.

    Nah,

    That 252Sti seems to have all of the same functionality and features of the 275, just without the LCD screen.

    And the 252 is somewhat more compact, and less costly, too.

    All three of the new Everlast AC/DC "all-in-one" units are brilliant, and a tremendous value, in my opinion.

    There are a few nice surprises in the 275 though. Added features not on the 252, that added value and capability to the machine.

    I pre-ordered mine about a month ago. They are suppose to be shipping by the end of December. Is there any way to get a users handbook of the MTS 275 so I can familiarize myself with the menu system and the machine?

    Not yet. We are still finalizing the programming.

    OK,

    Here's a follow-up video by Weld.com on the Stick capability of the new Lightning 275.

    Weld.com has been using the heck out the Lightning 275 on many of their videos and projects.

    They'll undoubtedly get around to the MIG demo part before long, I'm guessing.

    Will the MTS275 have both AC and DC stick welding?

    No. AC stick welding is of limited value. It's history comes from transformer machines which were AC before they were DC. Sometimes people point to "arc blow" for reason not wanting DC. Arc blow is very rare and it can be combated several different ways in DC.

    Yeah,

    But one of the under-appreciated benefits of AC Stick welding is all those free hot showers!

    Ha, ha, ha...

    Soon, very soon. Almost here, but with the holidays, we can't put an exact date. Should be here by Christmas.

    Looks like my Lightning 275 has been shipped now and I should receive it on 1/8/2020.

    Nice!

    You will soon have a welding unit that cannot be compared to any other on the planet, at that amperage and feature-set.

    And I'm liking the idea of that new, big LCD moreso, somehow. Maybe we'll see it on the EXT line someday.

    Since Everlast has started shipping the Lightning MTS 275 and my order has been shipped it would be nice to be able to download the pdf manual and get a head start on learning the Lightning 275.

    Yeah,

    You're undoubtedly chomping at the proverbial bit.

    There'll undoubtedly be a hard copy in the box.

    And, who knows, maybe Mark is already working on a newly revised/updated PDF manual that will show up any day.

    Either way, it'll be a fun time, if you let be so.

    Chomping at the bit is an understatement. It's like a kid waiting for Christmas to open his presents!!

    Yeah,

    It's not too uncommon for some people to build up anxiety when ordering a new machine that isn't an off-the-shelf proposition.

    I mean, this 275MTS really has no peers in its class, and you'll be somewhat of a first-on-the-block, or even the planet to have one.

    So, I'd probably allow myself to have some happy anxiety too, if I were in your position.

    That's machine will undoubtedly prove to be a brilliant model. And, again, I really like how there are added waveforms (like Triangle) included in the AC TIG capacity, which make it an advanced-featured TIG unit in my opinion, and not just a digital full-featured TIG unit and MIG unit.

    Guys,
    I've worked a couple of 22 hour days and quite a few 12 hour ones working on this manual. It is almost done.
    Just a few samples here. Looks like the completely new manual will be between 70 to 85 pages. But I am trying to condense the information onto less pages, and get rid of information that isn't 100% necessary.
