A great little MIG/TIG for anybodyReview by Michael-Brian
Being a ex-welder this unit is more than capable of carry out all the uses I have for it at home and my small repair repair shop.
I would use it 50/50 between MIG anf TIG work. (Posted on 8/12/18)
Great machineReview by John
Great welder,easy to use and lightweight. (Posted on 10/08/18)
Great unit. Versatile and powerful.Review by Jambone
I use larger 3 phase welders at work and talked to my local rep about buying a mig for home. He recommended this unit because of it’s 10 amp plug and light weight. He said his brother and law had one and I would not be disappointed, he was right. Easy to use and ballsy enough for any of my projects at home. Highly recommended. (Posted on 4/06/18)
Great product and great serviceReview by Marcus
The 182 is a fantastic machine that makes a novice welder like me look better than I should. (Posted on 22/11/17)
Very Surprised, & Very Very Happy & All you needReview by Rick Verheesen
Terrific little ("BIG") unit.
l have been using this welder regularly for about 8 months now and l am so impressed with this little unit that l need to tell other prospective buyers wanting to buy a good quality Mig welder, "This is it".
l bought this Mig because of the 10 Amp plug, (convenience).
Those of you that already own a bigger Mig with a 15 Amp plug, will alread know exactly where l am coming from because of the hassle it is that you are basically restricted to your own garage because most places do not have 15 Amp power points, whereas everyone has the standard 10 Amps.
After researching what Mig's were available with a 10 Amp plug, l chose the Viper 182 because it is the most powerful 10 Amp Mig on the market and l must admit, l was very very sceptical about how this rig would perform, or if it would perform at all.
"Man was l surprised and impressed".
This little "BIG" Mig, is as good as, if not better than my Big 35 year old 15 Amp Lincoln Electric Mig, and l can fully recommend the Unimig Viper 182 to anyone looking to buy a very good and very capable Mig welder.
The Viper 182 is now my go to Mig for all my many and varied welding jobs, and l can honestly say to you here and now, that l doubt l will ever need to pull out the Big 15 Amp Lincoln again because of how good this little Mig is. (Posted on 22/10/17)
