I purchased this welder from Factory Pure as a refurbished product and when it arrived it looked like new and everything worked perfect
Packaging was in great condition upon arrival. Have not tried unit as I have not gotten back home as of review.
Was hesitant buying a refurbished unit but knowing it was refurbished by Hobart made the decision easier. Plus saved $300. Not bad. Factory Pure shipped fast and great communication. Got the Tig in great condition with all accessories as you would if new. Spent 5hrs tig welding steel and aluminum and this machine performed awesome. I would recommend the Hobart EZ Tig 165i to anyone welding 3/16 or less aluminum or steel.
