LONGEVITY Stickweld 140 140AMP Dual Voltage Protable Stick Welder
Longevity has incompetent service
- Pros: lead length. LCD display. 120/220v,
- Cons: Longevity Customer service
Definitely does not run 6011 (details below)
- Other Thoughts: I'll say right up front that I have had problems with Longevity's sales and customer service. They are either incompetent or lie.
Build quality seems decent. knob feels good. Nice LED display. good lead length. fans run constantly. Stinger is neither here nor there.
When I bought this, I had read varying information about how it handles 6011 and I couldn't find standard information about it's duty cycle on their website. So I did the intelligent thing and asked their sales rep questions. One of them was does it handle 6011. He said yes. Had he said no I wouldn't have bought the thing. Well it definitely doesn't run 6011. I ran some 3/32 rods and it can't maintain a stable arc even at 100amps. So I was either lied to or their sales rep doesn't know the difference between 6011 and 6013.
When I bought it they said it would ship in a week. It took them over a month to ship me the unit, and then it was the wrong welder. After all that got sorted out, I finally got to test the Stickweld 140. After all that I called them up and asked for a refund. They still jacked me for 15% restocking fee.
I don't trust Longevity, and I wouldn't do business with them in the future based solely on their customer service.
