A lot of people ask, What is a Duty Cycle? Especially when they're checking out our welders and plasma cutters. In simple terms, it's how long a machine can operate in a 10-minute period. For example, the duty cycle of our Mig 175 welder is 30% at 135 amps. That means, when it's running at 135 amps, it can operate 3 out of 10 minutes - then it must cool the other 7. That's a good duty cycle for a machine that can handle everything you need it to do on that restoration. And if you don't think 3 minutes is a long time, hold a pencil like you are welding, and run it across your desk for three minutes.
"I purchased two Pro1200SE lifts for my garage back in October 2014 and they are of the utmost TOP QUALITY of any lift I have seen or used and are working outstanding. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this lift to any consumer looking to purchase a QUALITY lift which includes all the accessories and no need to purchase them separately. Clark had answered all of my questions that I had prior to purchasing and add. I ordered my lifts on a Saturday and they were delivered the following Friday! You will need a forklift of some sort to get the lifts out of the truck as they are extremely heavy FYI. Thanks much NH Pro Equipment for the great experience!"

Check out Brandon's chopper, a 2004 Bourget Python on one lift and his 2009 Harley Davidson CVO RoadGlide on the other. He says, "I have been working on some stereo upgrades on the bagger and of course all the routine yearly maintenance on both (tires, oil changes, etc). "
Thanks to Yulonda for purchasing the PRO 1200 Motorcycle Lift for her husband for Christmas. We're glad to hear he's so happy with it (and you!)!
"The lift is working great! My husband loves it. It was exactly as advertised and what we expected. I'm the best wife ever thanks to this awesome Christmas gift! Thank you," Yulonda E. Rector, Arkansas

Eastwood's Mig 250 Welder is powerful, easy to use, and - it won't break the bank. Featuring inverter technology, and completely portable, it weighs 1/2 as much as similar welders (and costs 1/2 as much, too). Though lightweight, it still manages to delivers all the power you will need to weld steel up to a 1/2" thick and aluminum up to 1/4" thick, with a 60% duty cycle at its full 250 amp setting. Plus, with the efficiency of the inverter and the ability to run on 120v or 240v, you can easily take it to the race track or job site and run it off a generator. It is also completely adjustable, re: both voltage and wire feed speed settings, is capable of accepting both 4" & 8" diameter spools and feed steel, stainless or flux core wire from .023” to .045”. Optional spool gun also available. Features 120 or 240 volt powered Infinitely adjustable 30-250 amp welding range 60% duty cycle at 250 amp setting Inverter technology Uses 4" or 8" wire spool Optional spool gun for aluminum wire Torch cable length: 10 feet Ground cable length: 10 feet Warranty: 3 Year Weighs: 66 lbs Includes 250 amp output MIG gun Ground cable and clamp Gas regulator and hose Instruction manual 120VAC to 240VAC cord 2 lb spool of MIG wire.
"I have to say I am very happy with the purchase. First off, the delivery came much quicker than I anticipated, and unpacking and setting up the lift was pretty easy. I just recently swapped out the swingers, rear shock, front forks and front wheel on my Victory XC and the the lift was invaluable, and performed flawlessly! Thanks again for a great product and the quick turn around on my order!"

Thanks to Tyler of Coon Rapids, Minnesota for the nice comments and photo! "The lift is awesome! Couldn't be happier with it. You guys did an awesome job. Thanks." He added this, along with a photo:
"I'm restoring a 1978 Honda CBX. Inline six cylinder, Twin cam, 24 valves."
Thanks for the great review, Tina - we're glad your husband is enjoying the lift! "I got this for my husband for Christmas and he loves it. He has his bike sitting on it right not, hasn’t had too much time to be working on anything. He thought it was of good quality, color was good ( fits into his “Harley” color scheme). Impressed that I thought to get him something like this. I believe I spoke with Clark when I ordered it, he had all the answers I needed and helped me with the shipping arrangement. Winner winner."
