Lincoln 140 HD Welder Review

Lincoln 140 HD WelderThe Lincoln 140 HD welder is a very popular welder that can be used by novices and experts alike. With that said, as this unit runs on 120 watts and has an output of 140 amp, it is ideal for home projects and automotive work.

Requiring common 120 volt input power, the Weld-Pak 140HD can be used almost anywhere. With simple two knob control, the machine is easy to set up for gasless flux-cored welding for deep penetration on thicker steel or gas-shielded MIG welding on thin gauge steel, stainless or aluminum.

Compare the precise drive, rugged construction and full list of standard accessories…the Lincoln Electric Weld-Pak 140HD is an excellent choice!

NOTE: There are several Lincoln 140 Models such as the Weld Pak 140 (which we review here), the MIG Pak 140, the Easy MIG 140 and the Power MIG 140. There is even a commercial version–the Lincoln 140C. While they are very similar, there are small differences that you should investigate. For example, some will include the Magnum 100L MIG Gun while others included the Magnum Pro 100L Mig Gun. Another small difference is the drive for the wire feed.

Lincoln 140 HD Features

Power – This welder can run with the same power (120V) found in your home.

Wire feed – Experienced welding professionals will know that the quality of a wire-feed system can make or break a MIG-welder. As such, Lincoln have worked hard to perfect their wire feed.

The Lincoln 140 HD is fitted with a wire feed drive that can be adjusted between 50 to 500 per minute. Also, the unit uses a 2-roller gearbox that allows for a better grip on the wire and less tension needed to push the wire along.

User-friendly – The Lincoln 140 HD welder is easy to use, no matter your experience level. In fact, the welder can be used straight out of the box. If you’re still unsure, then turn your attention to the instructions on the inside of the door, which allows for a smooth configure process. As the Lincoln 140 HD is a MIG welder, it allows for thin steel welds up to 3/16 inch in a single pass. If you want to take on thicker metals, then the flux-cored function allows for thicker steel welds up to 5/16 inch.

Portability – Weighing a mere 50lbs and with a useful carry handle, the Lincoln 140 can be easily moved from job to job.

Warranty – To give you peace of mind, Lincoln offers all customers a three-year warranty on all welding units. However, make sure to read the small print. Fox example; make sure your Lincoln is serviced by a manufacturer-approved facility. By the same token, the warranty doesn’t cover damaged caused by improper use. They have an extensive network of service and distributors who can fix your welder. To find one, click here.


Typical of a Lincoln product, this welder gets positive reviews, and we can see why. Though it has some cons like a slightly short cable, the welder’s versatility and build-quality more than makes up for it.

The main selling point of this welder for many people will be that the unit is powered by traditional voltage power found in your everyday home, which allows for at-home welding.

For most welding jobs, the Lincoln 140 will be the ideal choice. It’s a simple welder that can deal with varying sizes and gauges of steel.
