Used Welders for Sale – 5 Facts About Lincoln Models

When you are in the market for a new welder, sometimes it’s best to pay a little less and go the used route. This is especially true when you can find good used equipment from a reputable manufacturer that still has plenty of life left in it. Lincoln Electric has long been supplying North America with some of the best welding equipment manufactured, and some of the best used welders for sale.

Long History of Welding Innovation

Lincoln Electric is one of the big names in welding, but what many people don’t know is just how long they have been at the forefront. Lincoln Electric produced their first welding set in 1909, and in 1911 introduced the world’s first variable voltage, single operator portable welding machine.
Lincoln Electric has stayed at the fore of American manufacturing even through until present. They’ve gone 67 years without laying off a single employee, through world wars, the Great Depression or Great Recession.

Lincoln is Welding

No matter what kind of unit you’re looking for, Lincoln makes it. From TIG and MIG welders to submerged arc equipment, there’s a welder in the Lincoln family perfect for you.
Lincoln has long been at the fore of welding innovation in this nation. Their models were the first to create flexible ductile welds via a flux that was patented by the company. ArcLink, the industry’s first communication protocol, was also developed by Lincoln.

Even on the used welders for sale at S.D. Nold, you can witness their continued innovation. Though the field of welding has become more specialized over the years, Lincoln welders still remain easy to operate and multi-functional. They are always among the most popular used welders for sale.

Lincoln Electric has quite a reputation for listening to its customers as well. The new Lincoln Cross Country 300 was partially inspired by what S.D. Nold, Inc. told them their customers were looking for in a diesel-powered welder.

What to Look for When Buying a Used Welder

Whether you run a metal shop or a construction company, having your own welder on hand can be advantageous. But investing in a new welding apparatus can be cost-prohibitive. Searching the used welders for sale can represent a smart decision.

Everyone’s Got a Type

Before you go just grabbing the first welder that fits your bottom line, it’s imperative to know what the different types of welders do. MIG, TIG and stick welders all have their pros and cons, including how fast they perform and the types of metal they can be used with.

When It’s Time to Buy

Just like any expensive purchase, it’s important to do your research on the unit and the seller. Any listing should include pictures of the unit, the make and model of the welder, and how old it is.

One important piece of information you should know before buying is the duty cycle of the welder. The duty cycle is the length of time a welder can be used in the span of 10 minutes. A 60-percent duty cycle, for instance, means a welder can be used six minutes out of every 10, with a cooling period in between.

You should also look for units that have easily replaceable parts, so if something does go wrong, it’s an easy fix.
