If you've been following me for the last couple of weeks now. Then you know I've been looking to upgrade my current welder to something that offers better penetration, has the ability to run gas if I should so choose, and has a way for me to order parts if needed in order to replace anything that may fail over time. It's always a good idea to get a warranty. When I bought the 90 AMP Chicago Electric Flux Core I didn't bother because I knew that it would make it longer than the two year warranty. Since I've owned one in the past I didn't bother. I figured it was a throw away at $100; However, this time I decided to purchase the one year warranty from harbor freight because I was paying a lot more for what I feel is a better quality welder. At $500 I wasn't going to throw it away. Also Since Titanium is still a pretty New Line up I wanted to make sure I had the ability of returning it hassle free should something go wrong. I also learned that if I come back into Harbor Freight before my warranty expires I can Re-New my warranty and I will continue to receive the hassle free return or exchange. I Love that! I have also learned that with Vulcan as well as Titanium that there is a number that I can call, tell them of my issue and they are more than willing to send me the replacement component that has failed should I decide not to Re-New my warranty. Awesomeness!! Even better!! So needless to say I am very happy with my purchase and the super awesome information that I received from their employees and store managers. I will put the telephone number down below so you can call and speak with someone if your having any issues with your welder or any other Tool that you've purchased from Harbor Freight. Since I'm not planning on using this welder everyday and I'm not using it professionally I have no problem recommending this welder to all of my DIY guys and gals or Hobbyists that are just getting started. It's Night and Day with the type of Welds that this Titanium can do over the Chicago Electric. Hope you enjoy the content. Give me a thumbs up if you like the video and share if you'd like to. I'll try to post some time stamps down below to help speed things along and get you to the point of the video your interested in.

My dad and I will be doing a more in depth review and breakdown of the Titanium MIG 170 vs. The Miller 211 using gas, flux and 120v compared to 240v in a future video. This video will be posted on his channel so make sure to subscribe to him so you can be notified when we do the video. He'll also be sharing his thoughts on the Chicago Electric 90 Amp flux core. I'll put the link to his channel down below.
