    Does anyone have any experience with 12 volt welding systems like <a target="_blank" href=http://www.4x4now.com/4wstlpw.htm> this one </a>. I'd like to look into one for trail repair purposes.

    I started with nothing and I still have most of that left! - <a target="_blank" href=http://www.echobit.com:81/k5/> Pictures</a>

    Yes, I have a Herh Power Systems underhood welder, works well and comes in handy. Really depends on how much you are going to use it. The Premier is an excellent unit. There are also Mobi Weld and a portable mig gun called the Ready Weld I believe.

    I did an article on the Hehr one on www.off-road.com/chevy

    Have heard good things about the Premier but couldn't afford it so I bought a Ready Welder II and love it. It runs off one 12 volt battery for sheetmetal and two 12 volt batteries for everything else. I installed a second battery for it. It cost me $426 + tax. it will weld up to 1/2" steel and 3/4" aluminum.
