The welding machine is made entirely in a metal case including the front panel. The unit is powered by a 220 V network and is equipped with four regulators and light indication of mode, operation and overheating. The maximum current is 190 A and can weld metals up to 15 mm thick. Inside, the inverter technology is applied, providing high power and constant current. Users in the reviews note that the Resant apparatus cooks softly and functions well as a semiautomatic device with different protective gases.
The experts added this modification from Resant to the rating as the best in terms of versatility. The device supports three welding modes: manual with coated electrodes (MMA), semi-automatic (MIG), and argon with a tungsten needle (TIG). This will come in handy when changing materials frequently (stainless steel, carbon steel, cast iron) and will allow you to apply strong seams.
- cooks with electrodes with a diameter of 1 to 5 mm;
- supports three types of welding;
- light weight 13 kg for transportation;
- possibility of separate adjustment of current strength, additive feed rate and volts.
- only small diameter 0.6-0.8 mm welding wire can be installed;
- with voltage drops in the network, power drops;
- thin brackets for fixing the shoulder strap;
- no display.
RESANTA SAI-230 AD
Another Resant welding inverter with the ability to connect a conventional electrode holder and an argon torch. In any type of welding, you can set the current strength from 10 to 230 A, which is suitable for a steel thickness of 1.0-20 mm. The device has compact dimensions 360x135x232 mm and is convenient for frequent transportation and use at high-altitude installation work. The Resant inverter is protected by a durable metal casing with perforations for ventilation. Owners in the reviews love the thin TIG seams and the overheating protection.
Our experts have added the device to the rating, since this Resant model produces an open-circuit voltage of 85 V. Such indicators allow you to easily ignite the arc without long tapping on the surface. This is useful for finishing products (making doors, safes) in order to reduce the subsequent machining of the heat-affected zone.
- complete with torch and electrode holder;
- withstands harsh operating conditions;
- “Fast and Furious” function to prevent sticking;
- wide and comfortable shoulder strap.
- short cables;
- no display;
- amperes are set by eye due to the lack of a detailed scale;
- the price is quite high.
Resant's classic semiautomatic device with inverter technology and constant current. It gives a value from 20 to 165 A and is already equipped with a burner and a ground wire. The body has a rigid handle for carrying the welding machine. Buyers note in reviews that Resanta can withstand voltage dips and is suitable even for use in rural areas where weak power lines are stretched. The control panel is intuitive and you don't need to look at the instructions every time. In terms of assembly, the device is hardy and lasts for 7-10 years. The product is famous for its maintainability – you can get spare parts for it in any region of Russia.
Our experts have rated the welding machine as the best for car body repair. When connecting a cylinder with carbon dioxide or a mixture with argon, it will turn out to impose narrow seams on the body metal, which is useful at a service station. The duty cycle of 70% allows it to be operated throughout the day.
- clamps are provided for fast cable winding;
- can be cooked for 7 minutes with 3 minute breaks for cooling;
- compact dimensions for frequent transitions and changes in the working area;
- light weight 11.5 kg.
- primitive bulky burner;
- front panel made of plastic;
- no display;
- power switches can be easily knocked off by lightly brushing against clothing.
This is the most successful welding machine from the manufacturer Resant, combining power with a current of 250 A, cost and comfort in setting the settings. The front panel has a digital display and two controls. The switches are protected by a transparent plexiglass screen that prevents accidental knocking of readings when in contact with clothing. The values on the screen are bright and clearly visible from a distance of 5 m. The owners in the reviews note the possibility of welding with electrodes with a diameter of 6 mm, which is not supported by other models of this manufacturer. The machine is equipped with a 'Hot Start' function, which helps beginners to easily strike the welding arc even on rusty metal.
In our opinion, the Resant device should be rated due to its suitability to work with an input voltage of 140 to 260 V, which allows it to be used in a garage, in a country house or in the field from a generator. It also has an 'Anti-Stick' function to make welding thin metals easier.
- affordable price;
- welds steel with a cross section of up to 30 mm;
- useful functions for beginners;
- digital display with protection.
- supports only one type of MMA welding;
- the mass clamp spring weakens quickly and will have to be replaced for reliable contact;
- short cables;
- budget electrode holder.
