The compact PowerMTS 251Si is one of the fourth generation of digitally controlled multi-process inverter welders from Everlast. Taking our customer's feedback into consideration from previous models, the all new PowerMTS 251SI is designed to be as versatile as ever with not only standard DC MIG, TIG and Stick welding capability but also with Synergic MIG, Pulse MIG, and Pulse TIG welding modes. This new welder is a leader in the compact multi-process welder class as both pulse MIG and pulse TIG features are not available from any other manufacturer. Additionally, the PowerMTS 251Si offers one more distinctive feature: it allows to the operator to choose from a touchless, high frequency start or a lift start in TIG mode. The stick mode offers more adjustability than ever with the addition of hot start intensity and hot start duration controls. If you are worried that these features may complicate the operation of the welder, then don't. The unit was designed with ease of operation in mind. There are no complicated menus to navigate, no touch screens to press and no complicated hidden features which are difficult to access. All controls, including burn back are now located on the panel face right where you can get to them and are grouped according to function, with an easy to understand format. All connections are right on the front of the panel. This includes the connection for the TIG torch which includes the gas connection with a gas solenoid control over pre and post flow. Compare that to the competition where you have to make the TIG connection through the side panels or through special non-standard connections with only a manually operated gas valve on the torch for scratch start or lift start, and you can see how far ahead the PowerMTS 251Si really is. Well, it makes sense when you consider Everlast was one of the first to offer a compact fully featured inverter MTS unit in the North American market.
Was a good machine but I do alot of off road fabrication …

I love this machine. Done quite a bit of hard wire with it now, both .030 and .035 steel. I’m not a veteran MIG welder, so tried out the Synergic mode. Being more of a stick welder, I just picked the amps I thought the thickness needed, and was pretty happy with the settings Synergic came up with, didn’t really have to tweak it much. I’m still getting used to the pulse feature, but have done some vertical uphill with good results.
Great customer service. Great machine.

Initially had a small problem with the machine but Everlast customer service was quick to get it worked out. Looks like it will be a very nice welder. It was packed well and came with everything you need to get started welding. Great value.
Great machine terrible manual

This welder works really well. Ive only used 220 but ive ran a few rods through stick welding, done a lot of mig welding and my buddy has done a bit of tig welding with it. The only reason im not giving it 5 stars is because the manual it comes with looks like a kid made it wit crayon… its awful. And with all the settings and multiple ways to hook this machine up it does get confusing. a welding reference chart that shows round about settings for different steel thickness would be really nice too. Coming from machines that have volt range a-h and wire speed 1-8 to a machine you can adjust to the decimal makes it difficult to dial in at times. Simple fix better manual and a reference chart and 5 stars all day long.
Great Welder, Fast, Trouble free transaction
Very Good Welder So Far

I have been using this welder now for about 6 months. Very good welder so far. I am not a pro welder. I have not tried running it on 115 volt power yet, only 230 volt. I am used to welding mig and fluxcore with a Miller 140. I can only attest to the mig and tig processes. I have not used it for stick yet. I am new to tig but so far I like what I have been able to do, I think the High Frequency start has helped to learn. This is a beast for mig and fluxcore! I have mostly used it for mig with 75/25 gas and .035 Lincoln wire from Homer Depot. Welded beautifully building a new welding table with 3/16″ thick box tubing and a 3/8″ thick top. Been rebuilding some heavy steel tables (1/4″ angle) and it is flawless. I cant wait to test it out on some 1/2″ – 3/4″. Bottom line for me in deciding to buy this over the other brands out there was bang for buck. I got a 250 amp machine (on 230 volt power) that is portable and multi process and came with all of the accessories. I didn’t have to go out and buy the tig torch or a tig peddle. It was all included. There are a lot of bells and whistles included that I haven’t tried yet but I believe will make future projects a success.
Great Machine. A lot of Bang for the Buck

Great Machine. A lot of Bang for the Buck! More features than BLUE and RED at half the cost. Synergic and Pulse Mig modes very smooth. Hooked up two bottles (1) 75/25 and (2) straight Argon with a “Y” fitting with valves so I could easily transition from Mig to Tig just with a quick purge.
Seems to be great welder takes time to figure out settings

Seems to be a great welder I’m just a hobby welder. Contacting seller through Amazon was quick and easy was able to add on spool gun. I’ve ran stick and spool gun options and am very pleased. Only draw back is there is a quite a few settings to figure out, like I was running .035 wire in spool gun but had better welds with .030 setting but saved that on a preset and whenever on similar project again I go to setting #4 and ready to go. Have not ventured into reg mig or tig yet. Also did not have very much success with aluminum welding rod on stick mode and just could not get the right setting. I’m sure with time I’ll figure it out. I couldn’t resist with the 5 yr warranty and all the options it came with.
Welder could not be better. Poor treatment during shipping. Everlast customer service has been great.

I couldn’t be happier with the welder itself. Stick, tig and mig work great. Welder sustained some shipping damage. Box was nearly destroyed. The handle was broken and one of the channels on the bottom of the welder that the rubber feet are screwed to was crushed and had to be straightened. Everlast replaced the broken handle. I was surprised the welder worked as badly treated in shipping as it was. I just removed the gas hose from another welder, plugged it and much to my surprise it worked perfectly. A week later I hooked up the regulator and hose in preparation to weld a landscaping trailer. I turned on the gas and started welding. When I came back from lunch the new cyl. was empty. I got a another new cyl. and I mixed up some soapy water to use to check for leaks. The regulator had a bad leak where it goes into the cyl. I put the regulator on a third cyl. from another welder in my shop and the leak was still present. I loosed the fitting a little and rocked it back and forth. When I removed the regulator the fitting had high and low places all around mating surface for the cyl. valve. I took pictures of the fitting and sent them to Everlast. Customer support could not have been better. They sent me a new regulator. When I got the new regulator I hooked everything up and re-soap tested all connections, Both of the hose connections had small leaks. I just replaced the hose with much better hose and swaged clamps on. I didn’t say anything to Everlast about the hose. It just wasn’t that big of a deal. I wish the gas hose had standard inert gas fittings at both ends. I may silver solder some fittings together to make an adapter. With multiple welders in my shop I have to have everything interchangeable. For a one of welder it doesn’t matter much. I’ve made three landscaping trailers and the welder has just about paid for itself. Pulse is nice, but not all that necessary for what I build. I’m sure I’ll put the pulse to good use at some point. Oh, get rid of the poor ground clamp.
