Reviewing the Fronius TransSteel 2200 Multiprocess Welder Series

Reviewing the Fronius TransSteel 2200 Multiprocess Welder Series

The new series of Fronius TransSteel 2200 multiprocess welders offer either MIG and stick together or MIG, TIG, and stick multiprocess welding in sturdy cases that can withstand heavy duty projects and a series of highly functional features that simplify the welding process.

While ESAB, Miller, and Lincoln each have strong multiprocess welders contending for customers, Fronius has some unique features that make it well worth your time to check out. Here are a few of the reasons why customers are asking about the two Fronius TransSteel 2200 multiprocess welders on sale at Baker’s Gas and Welding:

Portable and Lightweight Fronius Welder

Although the heavy plastic shell can handle a lot of impact on the job site, the welder itself is only 34 pounds and has a handle and strap for easy movement around the job site. The heavy plastic components of the spools inside are part of what makes it lightweight while not sacrificing on durability. The machine is also covered by a 3-year warranty. 

With a welder this light, you can even haul it out to a job site as far as 330 feet from a power source, running it with an extension cord. In a test on the Baker’s Gas and Welding lot, a welder was able to MIG weld at the end of a 325 foot extension cord. Check out the end of this Fronius review for the test. 

The TransSteel’s Incredible MIG Welding Possibilities

The Fronius TransSteel 2200 runs wire so well that it doesn’t even require a spool gun. It simply feeds the wire through without letting up or jamming. In fact, you can even tie the hose in a knot and it will still feed the wire continuously! Baker’s tested this out in the review video and found that to be true as well. As far as the MIG gun goes, it has a swivel ball design on the handle and a comfortable ergonomic design that welders rave about.

There are two wire spools inside the machine that can drive either 10 and 2 pound wire, making it a snap to swap out one wire for another while on the job site. If you need some help picking the right wire, there’s a size chart inside the machine. Also each of the components inside the welder are color coded to match the sizes listed on the chart. 

If you aren’t sure which settings to use, Fronius offers 26 different preset options. Simply enter the material, wire thickness, and welding process into the machine, tweak if needed, and then you’ll be ready to weld. 

Unique Fronius Multiple Shielding Gas Hookups

On the back there are two dual gas solenoid valves. You can plug in your own regulator or gas meter, and an included adaptor can be plugged in on the back to give you options for your shielding gas. 

Versatile Plugs on Fronius Welders

The TransSteel 2200 comes with three different plug options, 110 and 220V power as well as a dryer plug adaptor. All Fronius plugs are universal so that you can use them in any unit. They come with the added security of twisting and locking into place. 

A More Efficient Multiprocess Welder

You won’t have to spend a lot of cash on consumables in the coming months because Fronius welders come with extremely sturdy contact tips and high heat defusers. They have been tested to last as much as six to ten times longer than the consumables for comparable welders. 

Investing in a Fronius welding machine today will pay off in the years to come, not to mention saving you a lot of time since you don’t have to swap out consumables often. 

If you’re concerned about the duty cycle for this light machine, you’ll have plenty of power for projects, getting 100% at 105 AMPS (110) and 100% at 150 Amps (230V). While welding on 5/16 plate you will be around 210 AMP will land at a 30-35% duty cycle.
