I dunno....I'm a semi-newbie at welding, but I'm soooo glad I bought a MIG with INFINITE HEAT control instead of the FOUR SETTINGS heat control....

I'm still learning but I've already found out different sections of the same thin metal can require slight changes in heat to get a good weld AND get good penetration

I have about the same welder. Mine is a Century. It is an 80 amp gas compatable unit. I have had it about 7 years. Don't use it much, but, has always done everything I need to do...
I have replaced floor pans, put in patch panels, and welded exhaust systems with it.
The only time I ever had to wait on it was doing exhaust work. I was useing flux core wire, and had exhaust system on the ground...used it about 15 minutes, then had to stop for about 5 minutes, till it cooled off a little...I was ready for a break, anyway...
For around the home garage, I would think that you would be happy with it. When you start on thin metal, be perpared to buy the bottle, and some argon, or whatever....you will need it.
