Based on most craigslist/ebay/etc ads I see for used welders, its worth 99% the price of a new one.....

$600 wouldn't be a bad deal without a bottle. There out there with bottles for $800+

I have a guy wanting to trade that welder for a tool box I have for sale. I'm not familiar with esab welders so I was looking for some input on value.

Is the welder a pre-ban? If so you better trade up right now.

I cant say what it is worth but I know old guys that swear esab is the shit. I Prefer a miller or lincoln because you can get parts at any welding store. The $600 someone mentioned sounds good to me, if I was shopping for a used 250.

I don't think you'll get 1000 for the box, and welders are hard to find used. Your box looks like mine, same gay color and all. I paid $750 for it almost 3 years ago

I will get close to $1000 or it will sit in corner. I don't need to sell, just don't use it after I got a bigger box. What is so gay about blue??

I decided to keep the welder. It welds amazing. It cleaned up pretty nice.
