Walk Behind Welders


So I'm about to start a 90 sq flat and we are most likely doing TPO, what brand of walk behind do you guys have and what is in your opinion the best?

I haven't done any in ~15 years, but Leister was the best back then. Are they still around?

Yes. They are definitely the industry standard and well built tools. I have a Leister hand welder now. I am finding a Bak in my searches that seems to be of similar quality I was wondering about.

Also leistrer makes this dandy little in between unit here that looks to be a great in between manual and full auto model
