Yes, it can be used to weld aluminum.
No, since it is a DC-only machine and it will not TIG Weld aluminum. But you can MIG weld aluminum but for that, you need the optional Spool gun.

According to us, everlast 211si is a great multi-process welder. It is a great tool for anyone from a first-time user to a professional workshop owner.
And unlike some other multiprocess machines that are designed for MIG machine first and then TIG and sticks added, the everlast 211si is specially designed for doing all the 3 processes equally.
Though a bit expensive, when it comes to performance and reliability it is worth the price. It can not only be used to weld stainless steel but also aluminum.
On the other hand, there are a few areas that need improvement such as the difficult-to-understand operative manual and leaks in internal gas lines.
Overall, the everlast 211si is a powerful and efficient multi-process welding machine that can be used for all your typical welding needs and we recommend giving it a try.
