    Like ..hard to get the arc going and when you get it going ..hard to maintain it

    the rods themselves are usually the culprit with that description.any inverter should start and maintain an arc perfectly
    are they 6013?what brand,size?what amps

    Are you running the welder with an extension cord?
    The 13A plug is wired with a good wire section?
    Are welding leads ,electrod holder and ground clamp in good shape?
    Are the dinse plugs and sockets clean?

    There are many things that can reduce the quality of your arc ,as input and output connections as well also the electrode itself can be garbage
    Upload some photos about your equipment and maybe we can help you to understand what is wrong because is very difficult that this problem is because the welder itself.
    Essentially an inverter welder also the cheapest one can run 6013 better than a buzz box
    I have a cheap stamos welder , using the stock electrode holder and ground clamp is not very good to use ...
    I had to change them with proper quantity electrode holder and ground clamp to have a great experience with it .
    I bought an electrode holder by sacit and a brass injection moulded ground clamp and now is a totally different machine .

    Have you tried decent brand dry rods? I have a box of diy shop special rods that do that, swooped to decent rods and the problem disappears.

    my sticks that get left out in the workshop play up, grab some dry ones out of the house all is good again, oh and one more thing I found the miller set had a secret setting for a low voltage start on the stick OCV.

    I'm using Oerlikon 6013 rods at the moment, but decent brand should be ok, if you look on here the subject of good 6013 is well covered.
