    Not as harsh as 5p .. Runs consistent... Tried and true...have never run any other 6010s. My edit ...should have added I only bead pipe with these

      I learned how to weld using Lincoln's Fleetweld 5P, I tried plus but it seemed mushy and less aggressive. I chased cracks on my neighbors wood burner 20 years ago with 5p and my Miller Legend and the welds are still holding it together.

        Hyundai. Ive also run Lincoln 5p which were terrible. They were difficult to restart and when you did most of the time the flux would pop off.

          Lincoln 5p+. I like to say there are two kinds of welders out there when it comes to 6010. Those like myself that do everything by themselves like the + because it cleans up so much easier, almost as a 6013 or 7014 removing the flux after a weld.

          Plain p on the other hand cuts harsher and is difficult to clean, it's like bad 6011 for that.

          I use either the Legend or a Trailblazer and absolutely love the plasticity of the + puddle. Vertical ups, most of what I do, are fun because the puddle is more like taffy than hot lava to work with.
          life is good

              If your 6010 coating slivers and comes off/is hard to start dip the rod in some water. It's too dry.

                Have too say the Lincoln Fleetwood 5p plus love them! But have used 5p and there okay, imho there better than any 6011...
                I have also used esab 6010 10 plus and there very good rods they don't seem to have as much arc blow and they easily come shiney clean
