    I've done tons of searches and have finally talked myself out of a 110v MIG welder and will opt for the 220. Hobart and Miller carry some very comparable 175's from what i can see in the pics online. Are there any others I should be looking at? Is one of these better than the other? The miller seems to be $100 more.


    Just gathering info

    "by the biggest you can possibly afford"
    is the advice I was given over and over.
    for house power that means a 250 IF you can wire a huge breaker and outlet

    If you have some more technical ?'s,about the machines.You might try posting over at hobartwelders.com.The forums are run by a couple of their engineers.They seem to be able to answer any ?'s you would have.Not overly biased towards their machines either.Hope this helps.
