    Do you have 220 or 110. If 220, get a Lincoln 175.

    I say Miller 175. A little less powerful but a lot less money than the 210 and much better than a Lincoln.

    i like my hobart 180 handler, anything heavy i start up the lincoln classic 250 and use a stick, usually a 7018 with a p5 root or my heliarc root depends on what i'm welding, but a 180 handler will weld up to 1/4" and is plenty for a bumper, and you can buy them at tractor supply co. i got mine on a sale they were having and i think i paid $325.

    I just got my Lincoln 215, it'll handle anything. Its got a range from 30 amps to 250 amps. :D I used to have a home depot Lincoln 175HD.... DON'T buy one, I would spend the majority of my time welding cursing that lil POS. It wa good for rod iron tho......
