    What ya think of em!! I have pretty much decided to buy one just wanted to hear some opinions.

    Yeah I know they are the same as a Miller,just cant see paying the price difference for recreational welding.

    I am a Miller fan but if you are set on a Hobart they are good too. I would buy a Hobart before I would buy a Lincoln. Not saying Lincoln's are bad but I really like Millers & since Hobart is part of Miller I would use them as my second choice.

    I've got a Hobart 135, the little brother to the 180, and have been using it for about 4 years now. It is a great machine and has never let me down. I actually want to trade up to the 180 so I can do some of the thicker stuff now.
