I'm hating you right now! lol jj man, thats a sweet welder.
bought the same welder today...... hope to fire it up tomorrow or sunday!
will be buying the sameone asap. Same unit we have at school, love that thing.
jealousy has now set in!
All I got is my old miller 235 mig, and that old Hergenbraectflokinwhatever 400 amp arc stick monster. oh well it works!
Is it better, or comparable to the miller 251?
I'm drooling just looking at that thing.
it is Lincon's counterpart to it. Better? Eh I think the Miller/Lincoln thing generally boils down to what you like better. I like Lincolns, even though I've never had a problem with a Miller(or used them extensively). I just love this machinea fter using it at school. Ours isn't the C(no 120 outlets on it). I'll likely get the C whenever I get around to getting one. I had a Lincoln 175 and this machine blows it away in adjustment and power. I can lay SUCH a nice bead compared to the 4 or 5 preset settings machines. I never realized what I was missing.
Oh Pete, I never asked, what did you pay for this thing? Retail is 2100 I see just wondering what you got it for. We have a local dealer that usually pretty good under MSRP. There was a used on on Ebay very recently for $1000 I really wish I had jumped on.
Sexy I want one now
