    I have an sp175+ and have also wondered about the diff. between the pro mig 175 and the sp175t. Does the pro mig 175 come with accessories like the cheapo welding shield and slag hammer? I think that they may be the sam machine, just one comes with those "ready-to-weld" accessories.

    SP-175T• Large easy to set knobs provide 5-position adjustable tap voltage control and continuous full-range control of wire feed speed.• Large easy to set knobs provide 5-position adjustable tap voltage control and continuous full-range control of wire feed speed.

    SP-175 Plus • Continuous full-range adjustment of voltage and wire feed speed allows for fine-tuning of the arc and precise control of arc energy, or heat input.

    This is an email I received from Lincoln.

    Dear Mr Vaughn,

    The only difference between the two units is the SP-175T is a Tap
    control were the SP175 Plus is Continuous Control. Both units have common
    specifications

    Cored wire size range .035-.045"
    Input Voltage 208,230
    Polarity DC
    Primary Process Mig/Flux-Cored
    Rated CV output amps/volts/Duty Cycle 130/20/30%
    Solid wire size Range .023-.035"
    Wire Feed Speed Range (IPM) 50-400
    Wire Feed Speed Range (M/MIN) 1./2-10.2

    If I can be of further assistance please email me or call direct.

    Sincerely,

    I bought a Hobart 140 a while back and have found a couple of instances where the continous control would have been nice as compared to the tap control my unit has. My next mig will be a Miller 175 or 210.

    I didnt see a listing on Lincolns site for it, but I did find this.

    http://www.hotrodders.com/forum/lincoln-welders-there-difference-79691.html



    I wanted to know myself on a few of these Models, so I called the Lincoln Technical Department. Nice guys, and they told me that the Sp175T and the Pro Mig 175 were identical, except the badging. One is a "retail" Product (Pro Mig-read Lowe's), the other for the Lincoln Distributors.

    I am not certain about the Weld-Pak, however-
