I had debated this machine vs. a smaller machine (Hobart 210 MVP), but decided to get the larger one. The extra amps will come in handy, especially on aluminum. The shipment arrived in 3 days, and the guys wheeled it right into my garage. The machine is very smooth, i am using 0.030 ER70-S6 wire and C25 gas. I have a Millermatic 251 and the arc on this machine is smoother. It has been a great purchase and i would buy it again.

Looked at welders a long time. All brands - Lincoln, Miller, Thermal Arc and others. Kept coming back to this one so i bought it and haven't regretted it one bit. It doesn't have fance digital displays but if your an experienced welder you don't need that stuff anyways. It will burn wire as long as you want to with steady current and feed speed.

I build a large bird house for my pterodactyl and it worked awesome. Even terry my pterodactyl was commenting on how clean my welds and how good the penetration was with the machine. My next project is a steel porch for terry off his new house. If i had to buy a welder again it would be this one.

Easy to set up and get running, uses commonly available Miller parts ( drive rollers, tips, etc.), works well on everything I have used it for so far (16ga auto body sheet metal to 3/8 plate), seems to be built like an industrial machine, although it is priced like a hobby grade welder. I also like that the fan only runs when it needs to, which is not very often from what I have seen. Mostly it just sits there making a faint hum, i had to put it under a pretty decent load to get the fan to cycle on. User friendly as far as adjustments and wire size changes.

I had to choose between this and a Miller 252 for more money. Take away the blue paint and digital gauge and it's the same machine. I weld for a living and this machine will burn metal fast. Never had any wire feed issues, it will take a 44lb spool and metal thickness is not a problem. I never look at any heat/wire chart, set it where I think is good and just flat weld. This machine will go up against any Miller welder and do fine.

This is the first full size Mig Welder I Have Used/Purchased. I have mostly used stick a welder and small flux-core mig in our fab shop over the past 17 years, but needed a mig capable of aluminum welding. The price value, and ease of operation was exactly what I expected after reading other reviews. Steel welding with solid wire is so much easier than flux-core. Perfect machine for our shop.
