The MVP 110/220v feature makes this a good light duty flux-core field welder also (although it does weigh 75 lbs, so I wouldn't want to hand-carry it daily). For occational field welding, I throw it in the truck and go! (140 amps at 110v, 210 amps at 220v).
Now I can use my TIG for what it's best at, heat control on thin material.
I also contemplated buying the Miller 211 MVP with Autoset. I tried the Autoset feature at the local college on two seperate Miller 210's, and was unimpressed. Ended up just simply setting the volts and wire-speed manually. The Miller does have the better continuously variable voltage select vs the Hobart 7 position voltage tap switch. Not a problem for me as 7 taps is more than enough to dial in the sweet spot. They both are quality american made machines. The main pluses for me are the Hobart is somewhat smaller and less expensive. I purchased a new cart and a 125cf cylinder with the cost difference and still had change left over.
BTW, If your looking for an indstrial/commercial welder with a long duty cycle, look elswhere. Both the miller 211 and Hobart 210 have limited duty cycles. But for their intended purpose and for their price, they are both top notch.
UPDATE: Its been over a year now, and this thing is a dream to use. It welds with a smooth frying bacon sound and it lays perfect beads on steel. I actually now prefer the 7 voltage taps vs the continuously variable voltage control on other MIG's because I seem to find the sweet spot quicker.
I started with Stick (SMAW), because of the low cost to get started.
Spent about a year and a half learning ... am now pretty decent at it.
I'd been told that MIG is much easier, and I knew that to weld Aluminum, or thinner stock, it was the way to go.
I wanted to buy one welder that would be capable of anything that I might want to do now, or in the future.
I chose this welder because of the choice in input voltage (convenient, since I can use it anywhere), the fact that it is set up to accept an affordable spool gun, and the heat range: on the low side, it'll weld pretty thin material, on the high side, it'll weld anything I might reasonable expect to tackle.
I'm sure that this machine is an excellent one for the experienced/professional welder. I'll let the other reviewers tell you that that is the case, as I am not remotely qualified to do so.
For a learner, "harry homeowner" type, though, this machine is ideal. Flux wire (FCAW) is much easier than stick; absolutely no learning curve to getting an arc "lit", no shortening of the electrode as it burns, and much more control. MIG (GMAW) is much easier still, as the lack of a smoke plume means you can see what you are doing much better. Plus, there's no slag to clean up afterwards (you should be a little more thorough in cleaning the stock to be welded beforehand, though).
I've found welding 1/4" welded wire panels together (making animal shelters and such) to be trivially easy ... easy even to get a very good looking weld ... and extremely fast. This is something in particular that would have been very difficult and time consuming with a stick welder.Read more ›
Anyway....the job's done, I get paid, and I'm thinking I really should look into upgrading my welding setup. I bounced around on-line and read good reviews about the Hobart Handler 140, but decided to get the 115/230 volt Handler 210 instead. I figured just in case I needed the extra capacity someday I would have it. So I bought it on Amazon, it shows up in two days, and before I can finish my power cord to run it off my 230 volt dryer receptacle I decided to try it on 115 volt. Same outlet, same cord as I used with my little Lincoln, but the difference is like night and day!!! I can honestly say that this Hobart MVP 210 is the best running small mig welder that I have ever used, and I've used several over the years, at other shops, etc. Not sure how the Hobart engineers managed to do it but they nailed it. Just knocked the ball clean out of the park....Read more ›

Great welder used the first roll already! Had some problems with the wire inside the feed roller. But, I believe that is operator error. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Todd Furchert
Other than the shorter Duty cycle it welds like a big machine. Until now I thought only 220v welders were the only way to go.Published 2 months ago by chuck
