The Millermatic 211 with Autoset is an excellent welder, best in it's class and only costs <10% more than it's closest competition. Easy to use with good instructions and guides from Miller. Parts and consumables for Miller/Hobart are easily found at Amazon, Lowes, Home Depot, TSC and even Walmart. This is a great entry welder for the beginner and has great flexibility and features for a professional.
Update Feb 2013: Now have run >40#'s of MIG wire through the machine and wish I could give it a higher rating! Still using the original 10' gun. Love the autoset feature. Easy and very inexpensive to maintain. Cost per weld cheaper than my old stick welder and so much cleaner and easier. It's like using a glue gun. Easy to teach newbies how to make good welds. Has paid for itself many times and is fun to use. Great welder and highly recommended.
First of all, I have done lots of metal fabrication in the past. At the time, I used a full size wire feed welder. That welder had a 100% duty cycle, big Tweco gun and would weld and weld and weld. The 211 will do almost as much.
The 211 is a LOT smaller, but capable of 210 amps at full load. I have a spoolgun and weld aluminum as well. Yes, the duty cycle is a lot less, but it fits perfectly in a corner of my garage and is portable. It was easy to set up and does a great job of welding.
If you are not going to push the upper limits of welding thickness like I will, a Millermatic 180 would work just fine as well.
If this were an everyday welder, like what I have done in the past, I'd probably give it 3 stars. As an occasional welder I would give it at least 5 stars!
Ahh, now I've purchased the Miller. I had heard nothing but good reviews on the 211, so I ponied up the cash and purchased one for several projects - a trailer and a rototiller that I'm restoring. I was absolutely STUNNED at the ease and quality of this process. The welds are clean, professional-looking, and most of all, EASY! I'm NOT A WELDER, and this 211 made me look like one.
I tested some pieces, and thought, "I'll be damned. That looks NICE!" but assumed it was beginner's luck. I simply dialed in the material thickness and pulled the trigger. That was it. Nothing to it. All the test pieces held up very well to bending - the weld didn't break before the metal bent. On the finished project, there is no spatter, very little cleanup, and a clean, smooth, straight line. I started grinding off and re-welding several things done by a "professional" welder on my Jeep in a welding shop. I wish you could see the before/after pictures - mine look...perfect! His look like what I thought welds were supposed to look like. Mine were identical except: No pitting, straight, clean, uniform, no bulges, no spatter...
So, it's safe to say that I'm no welder, running this even on 120 with 1/4" steel and the included .035 wire and argon/CO2 mix was SIMPLE. Even for a non-welder like me. Spot welds, 90s, butt welds - all have turned out perfectly.
This will be the welder that will live in my shop forever.Read more ›
