Question Need your opinion on a Welder I want to buy.

i'm looking at the Miller Millermatic 200. The mig/tig stick machine that's portable and runs on 110 and 220 power simply by changing out the power plug that comes with it. Here's the webpage for the model I'm looking at Multimatic 200 - Multiprocess Welder - Portable Welder - Miller Welding . Check it out and let me know if its worth buying or to look for something different.

Anything miller is gonna be good as for welders. The 211 is a good choice too for hobbyists.

I've sold 5 or 6 of them with no complaints. I guess knowing what you want to do with it is most important. You can mig,stick and scratch tig with this machine.

I can mig and stick weld pretty good and have plans to build a diesel powered jeep in the future so I will need a machine that can weld just about anything. So that is why Im asking if this is a machine to buy?

Miller makes some of the best if not the best elders out there. I think that welder will do anything you want it to and then some.

2005 F250 King Ranch, CCSB, FX4, 4.5 inch rough country lift, Edge Evolution tuner, studded, nitto terra grapplers 35s, custom exhaust, intake, hids. SOLD.

Looking for my next powerstroke.

Me too. Been wanting one of these for a long long time. I would've liked an S74 feeder but the 24 will be just fine.
