Hello and thanks in advance for the help.
I have a 'Home Depot Special' Lincoln mig welder. I'd like to upgrade to a better quality machine, having fought with a variet of issues like feeding, consistent arc, etc..
I had a good look at a Lincoln PowerMig 180 and it looks like a good machine - well made, especially in the wire feed mechanism. Lincoln's competitive comparison skewers the wire feed on the Millermatic 180, but I can't find a comparison with with Millermatic 211.
I haven't seen a '211 anywhere, so I don't know how its drive compares to the Lincoln 180. I'd probably prefer the 211 over the L180, based on the specs and the option to run it on 110 (hey - you never know).
Any comments? The reviews I've read on the 211 seem pretty favorable.
