Hi,
I'm thinking of buying the Hobart 187 but would like to know if there are any negatives associated with the wire feed speed tracking. On the Hobart site I see that the 187 has this feature but the Handler 210 does not. Has anyone had bad experiences with this feature?

TIA

I can't think of any negatives of this feature on a tapped voltage machine. I would not want wire feed speed tracking on infinitely variable voltage.
