Got my millermatic 211 in the mail today. What a step up from my lincoln weld pac 100.
Definitely need to learn to move faster. Lots of heat by comparison. Will send pictures of first project soon. :cool2:

I bought the exact same welder and had a Weld Pac 100, too. Huge difference!

Bought the same machine, not so much a step up in power for me but a huge step up in quality and about 20 years newer. I'm constantly amazed at the output from a machine I can carry in one hand

I put my new miller 211 through its paces last week building hand rails had to make 7 of these it ended up making 1008 welds 1" long. Over 3 days. It did pretty well had a couple of feed issues getting bound up. I was using flux core. I built the 2" square tubing frame using my CST 280 stick welder 7018 .030https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170305/77bce2267b9610a4832bcb8c99290674.jpg

Nice. I love my 211 too. Plenty of power on tap.

We bought the older transformer right before the new inverter came out and had I had about 900ish welds run through it between two trailers projects. Then we got the new one and I did another trailer all welds are between 2.5-6" long and are a mixture of up, down, flat and overhead neither welder missed a beat once going through 4 spools of .035 wire in 3-5 days time. They'll be another trailer between Easter and summer so I'll get more time on the inverter based but so far no gripes compared to the transformer but man did the weight change make a difference.

I had the older model of the 211, bought it about 6 months before this lighter version was announced. LOVED my machine, but at the time I had to take it with me on little jobs a lot, and the weight was terrible....so I sold it and bought this newer one and man it's awesome. I've been running pretty much everything I do with this machine since May of last year. No reason to upgrade yet.

@gmmandan, hows the auto set with the flux core?

@gmmandan, hows the auto set with the flux core?

I think it tends to run just a wee bit hot if you're doing thinner materials. 3/16"-3/8" runs good. 1/8" runs ok. Thinner than 1/8" be careful.
