Thinking about buying a Hobart 210a. What do you think about this welder for the price. I can get it locally for $1035. Plan to use it working on a project truck, building small trailer, barbeque pits made from 1/4" pipe, and who knows what else. Just want a good all around mig and dont want to spend but about $1000.

That should fit the bill nicely.

I have the same unit and think it is great!

Well I bought the 210. Seemed to be the best welder for the price.

If you're mostly going to be welding 1/4" and thinner, you made a good choice. I've heard nothing but positive feedback on the performance of this unit.:cool2:

They're good machines, but if you shop around, you can get a miller for just a little more, and have infinite amperage control.

I'm guessing you meant to state variable voltage control. However, in the same 210 amperage class, the only current Miller offering I know of, is the MM 210. Which is a tapped voltage selection unit, offering 7 voltage selections. Miller's next offering after this, that does have variable voltage control, would be the MM 251. Which would be at least another $800 over what was spent on this Ironman 210.

Great points Dan. The MM210 is tapped and the MM251 is quite a bit more.

On MIG units, you adjust the voltage and on Stick units you adjust the amperage. CV versus CC.
