    Absolutely.
    Depending on what you’re welding and how hard you are running the machine...

    Most guys could probably get away with a 5 gallon bucket of water and a pro con motor and pump sitting on top.

    No fan
    No cooler/ radiator
    Just in and out.

    You would be hard-pressed to heat up A 5 gallon bucket of water to the point that it affects the torch.

    Thanks for the thoughts gentlemen. I've had my 221 now for around 5years and I love it! Not a lick of trouble out of it, but I've grown tired of cooking my hand hanging on to that torch for hours so I decided it's time to do something about it. When I see a water cooler is 250bucks on scamazon and this one is 450, I have to start asking questions. After buying a torch and by the time I toss in a bag of consumables, it's starting to get close to a grand. I believe in paying for quality, but I expect something in return. The fact it will be wired to always work is something I've considered. I'm the guy that occasionally forgets to flip on the argon, but it's a game changer when you forget to flip on the cooler. Goodbye torch with a quickness!

    I'm sure you can take the cover off your 221 and find the power wire(s) that go to the receptacle in the back....
    maybe even find the proper plug ... then wire whatever cooler you want.... to come on with the welder.

    i wouldnt go that far. ive forgot to turn on the cooler and welded for a decent amount of time and nothing was burned up. but having it turn on with the welder isnt a bad idea if your absent minded like me
