Default Mig Welder

I am looking for a Mig Welder. I dont have 220 in the garage so the best 110 available is what I want. I have been looking at the Millermatic 211... That runs on both 110 and 220. My buddy has that one and it works great. Idk what an equivalent Lincoln is but I would prefer Miller or Lincoln. If im gonna buy one might as well get a nice one. Looking for used preferably around 500-800.

Please and Thank you!

The Miller you mention is a good choice, but I'd also seriously consider the Hobart like was stated above. I've had mine for 6.5 years and love it. Mine is a Handler 210. Mine only runs 220V but the newer version has the multi voltage plug like the Miller.

I might consider those. Really looking for a nice used one. Someone trying to upgrade or something.

Did some research and looks like a Lincoln 180 dual is similar to what I would like. May consider a 140 series in lincoln or miller.

Millermatic 135 in great condition? I'm considering stepping up to a 211 myself.

I have a 211 and love it, burns really good, it's a smaller package but it will lay a hell of a bead, I wouldn't hesitate buying a 211. Good luck finding one.

Yea I cant find a decently priced used one to save my life.
Just won a hobart 140. Basically the miller 211 without the 220 option. Didnt expect to win it on ebay but he accepted my offer. Gonna give that a try.
