Default Choosing a welder

I was wondering what your opinions are on Hobart welders. I am lookin at either the handler 187 or the 210. I was just wondering if anybody on here has either of these and if they are happy with it.

Just got this home last week 2 day wait from sears internet order to doorstep.

We rewired the garage to, seeing that it only had 60amps. We ran a 100amp breaker and aluminum wire to a new 100 amp service box. Wasn't too bad and cost me about 200$. Now I have all the power I'll need and no worries if the 220v air compressor and welder are running at the same time.
