  • why even build a 20% duty cycle machine?!

    I used a snap on 110v mig welder the other day and i gotta say it blew my millermatic 180 out of the water. I used to think snap on just picked the cheapest welder they could find and slap their name on it... but thats not the case at all. It had a 100% duty cycle at max amperage and welded really nice for a 110v welder. Plus it was pretty cool that the feeder was detachable.

    100% Duty Cycle @ what amperage ?
    I've never seen any mig welder with 100% duty cycle !

      What?... dude u have never seen a mig welder then. U look at the bigger industrial machines and they definetly have 100%. And yes the little 140 or 150 amp snap on is 100% at max amps. That is usually not the case with the smaller machines so thats pretty much the reason of starting this thread

          And not only that but the snap on came with an actual ground clamp.... not a piece of tin made to look like a ground clamp.

              I dont know what model it was.... used it for bout 20 minutes. I think it was a mm140. It was 120v and also is a pulse machine.

                With the price tag they've got they should be 100% duty cycle and come with an operator.

                    You obviously have internet access... so google snap on mm140. I know it was 100% dc because i looked at the specifications on the machine right after i used it. I was in awe when i seen it so i just figured i would share.

                            3 times the price of a 120v miller. 10 times the welder. Go figure

                              I usually wouldnt post something on this forum if i didnt know the facts. This is a perfect example of why. Thanks for viewing
