    plz help

    Keep your credit standings good and don't default on loans. Don't borrow more than you can pay back.

      Don't know where you live? But my local Airgas has a lease program on most Miller machines, and on tanks. Might work for you? it is a little easier due to the fact they will come take the machine if you don't make your payment. I think the min is 36 months? Don't quote me on that. Payments are relatively low on a MM 211, or 252. Worth a shot!!

          If you're asking whether a Miller 211 or 252 is acceptable on pipelines you're going to need more help than anyone here can give.

              You need to find out what is acceptable in the industry you are working in and for hte company you are working for, Miller is just fine here, they generally only spec the amount of amps you need to supply here, nothing brand specific.
              As far as buying it, I would buy a used welder until you can afford to pay cash for a new one. Plenty of engine drives out there cheap.

                  Are you a qualified welder?, ie, have taken the proper schooling and graduated through an apprentiseship course.

                  IF so just go to your local LWS they usually have outside loan companys in place for this purpose.
