  • Hobart Handler 210 MVP

    It's the same as the MM211, yet less expensive. Even comes with the same spool gun option. Why would you need that for aluminum?

    Have you welded much alum with a mig? It sure makes it much nicer to work with...Bob

      aluminum

      I actually have never mig welded at all. I was just asking because I want to learn and those were the ones that were recommended. I may be leaning towards Hobart.

          I have not researched these two machines side by side but in the past I have found that the Miller machines usually have some upgrades vs. the Hobarts. Hence the price difference. Example would be similar parts on the Miller would be metal & Hobart plastic. Wether it makes a difference for a hobbiest or not I don't know.

            Just took a quick look at the machines & one thing I notice is Miller has infinite voltage control where Hobart has seven taps. Always heard good things about both mfg.

              I got spoiled with infinite voltage control on the millers. I have used a Hobart handler 180 to do some work and it was okay. Just don't have the adjustability. Still a quality machine to learn on. Better than a cheapie home cheapo special. I think Northern Tool had them on sale recently for $750 shipped. That a great price for a brand new 200 amp mig welder. With a good size bottle of c25 mixed gas and your still under $1000.
