                Hate to break it to you boys, but the lincolns you are talking about are 230 volt. I don't think lincoln even builds a 110 volt stick machine. I've used one miller thunderbolt, once, and never again. Miller, Lincoln, Hobart are all good machines, though the Lincoln and Miller have higher duty cycles, and just so you know, Miller owns Hobart. I have always liked Miller shop machines (I've also never burned up anything but a miller, and it was only one, and I toasted it twice, was only six months old, 400 amp machine). I welded for years with a powerkraft (some of the older guys will remember them, aka Monkey-Wards) ac machine when I was learning. It is 40 years old, dad still has it, and still uses it regularly. Never buy a used machine you haven't seen weld, period. If they don't want to let you try it out there is probably a very good reason. I have never used an engine drive Miller that I truly liked not even the '04 Trailblazer a company I worked for had. I did use an engine drive Hobart that was really sweet to weld with, but they don't have the duty cycle I need. My dad's ranger 250 is by far the weldingest (not a real word I know, but ya get the drift) machine I have ever used bar none. The smoothest shop machine I ever used was a Miller Dialarc 250 that had been rebuilt by Lincoln. In fact I would move stuff just so I could get to it with that machine.

                  I going to get the Hobart Stickmate lx 235 amp ac machine NEW at my local TSC store cause I Decided a while back not to get a used machine cause if you don`t get to weld with you don`t know if it is good or junk
