    let it goooooo

    best not to look back, just be happy you got a great welder and enjoy it. about a week after i got my TA-185 i found a dyn200 compleat for $1500 on one of the sites, just befor i exploded i stoped and decided to let it go, i got a good welder and i'm happy with it. could of should of would of, never helped any one.
    i have had my MM135 for around 5 years now and been verry happy with it just as you should be with the new 140, dont look back just start thinking about what you are going to make first and you will be all happy again.
    thanks for the help

      Another vote for the MM135. I learned how to weld on one, used it for about 4 yrs and sold it for nearly what I paid for it. Upgraded to MM175 = another great machine.

        Any thoughts?
        Get the HH187 and run..in my opinion there isn't enough price difference in the two (140-187) not to buy the 187.
        Happy holidays, Farris

          Does your MM 140 have the Auto-set mode?

            Yes, Danny. It seems to work as they say. So far that is the only setting I have used, Other than amp setting for thickness of base material. I plan to post my progress as I use it more. As I posted earlier I am still a beginner, so my info. may be vague.

              here are the tank and gage covers i told you about in the PM, have to post the pic's in here as you cant in a PM.
              depending on weather you get the cammo or blue cover for the welder you can get the tanke and gage to match, thease are on 80quft tanks

                You can't really go wrong with the mm 135. I replaced my lincoln 135 with the mm 135 and it was the best thing i ever did. My little rig has paid for itself ten times over since 06'.
