    Is LINCOLN selling the same model under two different names through 2 different vendors??

    Case in point ....


    Lincoln SP135 ( Lowes )

    Lincoln Weldpak 3200 ( Home Depot )

    Both are 135 Amp units, and I can 'steal' on from HD, as I have a 10% off coupon AND get an " employee discount " on top of the 10%.
    I think the one Lowes caries is called the Pro-mig 135 (now the Pro-mig 140), at least thats what they are called here. I will check it out as I need to get Mike from school and go there to get him some gloves that fit. Anyway both the small Lincolns are consumer models, the Lincoln rep told me they are a different division than the + or T models (I guess now they are C or T models. IOC, if you like them usually has referb'ed SP-135T models, but they cost more than the refurb'ed HH140's from Northern (I think thats the place). If you are squeezing pennies to get a 120V machine I would recommend the HH140 (25A low end vs. most of the others at 30A) as the best for the money, I don't know about the new Lincolns or Millers but they will be more money anyway and I don't think they could be much better at throwing a bead than the HH140. JMO of course. Having said all that I guess 20% off is a deal on that HD3200, it should also do what you need and if you work there you won't have any problem taking it back if there is a problem.

      From the mouth of the horse ( Lincoln )

      Gary:

      This (3200 HD)is the same model as the SP135T sold by our Welding Distributor but it comes with a small undercarriage with a very small cylinder mount.

          Well Lincoln assured me the 3200 was the SP135T.

          My cousin was able to secure me a deal for somewhere around $299 + tax
          ( new unit - full 3 yr warranty )

          So for $314, the boy gets a Lincoln SP135T for xmas.

            $389 for the HH140 is a good price. it also has a good reputation, as dose the sp, although it seems i have herd of a few feed motor problems with the sp's but not enough that i think its a big problem, with limited home use it should be fine.
            although if it wetre My $$ the HH140 would be my choice at $389 if you had a tight budget.
            thanks for the help
