I ended up getting a personal 3yr loan (lower payments). If you lease from Miller for a longer than 1 yr, than it's not such a good deal anymore - bank loans are cheaper long term.
    Just another reason to buy red machines!! They like dealing with individuals!

    Thank you all for your replies, I guess it's a trip to my local credit Union. I think at 9.5% interest for a three yr plan I can handle a 100 bucks a month. I hate loans, I'd love to just "come up with the money" but life now days ain't as rich as it was a few yrs. back. I'm looking at the Miller Bobcat 250 Welder/Gen. I see them on E-bay for about 3100 with free shipping. Do you all think thats the way too go? Again Thank you for the Information.

    For the same $$ price wise you could get a Ranger 250 from a local supplier and get 3.9% financing..............and frankly no I don't think a Bobcat is the way to go.

    I would say that a Ranger 250 is heads and tails above a bobcat.
    I have seen a least a couple businesses supported by a Ranger 250

    9.5% sounds pretty stiff. Most of the credit unions in California will give you 5 to 6% on a personal loan if you have a small account with them....mabe you should shop around a little more.

    They are both good American companys! I would chose the Ranger 250 also as it has a better welding arc than the boobcat.
