    I went into the local Miller shop and talked to the sales rep about the Miller 180 VS Hobart 210. The sale rep stated I should go with the Miller do to heavier internals. We talked about the possible need for the 210's extra power and I was told the 180 was enough to do all the jobs the 210 was capable of doing. Still think the 210 is the way to go on this, just as it was stated you can turn a 210 down if you need to, but you can't turn a 180 up...

    The LWS may be saying that because he does not sell Hobart Handler 210 welders. Millers will have better drive (all metal) than Hobarts. I'd rather have more power of the Hobart Handler 210. Also, have 7 voltage taps on the HH210 will be easier to dial in the arc.

    I have used my HH210 on some very heavy stuff and had no issues. It will just about keep up with the MM210 and will weld smoother in most cases. I ran my MM and HH side by side. When I want to weld something, I'll usually reach for the HH first...sorry Miller. So, since this HH is amost keeping up with the MM210, I really doubt the MM180 would keep up with the HH. If you get the HH, you will not be unhappy.

    Thanks, Don. I would not have expected that. The nice thing about a spoolgun is the ability to get further out from the machine, in addition to its aluminum capabilities, but if the price is right, for those that need what it CAN still do, I suppose it fills a narrow niche.

    Smaller as in shorter...I should have said shorter. IIRC, the gun head is much the same if not the same.
