And so it goes it seems. You don't shoot elephants with 22's and you don't squirrel hunt with 30-06's. Either is possible and make the kill.

I know this welder.
Again not to pick on one's machine and/or ego. This thing is a whopping pile of gerbil sh!&. This of course providing it's the "pro" model that the HD carries. One of the guys that works in the shop got one for his nephew and brought it along with his nephew to take it for a test drive. I laughed so hard I dam& near passed out and as a result I can only and vaguely remember that it was constructed like something you would see in a HF store and perhaps it's only competition would be a bic lighter. I own 2 Lincoln machines and I can only surmise that: Lincoln has a low-end product to satisfy weekend fun-seekers and of course the professional products?

Once again, everything you stated should have been noticed in Lowe's, not once you got home. .
It seems to me you both went out and made a spur of the moment decision, and now are trying to somehow blame Lincoln for your lack of research.
I have no problem accepting someone's criticism of a product, but only when it has merit.
One more thing. If it had never been used, why didn't you just take it back to Lowe's for a full refund?
And I noticed no one else was able to give him an answer as to what is the difference between a PowerMig 140 and a MigPak 140, and why is that?
Because one is a pro model sold only through recognized welding distributors that they are happy to provide specs for, and the other is a retail product that they really don't care enough about to show on their website
Flame me, defend them if you please. But in small Migs right now its Miller or HobartMiller MM210
