I was the first in my area to get this machine ( Multimatic 200 ). I was a little hesitant at first, but I am glad i bought it. This welder is, in my opinion, the best overall welder on the market. I have been welding for a little over 20 years and to have one machine that can mig, tig, stick and incorperate a spool gun is awesome. I find myself looking for stuff to weld just to play with the welder. The only thing its lacking is the ability to cut and to tig aluminium. I am very impressed.
