    Default 252

    I bought one of those for the union hall for tacking coupons up, I just hate the stock gun, I bought a tergaskiss 300amp gun and the machine is a whole new monster.

    I just hatted this welder before, spatter would not feed very well....

    Changed the gun and bam that machine is great nice and smooth....

    Just my $.02

    Default just bought a new mm252, having gun issues

    When I had my 252 I changed the gun out to a q300 also. They can be had new off of eBay for less than $100 if you watch the auctions.

    gotta tell ya, Miller is the best of the best in welding equipment, their equipment is top shelf and their service is equal, I explained to my rep the down falls of the gun that is supplied with the welder, i compared it to driving a rolls royce using a pinto steering wheel. my local rep talked to miller, explained my case, they swapped out a bernard q gun. they stand behind their people, service is huge,

    i need to type fast, my computer times out on this forum, dont know why. i have been buying miller since 1986, over 10 welders, any issues that i had were always fixed with a phone call, then a hand shake. their service is the best in the industry.

    When our shop had to replace two mig units due to theft we stayed with the 252s. Originally we had a 251 and a 252 on hand. When the two new units arrived from our LWS both were equipped with Bernard Q guns. There is no way the factory guns would hold up at all to the sessions of high heat and volume we put them through. If you are going to run the machine at higher settings for long periods of time just get a quality gun and burn away. Now I want to set one up to run aluminum and see how it does.
