    Default mm140

    I like my mm140. I'm a beginner and it is pretty strait forward. The dealer said, "It's idiot proof". I said SOLD! I'm trying to upload some info. of the mm140 to this post. I gave 715.00 for mine.

    wow $715 you could have gotten the new MM180 for $742.
    or the hobart 180 for $702.
    heck even the MM135 was less $$ than that. where did you get it? and did they throw in some goodies ?
    here is the IOC link i got the prices from i got my MIG,TIG, and plasma cutter from them great service.

    i supose it not important now how much it was, you should be real happy with it. its gotten good reviews and i'm shore it will be loads of fun just as my first MIG was when it showed up at the door.
    befor you know it you will be finding stuff on the side of the road and bringing it home just so you can cut it up and weld it into something else.

    That sucks! I always rush into these things! I found this site too late. The MSRP was 789.00 and thats what got me. Live and learn I guess. Thanks for pointing that out though. The folks here will be alot of help w/ future purchases.

    Wink let it goooooo

    best not to look back, just be happy you got a great welder and enjoy it. about a week after i got my TA-185 i found a dyn200 compleat for $1500 on one of the sites, just befor i exploded i stoped and decided to let it go, i got a good welder and i'm happy with it. could of should of would of, never helped any one.
    i have had my MM135 for around 5 years now and been verry happy with it just as you should be with the new 140, dont look back just start thinking about what you are going to make first and you will be all happy again.

    Another vote for the MM135. I learned how to weld on one, used it for about 4 yrs and sold it for nearly what I paid for it. Upgraded to MM175 = another great machine.

    Any thoughts?
    Get the HH187 and run..in my opinion there isn't enough price difference in the two (140-187) not to buy the 187.

    Does your MM 140 have the Auto-set mode?

    Yes, Danny. It seems to work as they say. So far that is the only setting I have used, Other than amp setting for thickness of base material. I plan to post my progress as I use it more. As I posted earlier I am still a beginner, so my info. may be vague.
