    Default Millermatic 140

    Does anyone have one of these? I just picked one up and just wanted to know how other people like them. I can't find anything about them on the web-site or on any threads. The dealer said they just came out w/ them 6 months ago. Seems to work good, to the best of my knowledge. Thanks in advance for any replies.

    Well not much is know by many ... YET. There are new and I doubt anyone had one 6 months ago ...... 2-4 weeks is more like it.

    Miller releases new merchandise regionally, they will not release much info until the product has been released in ALL markets. From what little I know it may be another 2 weeks, slightly more for this to occur.

    Where did you get yours and most importantly, HOW MUCH???

    We are looking to get one for a Christmas gift, maybe.

    Default MM140 AND MM180 prices

    I can't help with spec sheets, but here's the pricing:

    MM140 w/auto set feature: MSRP: $789.00 (machine only) or MSRP: $862 with cart

    MM180 has a MSRP of $958.00 or $1020 with the cart

    ...negotiate well and only pay list if you're getting a bunch of free stuff with the deal!

    I bought it 1 week ago @ Monroe Welding Supply in Monroe,La. I got it for 715.00, machine only! Seeing how I am a "Rookie" It seemed to be a good choice. Thus far the only faults have been the user. I wish I could be more useful but I have no background to compare it to. Thanks for your help! I can send anyone an e-mail that wants the info. sheet that came w/ it.

    IOC has them listed on there site at $715 free shipping the MM180 is only $742 free shipping
    for the $27 diference i would go for the MM180 unless you dont have 220V power.
    the MM140 &180 were just released in my area on the 17th of this month so it may be a wile befor lots of feedback is available but what i have herd is goo. they give the option to remove the WST if you do not like it or use it if you do, that seemed to be the only complaint with the MM135/175's i have had the MM135 for about 5 years and its been a great welder no complaints at all. back when i got it there was a $300 diference between the MM135& the 175 i supose the new electronics for the WST on off option has raised the $$ a bit but would expect it to be just a relyable as the old modle, meaning you should have no problems with it and be a happy camper for many years to come.
    here is a link to IOC is any one is interested.

    Geez ... that sorta knocks the MM140 out of the " Christmas Gift " budget range. Maybe I can get a discounted MM135

    Good thing what you ordered from came working and fully functional. Not sure what your opinion would be had one of them been DOA. But then again after reading about someone else's problem with a plasma cutter that was 'ordered', I will keep with picking large items up locally, even if locally is a 200 mile road trip!

    If you look closely you'll see that the $715 MM 140 is the unit with Auto-Set. I imagine the standard MM 140 will be less expensive.

    What the devil is " Auto-Set " ??? Is this where the machine sets wire speed to track voltage set by the user?

    heheh ... I broke the bank in buyint the MM210 .... now we are gonna squeeze the penny so hard on buying a 120V unit that Lincoln is gonna cry from the pain!!!

    Hmm, I think I know who you are talking about ;-) I agree, IOC got the last penny it will ever see from me. I thought all the places near me only dealt with Industrial clients. I was wrong. From now on, I will be buying locally, even if it means spending an extra hundred bucks.

    i got great service from IOC after the sale, when i got my TA-185 i told him the torch kit was missing a bacl cap and the foot pedle plug did not have a wire clamp on it, he said no problem. shipped me out a new clip for the foot pedle and a new back cap, got it in about 3 days, then found out the foot controle plug had been drilled out to large to hold the screws and that was why the clamp fell out, he got me the phone # to the TA-185 corpret servic people and told me he could call them for me but it would be better if i delt with them direct. i said no problem and made the call
    this is where the problems started. and probly why you got sent to a local service center. apearently local sales people (or internet sales people) cant just request parts, they have to be seen by a authorized service center, then the service center can call to request the needed parts, so i had to take the foot controle to rochester to show them it was broken as the TA people would not take my word for it. i had to send them the part or take it to a service center. well i did not want to send off my foot controle i wanted to be able to use it wile waiting on the part and the service center is 100mile round trip. the service guy was nice enough to make the call unseen and TA sent him a new foot controle then called me in to exchange it. so even if i had bought it at my LWS they would have done the same thing send me to rochester to a service center because they are not authorized to say if something is broken or not. so even if you get a welder localy or threw the internet service, repair work will still need to be done threw an autherized service center and if your local store is not an autherized service center they will not be eny more help than a internet sale, well they might ship the welder out for you insted of you having to take it but it will still need to get to a service center befor any thing can be done.
    my guess would be this stems form people that do not have a clue how to weld trying to get a working welder replaced because it dosent work when they are using solid wire without gas, or have the setting all messed up and its operator not the welder thats the problem.
    so after dealing with a repair isue, and talking with several repair people and places, i give IOC an A+ on after sale service. i could have mailed the peddle back to him and he would have maile it to TA but by him giving me the phone #'s needed and alowing me to do it localy saved me down time as i could still use the controle wile waiting for the new one, and i got a good look into the repair process. and i can tell ya its not as simple as just give me a new one, even right out of the box.
    after the repair expereance i will be giving IOC all my future buisness, i think he did the best he could in my situation. witch is the same thing my LWS did when i took it to him, he said it had to go to rochester, just as IOC said.
    i have a new foot control now and all is good.
    thanks for the help
