    I be one of 'em, in the Las Vegas summer, too. Went through two regulators before getting an old used one that was designed for 100% CO2.

    i usually weld 1/4" most of the time.....

    I would have been on the side of the 180 folks except I have gotten several railing jobs where I had to weld sections on site. The portability and plug-in ability made it possible.

    Hey Joey,
    I been running my mm150 and the spot off of the stove outlet with some scary thick extension cords. I also can use both with my 5000 watt generac. Go with the 180. I thought about what would be the thickest metal I'd deal with, what would the majority of the work be done on, and then I added a step up in capabilty to get the 150. The 135 was cheaper but I've never said "D--n I wish I had more power", although the newer 180s or 250s are nicer units. Still I'm happy with what I got. Enjoy your upcoming purchase.

    He already said it was not in his budget or he'd get it.

    FWIW that's my choice as well...I would much prefer the arc quality as well....inverters rock!!!!

    You will always regret not getting the 180 when you had the chance. Duty cycle and power make it a MUCH better value for the little extra cost.

    But, consider the Passport!

    I always say get as much power as you can afford, you will be glad you did later.

    It might not be all that difficult to set up an outlet at the buds place if this was an issue, I find the need to move these machines highly over rated. For the extra money the 180 is a leap over the 140, almost twice the machine.

    Just get the Passport plus then you can do either stay home on 220v or go out on 110v. That what i did works great.
