    reggie,

    The TB302 is a great mig welder but if you truly need a versitile machine for light duty mig welding AND also want it for stand alone work, the 211 OR Passport is a good option.
    If you need all the power the TB can give you to weld thicker weldments, the 12RC is the way to go.


    Good luck
    A-

      I bought a Hobart 210 instead of a feeder (about a month before the Miller 211 was introduced ) & that thing is HEAVY! If you want portable, get the feeder.

          I bought one of the 211's of 2/2 and have used it for several jobs...

          I'm not a welder by any stretch opf the imagination...just like good tool and like the versatility and "no brainer" settings on the 211. The MVP system is really a great feature....

          I'm actually bidding on a Bernanrd Q200 for it....I'll let you know how it goes.

          Here are a couple of my novice welds on a recent project with the 211...It's an octagon fire pit...made with 1/4" steel plate

            Bought the MM211 a couple of weeks ago and am really liking it! I'm just a novice at this point but took it down to a professional friends shop and he was impressed with the capabilities of the 211. I had him evaluate the auto-set feature and he felt that the settings were pretty close to ideal. Now back to practice, practice, practice....
