  • Miller listened!

    Way to go Miller! I just saw a new MM 211 and 150 S yesterday and the ground clamps on both were a HUGE improvement! Great job!

    I wonder if they also upgraded the ground clamp on the Passport Plus as it looks like something made in Taiwan.

          clamp

          I just bought my millermatic 211 and the clamp sucks so bad stamped right on the side china. Not happy I spend 1000 on a this and get a crap clamp, wish they would have just raised the price 30 and put a good clamp in. I email miller tonight letting them know I'm not happy about having to buy a new clamp.

            That's great if they changed out to better clamps. The clamps on my Passport and MM175 sucked. I changed out the whole cable to thicker 2ga and put 200 amp clamps on them. They weld better with a good cable and clamp. Bravo to Miller for listening to customers.

              Question. Did they come that way from Miller or did the distributor put them on because they know the China ones are junk?

              If Miller put them on let's try this one. . .

              I want the remote foot control at half the current price. . .

                Here are a couple of options from Harbor Freight... yes, more Chinese crap, but it might be better crap.

                400 AMP = $9.99


                300 AMP = $19.99

                    The second pic above of the vice-grip style pliers appears to be a Stronghand Ground Hog, or some copy thereof. I'm guessing it's a copy if it's being sold at Harbor Freight. I have the Ground Hog on one of my stick cables and it works good.

                      I never had much issue with the clamps and the cable is sized for rated output at max duty cycle, anything less and it should be fine. At first I thought the HH210 looked kind of chincy but I actually like it and it works well.
