    Nope. You need a CC machine. Migs are CV...Bob

    I must be really lucky...My Snap On guy still knows nothing about welding, but he knows when a shop wants to off their old equip to come talk to me. I picked up a MM251, with flowmeter, and a few extra consumables for around 1600. Its nice to have a heavier machine than my MM180.

    Also on the truck account. So 0 interest, and because I have a habit of dropping large amounts of cash on his truck, I get a bunch of free stuff from time to time too. I have mugs, hats, jackets, free tickets to events...all in all, not a bad deal.

    Never really had many problems with the wire feeder itself, they actually run quite well, its the transformer power source that drives it is the problem. Caused me alot of headaches.

    i dont regret my snap on mig. mm250sl i think i got for $2200 6 months 0 interest. mm252 with remote feeder is going for how much? 252 is a better machine but yes it does cost more.

    never had an issue with the machine but the web site says that they pride themselves on stocking parts on every item they produce for over 4 decades. dont have to buy special tips that cost 5 dollars either.

    would i purchase a snap on welder again? no.i want another brand at home but im thinking im going to have to wait ten years or so for this machine to give up the ghost.

    whats the matter with the wire feeder?

    Well then it is time to upgrade, but avoid the Snapon unit at any cost.

Which I would really love to have one but I was going to take advantage of my snap on account to get a new welder. Oh and to say! My snap on man doesn't weld so he doesn't know much about them that's why I asked you guys for your oppinions! I know this is a Miller site! So I hope I didn't offend anyone.
    Snap On screwdrivers, wrenches, ratchets, pliers and tool boxes are of outstanding quality. Most other tools with the name Snap On, you are just paying way more than you need to. $3500.00 for that welder is beyond a poor value.
    You could buy a Maxstar 150 sth AND a Millermatic 180 for that same $3500.00.
    With that example you can TIG, stick, MIG and flux core. Again, this was just a basic example using Miller welders, but you could be real close with Lincoln, Hobart, or ESAB welders as well.

    Take it from a guy that already owns too much Snap On and Miller equipment!

    Kenosha Red

    The Kenosha Red will turn to Kenosha Pink in no time.
    Then there is the gas leaks, it will leak the gas out of the gun in about a minute.
    So before you pull the trigger you have to purge. I know of two welders that leak like that.
    I'd save the 40 bucks a month till you can get a real welder.
    Good Luck,
    Bob

But i will admitt the only reason i bought this machine over a miller was the fact that i could pay it off on my snap on account. I just didnt have the cash to buy the miller outright. If you have any other questions just ask.
    That's why I am doing it also it will be put on my snap on account!

    I got my eye on a new Miller, I'll sell you the MM250 with the spool gun. I'll even throw in a bottle of gas and some wire.

    I also have a friend that has a SO mig welder,the first time I saw the drive system I fell on the floor laughing!......what a piece of crap!
    Those machines are made by CK Systematic and unless you have a supply house that stocks tons of old inventory you will have trouble finding parts and they are way over priced.
    Look at SOs website and look at the specs......180 amps at 100% and 230 amps at 60%......Millermatic 252 is 200 amps at 60%.Hmmmm 30 amps for 762.00? pretty pricey too me.
    Last question,how much does the Snappy guy know about welders?
