    One of these flush mounted styles would be easy to build and install - just have to make sure it also attaches to the center wall.

    Of course it's no longer needed - the dealer will happily sell you a dynasty to plug into the TB325 LOL

    Gotcha! I didnt understand the half moon cut. I also forgot that the hood opens up at the halfway line, leaving no room.
    I wonder if a drop down bail might work?

    I agree, but the cover opens there too on my mm210, so a half-moon relief cut would also be needed - or it needs to slip down through the slot when not in use.

    Still pretty easy though.

    I still think it would be cheap and easy to have continued including them.

    Just a stingy oversight in my opinion.

    No dice.

    Walker, My current Push pull Cobra 260 mig aluminum mig welder has a lifting lug so we lift it with the bottle on.

    When doing steel I have XMT 304 with a S-22 P12 suitcase feeder that I have to use, However there are times when we need to have 2 migs inside the box so we run our suitcase feeders in off the truck instead of being able to use the Miller Vintage or my new 252.

    I like having it on my MM200 and Sync. It would be a pain to load them otherwise. Whenever I need to weld up high I just use an LN-25. Bit of a pain if you don't already have the right machine to run it from in the shop, but certainly easier to maneuver. Are you using gas when doing this? If so, how are you attaching the bottle?

    The day I bought my MM252 I said this is ridiculous, it needs an eye. As there isn't a good way to install one, I promised myself I'd build a cage. I haven't yet done it. We now load it in a pickup by rolling it into a loader bucket. a lifting eye would be easier, and safer.

    Walker, Many of us have the MM units and dont want the bigger units that have a feeder on top because we have to roll them around in limited space to weld around gravel trains etc. where a fixed rotating boom wouldnt solve the problem, many of us have a hilo or a overhead crane and a lift lug on top would come in very handy, I would certainly pay another $ 50.00 for that option that I had on my old MM 200

    That is why they make feeders and booms. So yes, they do make them, and it cost just a tiny bit more than a few bucks.

    I think a recessed folding lift eye would be awesome

    Or, a cheaper alternative is a fixed lift eye, with a matching half moon cutout in the lid.

    My Dialarc HF-P has one too, it needs one!
