    Power for the MM350P is no big deal..

    it only needs 61 Amps @ 230 vac Single Phase for full output of 400 amps

    The 350P is very nice and does an exceptional job on aluminum with the pulse setting.

    Millermatic 350 P

    I have had a Millermatic 350P for several years now and it has been up to whatever I asked of it...
    The MM350P is a 400amp machine and is an exceptionally capable and versatile MIG machine..
    for aluminum as well as steel..

    Would I spend the extra on it if I had it to do over ..??

    YOU BET...!!! In a Heartbeat..!!...

    It was well worth it for me... but we all have different needs, priorities and budgets...

    Which Mig welder is right for me?

    I have the Miller Synrowave 250DX with a Coolmate 3 now. I'm looking to upgrade and get a mig machine. My only thing is I see 3 of them that I'm interested in. The three that I'm interested in are 212, 252, and the 350. With the prices ranging from $2000-$5000 I might need to figure out if the extra expense of the 350 is worth it. Also with that being said is the 212 big enough for what I need? I already have a hobart 135 basicly the same as the 140. I need to be able to do 38/-1/2steel and probably 1/4 aluminum but you guys know how it goes sometimes you have something thicker that needs to be done!!!
