    scott,

    You can try it and see. Some machines like the revolving field of a generator and others do not. You might want to contact Miller technical and ask for applications pertaining to the MM210. Phone #
    920-735-4505. I believe you would really be better off with a voltage sensing feeder if you will be doing much mig in the field. The 8VS or 12VS should nicely compliment your Ranger 8.

        Scott,
        The Millermatic 210 runs very well off engine drive machines. We have run it here on a Bobcat so I don't think you'll have any issues off the Ranger.

          Scott,
          I have to agree with Kevin on the MM210 off of your Ranger. I use my MM210 in the field on many occassions{sp}with no troubles other than loading the darn thing on my trailer. I run it off of my Bobcat 225 and have a 30ft. extension cord to add alittle more "reach" I also use the Bobcat too power my Cutmate375 and compressor. I just picked up an Ln-25 to use in place of the MM210 only because I'm getting tired of having to load and unload the 210.Still playing with the Ln-25 trying to find the "sweet spot" so I will be loading and unloading for a short time. Good luck and keep us posted on your welding with the 210/Ranger combination.

            scott,

            The new Lincoln Ranger 250 is quiet as a mouse. When I first demoed the unit I thought the engine was at idle. This is a nice machine with lift start tig, stick, cv for wire feed, 3/16" carbon rods. HOWEVER, IT HAS TOO MANY CONTROLS FOR THE ARC STIFFNESS: HARD TO SOFT AND ALL POINTS BETWEEN. IT IS NOT NEARLY THE MACHINE THE MILLER TRAILBLAZER 301G IS AS THIS IS THE COMPARISON MACHINE LINCOLN USES ON THEIR WEBSITE, but it is quiet.
