  • Redesigned 252

    Sooooo, Mr. Miller has redesigned the 141 through 211 Millermatics, anyone have any thoughts on if the 252 is also in line for a redesign? I'd like to upgrade from my 211 to a 252 but I don't need it today and am willing to wait for as much as a year or so if it looks like a 252 redesign is in the works. Thanks.

    There have been 6 major revisions of the MM252....

    They don't always make an announcement when they incorporate substantial improvements,,, they usually just revise the manual...

        small annoyance in the way they introduced the NEW 211

        Same name but completely different machine?

        At least they could have called it "MM211 Plus"

        Anyhoo- always hard to tell the future and if the new version will actually be an improvement worth the added $ because it will definitely NOT be cheaper.

          I could think of quite a few ways to redesign the MM252. There are quirks I don't like but it welds fine and zero problems. But there are things I hate about it. But just my thoughts...Bob

            Redesigned 252

            I was looking at my Crystal ball earlier and asked this exact question. It's said, "BlownC6Z should buy a MM252 immediately." Weird, I know.

              Thanks for your thoughts guys. Lots of pros around here that have close relationships with their LWS, just thought someone might have had a peek at what Miller has behind the curtain.

                  I am in Beaumont, Texas. That's about 90 miles east of Houston.

                  But you can't borrow my crystal ball.

                  Sorry.

                            Yes, the on/off switch is in an out of the way place but once you get used to it, it's not an issue.

                            I bought a 252 last year and it's been a wonderful unit. I like the way that they angled the torch downward so that it's less likely to be damaged. The rest of the machine is just the way it should be for me, anyway. It's a heck of a machine with lots of power to do the heavy jobs.
