  • Cover's for welder's

    I have recently purchased a Miller 210 w/dual tanks and a Miller 625 Plasma Cutter. My question being is where can I purchase some cover's for these welder's & plasma cutter's to protect my machines?

    Is there an estimated cost?

    You can get dandy covers at your local Miller dealer. They are nice blue canvas with Miller logos on them.

    For the MM210 the part # is 195142, this one also comes with a helmet bag to store your quick change helmet in and the list price is $105.00

    For the Spectrum 625 the part # is 195145, and the list price is $45.00

    These covers will fit your machines nicely and help keep them looking like new for a long time to come...

      Thanks KLSM54

      Thanks for the quick response. I will call them on Monday. Those prices are very reasonable.

        You think $105 for a blue tarp cover is very reasonable???? I think it is extremely high! I can go down to H.D. and buy a cooler cover for $25. Granted the cooler cover is not blue with a big name on the side. I like my miller products but I don't think that just a name is worth the extra $75.
        This looks to be a hidden ad for Miller products. Not that I am against Miller advertising on thier sponsered web site, but don't hide it in posts! I mean come on, If you just bought two big ticket items from a Miller dealer don't you think that just maybe they might have a cover for them????
        Sorry for the rant.

          I am sorry Walker

          I am sorry that you feel that the price of $105.00 for a cover is too high or $45.00 is also too high. If you take a look at my website at www.affordabletow.com you will see that I am not a miller distributor or dealer.

          I am a towing facility that tows all types of vehicles in Honolulu, HI. When you consider my cheapest equipment costs me $65,000 for a new light duty truck and my Super Heavy Duty cost me $250,000 you will see where the analogy that I used of the cover's being cheap or even inexpensive comes in.

            WOW! you own that company? nice...if you dont mind tell me..how long have you had/owned this company? nice equipments! expensive equipments to be exact! hahaha!

            I actually want to get a cover for my welding machine...but mine is a hobart! same company, but different name and color

            I did notice though that the hobart covers cost more than the miller ones for the HH180 vs the MM175? why is that? hehe..

              Cover for Hobart

              Sorry I don't know where to get there cover's at. I find that odd that if the same company makes the same machine why the cover would be at a different cost.

              I have been in the towing industry for 20 years and have owned this company for the last 11 years.

                Oh, you can get both miller and hobart covers at www.cyberweld.com! the cost of the hobats is $40usd and the millers are $30...weird if you ask me! hahaha..maybe its a bit bigger (hobarts) so more material needed?

                wow..20 years in the towing business! and you have been running this towing company for 11 years! kool..im still a kid, so I dont own a business! hehehe

                  cover size

                  cover's are the same size just caust more for hobart i think it has to do with weather the company is willing to give a discount for a large order . thats how the web sites can sell miller welders for less than they sell hobart almost any welding site will sell you covers for bolth miller and hobart .here are some

                  http://www.andale.com/sfSearchServlet

                  http://www.brwelder.com/indextemplat...op/Results.cfm

                  miller makes some realy nice covers for there welders and cutters i have bolth and got miller covers for bolth.
                  as for the price being too high i dont think that spending $90.00 to cover a mm210 and helmit is too much it is a fine quality cover you will be proud to put on your new machine. brwelder.com has it for $90.00 but if you wish to put a cooler cover over your's thats ok with me but i think the time you spend trying to get that funny cover to sit right on youre welder would add up after time making it not worth the truble (time is money)you bought a miller welder because you wanted and understood quality so why skimp on its cover they too are good quality covers made to fit youre welders


                  wow that got a little long sorry
                  hope this helps

                      Geesh!!... ...I didn't mean to start a battle here. I do not work for Miller or ITW, and never have. I sell many different brands of welding equipment and am not on commission, so have nothing to gain from what anybody buys, here or elsewhere. I have worked for a distributor for 20 years, and personally, think that the Miller covers are a great deal. I have a thing about doing things right, and to me, an ill fitting cover is not what I would want in my shop. But, to each his own I guess.

                      I have seen people that take excellent care of their welding equipment that use all sorts of things for covers, towels, throw rugs, tarps, etc. I have even seen some custom made covers, which I am sure cost more than the Miller covers do. One thing is certain, if you brought those two pieces of equipment into my store, to trade them in, 5 years from now, you would probably get back that $120.00 and then some on added value because the machines are in such great shape.

                      Apparently not everyone feels as you dowalker, since most of the people I deal with never think that a cover is over priced. The most popular covers we sell are for Bobcats and Trailblazers, with the Millermatic 210 and 251 being next most popular. It is not un-common to sell one for Big Blue or Air Pak either. To suggest that either Miller, or the dealer, GIVE a cover away on the purchase of 2 machines like a Millermatic 210 and Spectrum 625 is ridiculous, unless of course you paid list price for the machines.

                      Letsplay2, That looks like a first class operation you run there, hope you are happy with your new "toys".

                        Another thing that enters the picture is economy of scale. Home Depot may expect to sell more cooler covers than Miller does welder covers. Also the quality of material and features enter in to the pricing.

                            After reading over my initial post I must say I may have been a little harsh, my bad, Sorry to all. I do think the covers are a little high in price, especially for Arizona where a cover will only make it one to two seasons. That is $105 a year to cover your rig. Multiply that times the number of machines you have and you can see that it is not cheap. I would certainly like to keep my machines in blue covers, but... What I have found is that it is substatially cheaper to buy canvas in bulk, and have an upholsterer put in four seams and a hem. The up side to canvas is that it is light in color and lasts a little longer. It does not say Miller on the side though.
                            Again I did not mean to start a big todo.

                              Walker, Why do the covers only last a year or two? Does your machine sit in the sun?
