        Definitely had to enter to possibly win one. May have to have a serious consideration about buying one to keep in the welding rig when they hit the market! Can't wait to see all the specs. Glad I never pulled the trigger on buying one of the ESAB Rebels.

          I saw one in action a month ago. It was impressive even on 115v. They are on sale right now cheaper than the Multimatic 200...Bob

            You saw an esab rebel in action or the multimatic 215 in action?<br />
            <br />
            And what's wrong with the esab rebel? I'm not being critical, I'm honestly curious....other than its probably made in China. <br />
            <br />
            Where is the new 215 made, Bob? My maxstar was made I Austria, or so says the back of the machine. So I recon not all Miller machines are made in Wisconsin. <br />
            <br />
            Last question for you, Bob...is the 215 geared towards the hobby welder like the Lincoln tig200 is?

              Hi ryanjones2150,

              All Miller Electric welding and Plasma cutting machines sold in North America and Mexico are designed and manufactured in Appleton, Wis., USA, though some components must be sourced from other countries, and we do have some factories overseas that only manufacture for their local markets.

              Let us know if you have any further questions. Thanks!

                So my maxstar 150 came from Europe for the European market? Cool, I think. It's an immigrant working for the American Dream! <br />
                <br />
                Does that mean it doesn't like the 60hz power we have here?

                  I haven't heard a single thing wrong with the Rebel.....yet. It's all been positive. But, I'd much rather keep the all blue theme in my shop. Something yellow would seriously stand out, and I'd never hear the end of it. Haha

                    If you send us a message with the serial number, photos of your machine and information about where you purchased it, etc., we'll look into this and do some digging. Thanks, ryanjones2150!

                      If I recall correctly... the very first Maxstars were built by Fronius in Austria.... But that was maybe 17-20 yrs ago... maybe yours is one of those..??

                      All of our macines are made here in the good USA. A couple years ago we did have a partnership with Fronius that was desolved because of reliability issues and support. We feel we can make our products better here. The only units still made over the pond are welders for the European market. These welders are ONLY sold over there and anything for our US market is built here......

                        Well by golly. I'll have to see what year mine is made when I get back home. It's still a good machine and I really like it. Miller branded fronius or not, I haven't had any problems with it and I hope it stays that way.
