    I have never used the new inverter 211, but I absolutely love my "old" one. Beautiful welds, and no issues at all. I have run both solid and flux core in it.

    Millermatic 211 questions... Older transformer model

    I just picked up a Millermatic 211 (older transformer version). I was looking at getting the newer 211 inverter but could not pass up the deal on this one. The former owner only used it a couple times and I snagged it for $500.

    Couple questions…

    1. Can I upgrade to a 15 foot gun? I heard the drive system on the older 211’s are not capable to push through a 15 foot gun.
    2. How does the older 211’s stack up to the newer inverter version?
Working...
