  • Millermatic 350P Purchase Questions

    I just sold my transformer 211 to a friend last week and looking to upgrade to a 350P. After doing some research I have a question.

    When welding in regular mig mode will the setup be similar to the 211 (set volts and wire speed) or is it much more complex. I want to learn how to use all the advance features but also want to be able to weld out of the gate.

    The other option is to go with the 252 but I have the funds for the 350P.

      Go with the MM350P if funds allow

      And yes... the setup will be similar to the 211 setting volts and wire speed

      not scary complicated..... here is the manual

        Thanks for the info!!!

        The cheapest place I found one was at IOC at $4,295 which is 120 cheaper than cyberweld.

        The MM350P will go real nice with the 280DX Tig runner package I just picked up. I found a 280DX water cooled package for $4,500 that only has 9 hours weld time on it. It also came with a full bottle.

            You will LOVE the 350P.
            If you can set up the 280DX then you won't have any problem with the setup on the 350P.
            And you wont believe the difference. 400 amps of pulse spray. And in straight mig it is an inverter arc source with adjustable induction that uses like half the amps off of your shop electric to do it.
            And the aluminum capability potential......

              I already have a 350P but almost got another for $1500!!! I friggin missed it by a day or two. Figures though, it was probably hot, even though the redneck didn't seem to know what it was he had. "had it for a few years, light use" there really weren't many hours on it.

              It's super easy to use, not fret about all the advanced features, it's all straight forward. Pulse spray is where it's at! Awesome.

                Going to pull the trigger. Thanks guys!

                Looks like I will be getting it from IOC. Cyberweld will not price match it.

                  Ordered it today. I am a little bit nervous about all the settings but I figured if I was going to put out some major cash on a Mig I might as well setup up to one that has more features than my old one.

                  How is the reliability on the 350P? At $4,300 I am in for the long haul on this Mig.

                      I've had mine for I'm guessing 7.

                      We used it with a whip and a spoolgun for about 5.
                      Then I bought the push-pull.....that changed things a whole bunch.
                      I only regret not buying a Reach Feeder when they were available.
