  • Cart for Millermatic 211 or Multimatic 215

    First off looks to me like Millermatic 211 or Multimatic 215 have the same case dimensions.

    Looks like Norther Tool has a nice cart called Klutch 2-Tier (picture from one of the reviews shown) after shipping it would cost around $100,

    I like the idea of two tiers and the cabinet although I don't need a lock on the lower cabinet, I will add a miller plasma 375 cutter on the cart. But i am still looking fro recommendations and advise.

    I would plan to mostly just wheel it around my shop but also maybe carry it in my pickup truck with cap for some possible odd jobs or emergency work.

    P Lease advise, your thoughts and experience this cart or any others you may know of, course there is the Miller one too @ $180 ?

    Build it. It's not a piano, and it'll be fun. You can make it exactly how you want it. Plus you'll need a place for two welding gas cylinders. If you're MIG welding, you're going to need C25. For tig you will need 100% argon. Doesn't look like either of those carts has a place for two bottles.

      I bought the one in the top picture.
      It works great for my shop usage , as I've retired from mobile welding.

      I don't need space for duel tanks as I don't have the tig setup, at least not right now.

        I can tell you for a fact that the cheap ones like Harbor Fright sell, the top tray isn't wide enough. It's about 3/8 too narrow. I bought one for my HH175 to sell with it and the 215 wouldn't fit

          Well , the one I bought fits fine.
          As far as Habour freight , I have No idea what that is, No such place in Canada, that I know of.

          I bought mine at Praxair.

                I have one question, that maybe Miller Kevin can answer- I saw in another thread about the new MM 211, where the person asked about using a 15ft. whip on it.

                He said the cut off for the newer drive motor was ME031070N. ( Which will handle the 15ft. whip )

                Can the new MM 215 Ser. # MG491523N - handle a 15ft. whip ?

                    My Multimatic 215 owner's manual doesn't show anything about upgrading to a 15' whip.

                    However, the 211 does show the option as being available.

                    You'd have to look for your machine's manual through the Miller website to see if there is any revision to the manual that lists a 15' whip as an option to be 100% sure.

                      If you look in the parts manual it's listed. M-150 15 ft gun P/N 249041. It's under the optional parts

                          I bought a new Prostar ( Bernard ) 15ft. - 250 amp. mig gun & whip.
                          Tried today & it works great, no feeding problems at all.

                          I was trying different settings on the MM 215 as well.

                          - On lower volt settings , the WFS. is fine using the auto settings.
                          - On the higher volt settings , the WFS. is off ( Too Slow ) for my liking.

                          The power on the higher volt settings, is incredible for such a small welder. ( 38 lbs. ) total weight .
                          I have not tried stick or tig yet.

                          To say I'm pleased, would be an " Understatement "

                          More to come , as I try the other processes .
