      That would be pretty sweet if it is DV!

        Some time ago I answered a questionnaire from Miller about a do-it-all welder. As I remember it was for a 225.
        I answered that I have wanted something like that for years. I said it should be a 250 with a 100% duty cycle.
        In reality 225 with 100% duty cycle would be okay. 250 better.
        I doubt something that size will run on 110 volt. Auto line would be nice.
        Good luck,

          They had an ad in IG, but no specifics except it was a multi purpose with AC TIG

              Of course, but even then reduced performance on 120V still serves some purpose. Just as a 211/215 won't put out full juice on 120V as it will on 240V, they still made if DV for the versatility of it.

                Sounds pretty expensive.

                    Looks sweet, and yes, looks like it's gonna hit the streets running right near $3k!

                      It's just money. Not like you actually use that stuff for anything.

                        Welder wars...Any of you own stock?
                        I recently spent some time reviewing product lines and offerings. Ok... it was Miller and Lincoln product lines. But it was to see what I could and probably couldn't afford actually if I was young dumb and broke, as much to compare Blue and Red.
                        It appears Miller is banking on inverter technologies? Modern electronics...? Not robust power, drop off a truck durability, or simple and proven? But the stuff radios, microwaves and TV's have become? Small packages with lots of buttons and tweaking functions.
                        I looked at the manual for a Multimatic 200. Power source weighs in at 29lbs. The only thing I can say about that is light weight, and the 8" spool probably weighs almost as much as the machine?
                        Someone mentioned a $3 grand price tag? Hmm? Sounds like pretty steep $$$?
                        Now, far be it for me to say what's affordable, but if I was marketing these things, I'd remind myself that as the price increases, the buyers decrease in numbers.

                        Kind of reminds me of how HD sold motorcycles? And why maybe they don't sell as many now?

                          Exactly, I burn it as soon as I get it, lol.

                            It initially seems expensive, but how much would you spend on separate MIG, Stick, and AC/DC TIG machines if you bought them all at once? >$4K?

                              The AC/DC Tig is the selling point for me, if its true.
                              I love the Multimatic 200 in the plastic case but not having AC Tig is the downfall. I also don't care for the Bernard gun as that added some $$$$ over the Mulitmatic 215 with a Miller gun. Just my thoughts...Bob
