the 211 auto set was gone in less than 24hrs for 1400 that was a deal.

these Millers don't come cheap often. they are the top of the line, but new they are 3K or more. you don't have to have a 200 series either 175 or better will do what we need.
Hobart makes decent machines too from what i've been told. Lincolns from FB i don't trust anymore , there are to many 180"s being sold off the refurbished list for my liking....there should be that many machines making it to the refurbished list IMO.

that 211 was what prompted me to hit you up.it was a steal @ 1400....most of the rest of these i have marked to see if the price drops. the 1 in akron the big 250 i'd message them and be sure that runs on 220V and that'd be what id wanna see..... for 1K that's a steal, that's pretty much the last step b4 industrial welders.

It's insane how much these have gone up in price! I bought a new 211 back in 02/21 for under $1300. At the same time I picked up a Spoolmate 150 for around $400. I've yet to use the spoolmate, but plan on doing so once I get around to getting another tank and gas.

Keep your eyes open for a Millermatic 190, you can save a bunch of coin and get a great machine, they are 240 v only and the predecessor to the 211.

I’ve got a Millermatic 211 autoset they are also multi voltage plug so 220 and 120 just by changing plugs it’s a great welder. The local shop here says miller and Hobart are made on the same line just not as good of drive system.
