Millermatic 211

This cycle we are featuring MILLER ELECTRIC's Millermatic 211. This unit was designed by MILLER for the Light Industrial market using the MIG and FLUX CORE processes. When operating on 120 VAC you can weld 24 gauge to 3/16 inch steel, or 18 gauge To 3/8 aluminum. On 240 VAC input you can weld 24 gauge to 3/8 inch steel and 18 gauge to 3/8 inch aluminum. The rated output when operating on 120 VAC is 115 Amps 20 % duty cycle. On 240 Volts you can weld at 150 amps at a 40% duty cycle. This is a very easy unit to set up. Just select the wire type, gas used, wire diameter, and metal thickness then start welding. Because the machine uses INVERTER TECHNOLOGY it only weighs 38 pounds. This unit is very forgiving when welding at variations in arc length and travel speeds. The Multi-voltage input connections for 120 and 240 Volts are included to attach to the power cord. The Cooling Fan only operates when needed which not only eliminates noise but reduces the amount of contaminates that are drawn through the machine. There is thermal overload protection that shuts down the machine and activates a temperature overload light. The machine automatically resets when the unit cools down.

The welder can use either the 4 inch or 8 inch spools of wire. Should you choose to weld aluminum with the OPTIONAL, MIG Spool gun there are two available. The Spoolmate 100 recommended for the softer 4043 alloy aluminum wires and the Spoolmate 150 recommended for all the 4000 and 5000 series aluminum wires. When the Spool guns are connected to the Millermatic 211 they automatically detected so it is not necessary to flip a switch when changing over from the standard gun to the Spool gun. The package includes the power source, 6.5 ft. power cord w/ 120 and 240 plugs, 10 ft. standard Mig gun and cable, 10 ft. work cable and clamp, flow gauge and gas hose for Argon/Argon Co2 Mix, spool of .030 steel wire, two .030 contact tips, Drive rolls for solid and flux core wires and a thickness gauge.


Bobcat 200

MILLER ELECTRIC has a new welder called the Bobcat 200 Air Pak. This machine is for the serious portable welder guy that needs the versatility this machine allows. The unit is a 50 to 210 Amp DC Stick welder that will produce 150 Amps at 100% duty cycle and 210 Amps at 20% Duty cycle. In addition, this machine is a 28 cfm at 175 psi. 100% duty cycle continuous air output AIR COMPRESSOR. This is enough air to run most ¾ inch impact wrenches. The unit has a battery Charge/ Crank Assist that will produce up to 100Amps of DC to quickly charge 12 and 24 Volt batteries. The Power Generator will provide 5,500 WATTS of electrical needs from two 120 volt duplex receptacles and one 240 Volt receptacle to power PLASMA cutters or TIG welders. This unit is designed to start in any weather and the engine is powerful enough to use the air compressor with any other feature.
