Once you have been following my articles for a while you will know I have strong preference for Miller Welding equipment.
Even though I have this strong preference I still keep my mind opened to other welding machines. One of which is the Lincoln MIG welder 115v. Recently I was asked the question which makes a better MIG welder the Millermatic or the Lincoln electric?
The question got my brain working so I went to do some research. I found a PDF which actually made a comparison of the Millermatic and the Lincoln. The comparison listed the benefits and features of the MIG 180 AMP and the Lincoln 140 AMP. Normally, I don’t pay much attention to this type of advertisements, but this was some pretty impressive stuff. The lincoln Invertec v205t vs. Miller Dynasty 200dx both held their own, so the one you choose you will largely be a matter of preference.
Below are some of the areas in which the Lincoln out performs the Miller in how the machines are constructed.
- In order to provide robust wire feeding the wire drive system is cast in a single aluminum block.
- It provides excellent positive wire traction because of the wire feed drive which is dual gear driven.
- Lots of torque is provided by the large wire feeder motor, the industrial close design makes it much sturdier when compared to cheaper units.
- For excellent ground connectivity brass gun connectors and joined directly to the drive brushing providing a sturdy long-term connection.
- MIG models are shipped with more nozzles, connection tips, flux-cored drive rolls and a spool.
- A conductor strap made of copper is used which provides a stronger electrical connection.
