    Did you get a spool gun or push pull gun with it too? Now doesn't that unit have the "run in" option? I've never used a machine with that option, I hear it is great for aluminum work.

    nice machine! What are your primary uses for it?


    Highest Output in its Class!
    (250 A at 28 VDC). Weld longer on high-end applications.
    Auto Gun Detect™
    Miller's Auto Gun Detect allows operator to simply pull trigger on MIG gun, spool gun or push/pull gun. Automatically detects and recalls the voltage, wire feed speed and timer of the active gun.
    Angled, Dual-Gear Driven, Cast Aluminum Drive System
    Features no-tool, quick-change reversible drive rolls and an easy-to-set, scaled tension knob.
    EZ-Access™ Consumable Compartment and Parameter Chart.
    Set weld parameters right the first time with convenient new flip-down compartment that provides fast access to parameter chart and consumables.
    Large, Digital Front Panel with Built-in Digital Timers Menu
    Enables operator to preset voltage and wire feed speed. Standard run-in, pre/postflow, burnback, spot/delay (stitch) timer menu.
    Push-Pull Gun Direct Connect
    Compatible with Spoolmate 200 Series spool gun with wire feed speed control on the gun. This saves time by reducing trips back to the machine. Also compatible with more industrial Spoolmatic 15A or 30A spool gun.
    EZ-Change™ Low Cylinder Rack
    Allows operators to easily roll cylinders on and off of rack - no need to lift cylinders.
    Larger Work Area
    Now with longer 15-ft M-25 gun.

    NICE! That machine will last a lifetime, then some. Love my 210, but envious of that 252!

    Sure is a learning curve here. I don't have the foggiest idea what any of these terms mean.
    But when I get my welding textbook I ordered, I soon will know enough to be dangerous.

    Nope, didn't get one with the machine, but will have one soon. Yep, it has the run in option. Everyone said it is the top machine for aluminium.

    Mainly lite fab work and repair. Definitely going to get set up for aluminium. I've been using a 90's Hobart beta mig. Great machine, but 90's technology. The old hobart still runs well though, 1/2" is pushing it with that unit. Love the fact that I now have infinite settings with the Miller. Unlike 9 tap settings on the hobart. After welding with industrial welders. I'm not a big fan of the tap machine.

    Mostly for different wire sizes and types. Also an aid for welding aluminium. The settings are factory set for .035 wire. And set to weld steel. Can't be a learning curve! I got her going! That say 's a whole lot!!
