A mig 140 is a bit small. A few $$ more would have gotten you a 240 volt unit. All their 240 units will still run on 120 also.
Remember, a welder is not needed to raise a roof. Your health is bad enough without welding on galvanized steel that can be riveted together.
cutting and welding galvanized steel is fine, especially OUTDOORS.But I'm glad you care so much. I have breathing protection if I REALLY need it. Why you saying I have such bad health? I think my health is doing just fine these days, thanks.
A Hobart 140 is what I wanted. I didn't want a 240v unit. I wanted a smaller, portable welder thats versatile and well supported. I got what I needed, thanks. This unit will weld ANYTHING on a bus that I need to weld and more.
You bolted yours together, I'm welding mine together. I don't wish to have a debate about which is superior, I'm doing what I know is best.
I do agree that dewalt sucks. I won't be buying anything else from them. I hate the bright yellow tools! The Kobalt is less of an eyesore and higher hp by a good bit.
