Default Anyone test drive the new green HF 140 Mig ?

I see its' $399, and is inverter based.

Has stepless voltage control, inductance control as well.

Digital readouts for voltage and current (or is that wire speed ?)

Metal parts in wire feeder too.

My brother bought one and I would say its a bit the same as the Lincoln here
and very close to weld quality on both flux core and gas
but not much comparable to the price though about the same in price
but has more control functionality on the HF machine
Oh Edit... not all stores have these in store so online purchase is how to get one but you can usually get a better price discount with online coupon code that are not valid in stores as well but those you need to find as well on line not sure where my brother found his but he basically got it for a price that discounted it as if he paid no tax although he did pay tax he said it was a 25% coupon

Although I will say he likes it over the Lincoln as he gave the Lincoln to my other little brother so I am assuming he must of liked it far better

Tangentially to this, are there any of the more mainstream chinesium 110v welders offering pulse mig? Thinking this would be good for doing auto body stuff... But not worth stepping up to a 220 machine at this point.

Miller has a new MM255 coming out, and the I know a guy cost is still ~~$3k (Way better than the cost of the 350P, but still reddamndiculous when an Everlast with pulse half that).

Maybe someone will hack the voltage control (add a small board in there)
and post it on the toob.

IIRC there were aftermarket pulse controllers for other MIG machines.
Maybe arcon/powcon.

although im not 100% sure but Look in to the chinesium Lotus brand I think they make a machine in duel voltage with stich weld or spot weld settings which works good for auto body.....
