Default Miller 210 or Air Liquide 250 mig?

Another what should I buy question, but it's a big purchase for me. The Air Liquide 250 welders are made in France and this one is on sale for $1900 Can. plus a real good deal on a Camealeon mask and tank rental. The Miller 210 I can get for $1700 Can. I need a mig real soon for some light body work but the machine would be used for heavy welding on construction equipment also. I currently use about 30 or 40 lbs of stick rod a year. I know the Miller would do everything I need, but should I pay more to get the extra capacity or go with the best and buy my tank? Signed...not sure.

I don't really know anything abot the 250 machine, but the Miller is a proven
winner.

Air Liquide name alone, would make me run away faster then any frenchman
could!!! :evil:

Well the engine driven liquid aire welders are made by thermadyne. as are most of the static machines that I know of.

Quality is seriously lacking
