I never suggested anyone to spend 1500.00..heck..plenty of of 220v Miller and Lincolns and Hobarts well under 1000.00 in the 180-200 amp class.
If i was planning on spending around the 1500.00 mark..i'd be looking for a 250 or more amp class machine..to be capable of running Spray Transfer..
For the hobbiest around the house and vehicle projects..the compact 220v units 180-200 amps are more than enough..
General rule of thumb..never buy a machine you'll run at its max limit all the time,it'll make a short life of the machine for one,,and most important of all..with a more than sufficeint machine,you'll never worry about if the weld was more than sufficeint ...especialy on suspension and frame work that is safety related...
My point is..buy once..be happy..instead of paying 450.00 or more for a 110v,about a 150.00 more get a 220v....instead of 450.00 and have to sell it for a small price later and spend 600.00-700.00 more later on a 220v...
The Op asked if the 220v he was already "planning" on spending money on was sufficeint enough .....not what a 110v machine will and will not do..
