miller 175 mig welder

  1. i found one locally, going to look at it this morning. I dont know much about welders but it sounds like a decent price from what i've seen.
    Supposedly barely used in mint condition, 220 volt, comes with 2 tanks, extra tip, gloves, helmet, wire, and a heavy duty extension cord.

    is it worth $475 if it's as described???

  2. YES, that's a deal. if it's a 185 or bigger, it's a steal.

    A 175 for $475? Yes, I'd jump on that one if it is as described. That's a great shop welder. I have the 210 and that was around $1400. The 175 are not a whole lot let when new so I think you found a deal. Especially with all the other stuff that comes with it.
  4. thanks for the quick replies guys!

    i'm waiting for the guy to call me back, i hope he hasn't sold it yet. If he hasn't (and it's as described) it will be in my workshop by the end of the day.

    thanks again

    I whole heartedly agree that this is quite a find if as described. Negotiate for the cart too, and you have a fantastic deal! Send some pics if you get it.
  6. I didn't mention, but it comes with the cart too!
    If i get it, i will definately post up some pix tonite[​IMG]
  7. Definitely a Steal at that price...[​IMG]
  8. Dang,
    1 phone call too late. The first guy that called this morning bought it. I was the second.
    story of my life, day late-dollar short. Well, they made more than one-i'll just keep looking.

    thanks for your help guys[​IMG]

    that's to bad...what a deal !
  10. Go for it. Then come to my place,I need some welding!LOL
  11. Sorry you missed it. To give you an idea, I bought a 175 factory refurb from tool king about 3 years ago and paid 449 for just the welder. Check out the site and you should be able to come up with a good refurb unit for around that price. You're still going to have to buy the tanks, spares etc though.
