I've been looking for a MIG welder I can haul up and down stairs and these
two seem to be the same weight in the same chassis. The 211 can take 120,
which really doesn't seem like something I need, as I'd be installing a
240 volt outlet anyways.
Aside for the slightly higher current and duty cycle rating, is there any
real difference between the two units? Does one have truly beefier parts
inside it, or something truly better than the other? It seems the 211 is a
slightly newer model, but as to whetever or not there are true
improvements over the other is not clear. The price difference is just
over $100 these days which isn't too much.
The other web forums have people asking this question all the time, and
there's never a really good answer other than you can run ther 211 off 120
if you want to.
