Which machine should you choose for your home welding shop or welding business? Here’s a comparison of a few features to help you decide.

What Is Similar for the Multimatic 215 and Rebel

Right off the bat, these two machines offer the flexibility to weld with high or low power options. You can easily swap out 120V or 230V power depending on the project. Both also make it a snap to switch between stick, TIG, or MIG, offering a flux core option as well.

Both machines offer similar power, welding capabilities, and ease of use, making it possible to jump right into welding projects as soon as you take the machine out of the box. You’ll find torches and welding supplies in each box so that your additional purchases are minimal if you need a basic welding set up.

Both machines come with a similar Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. However, their prices and deals do change regularly. It's best check the product pages to see what promotions or discounts are currently offered before purchasing. 

What Sets the ESAB Rebel Apart

While the Miller Multimatic has a list of special features, the Rebel combines some of its best offerings in its “smart MIG” (sMIG) feature. As you weld, the Rebel will take note of your particular techniques and tendencies in order to help you maintain a more stable arc and to eliminate potential mistakes. While the Multimatic offers several features that make it easier to start welding, the Rebel focuses on progressively making each welder more effective and efficient over the long term.

The Rebel comes with a durable five handle roll cage and a unibody steel design that makes this portable unit incredibly durable. Combine that with ESAB’s 3-year warranty, and you have a lot of security for your machine.

For welders who need to regularly adjust their settings or who need a little help seeing a welder’s display in a dim shop, the Rebel’s 4.3” color display screen has been overhauled to provide increased pixel density and clarity.
