For welders and fabricators looking for a powerful and durable MIG welding machine that is easy to set up, use, and clean up, the Millermatic 252 from Miller Electric is worth a long look. In fact, a savings of nearly $700 (as of this writing) at Baker’s Gas and Welding on the Millermatic 252 isn’t necessarily the best reason to upgrade from a model like the Millermatic 211.
The Millermatic 252 is among the highest outputs in its class of welders, offering 250A at 28VDC so that welders can work longer on larger, high-end applications. If you’re routinely welding large pieces of metal for long periods of time or you need a heavy-duty machine that can take the punishment of a busy shop, the Millermatic 252 should be one of your top choices. Right now the Millermatic 252 is on a Baker's Bonus! That means you can take advantage of our great sale price plus which is $100 off at check out. Call us or message us if you have any questions about the machine.
The 252 features Auto-Gun Detect for MIG Welding. Entering your settings from scratch every time you start welding isn’t an issue with the Millermatic 252. With the auto-gun detect feature, your MIG gun, spool gun, or push-pull gun can automatically remember your last settings. That includes your voltage, wire speed, and timer of your gun. When you’re working on a large project or repeat what you’re working on throughout the day, this feature can save a lot of time setting up your machine.
Angled Wire Drive for MIG Guns
Welders who need to pump a lot of wire into their welds each day need a reliable and sturdy setup that ensures they can weld effectively without the costly delays of jams or machine breakdowns. The Millermatic 252 offers an industrial aluminum dual-gear drive system that feeds wire effectively and efficiently without downtime. You can store drive rolls right on the machine so that you can easily swap them out and get back to work.
This angled aluminum dual-gear drive system is sturdy and durable for busy shops. Your MIG gun and liner won’t suffer from the bumps and bends that are more common with typical MIG welding machines.
Smooth and Clean Arc
A stable arc is one of the best features on a Miller MIG welder, and the 252 is no exception. With the 252’s Active Arc Stabilizer, welders will make cleaner welds and experience better weld starts.
The Line Voltage Compensation feature keeps power constant up to variations of 10%, adding to the stability of the welding arc when working with uncertain power sources.
Digital Front Panel
Whether modifying your voltage or setting up a timer, the Millermatic 252 has a fully digital front menu so that you can precisely adjust your wire feed speed or voltage. You’ll also find standard run-in, pre/postflow, burnback, and spot/delay options.
Consumable and Chart Access
Also in the Millermatic 252 is a parameter chart that makes it easy to set up your welding parameters as you get to work. A flip down compartment also provides a convenient place to store consumables.
How Does Lincoln Compare?
The Lincoln Power MIG 256 is one of the closest competitors to the Millermatic 252. Perhaps welders will first notice that Lincoln’s machine is significantly less expensive, although that price difference nearly vanishes with Baker’s promotion on the Millermatic 252. In addition, welders will notice that Power MIG 256 nearly matches the output of the Millermatic 252. Both machines are also built with sturdy parts and are set up to max out the durability of your machine and the spool guns used.
So if price and power aren’t major factors, what are the major differences? While every welder has preferences about features, welders may benefit most from the Millermatic 252’s time-saving features. The auto-detect and arc stabilizing features make it possible to set up your welder faster and to minimize clean up when you’re done.
