It depends on what you will be using it for. So figure what you'll be welding the most of and go from there. As many other people on this sight have said (in a nutshell) more welder than you need is always better because you can always turn the juice down on a bigger welder but you can only go so high on a smaller one. But don't get carried away by an over happy salesman!!! Most of my welding is quarter inch wall tube and smaller and I have a Handler 175 and am absolutely in love with it. Good luck C6.
