    need to buy a mig

    this is a question that my bro(satansfriend--2) wants answered. he's off playing video games so he asked me to ask it for him. so, is the hobart handler 125 mig/fluxcore a good machine for the price it is? he would want a better one that could weld alum, but cant afford it, heck, the 125 is even over his price limit. also, does anyone know any cheaper migs that have some of the same features? thanx.

    The HH 125 is limited to Fluxcore unless you buy the gas kit. For a higher and lower range and ability to use gas out-of-the-box the HH 140 would be the better buy. I have a HH 135 and will be trying aluminum just for the fun of it. Specs say it can do 1/8" thick aluminum. If it can/can't thats fine. I get to use a MM 251 running aluminum at work all day anyway
