Also, being a tapped unit the 210 MVP is fairly simple to get dialed in quickly, so I don't feel I'd want to part with this luxury for the times when I am in a hurry and just want to get a job done quickly.
For me, the Fab 181i or ESAB Caddy 200 is more like a toy that I want to play with for the educational purpose of seeing how changes in the inductance and voltage influence how the unit performs.
If you're going to be more comfortable with a simpler unit, like I was recommending for you in your past thread, it maybe wise to take a small loss on the 181i and sell it. Then purchase yourself a Handler 190 or 210 MVP.
