Default Hobart Handler 190 MIG Welder, do you have one?

I'm still toying with the idea of buying a dedicated aluminum welder. This will only be used on my pet projects. What I need is to locate someone with this package "Hobart Handler 190 MIG Welder" with a spool gun. I'd like to try one out before I spend over 1k for a rig and gas bottle. Got one I could look at and try out? (I'm more than willing to pay for use of the machine)

The 190 is a solid machine. Have one in the shop, but no spool gun. Also have a 210 that came with a spool gun, but the gun must have been a dud as I never could get more than boogers out of it. I'd love for these bulletproof migs to croak so I can get the Ironman with spool gun but they just keep on trucking!

I've got the miller 211. I have done a fair amount of projects with it and have no complaints about it. Back when I was in the market I researched the 180 which was an autoset. Had a few people tell me they didn't really like that function. I had used the basic Lincoln for years until I stepped up to the M 211. Very satisfied

OP The Hobart is a fine welder as well
