It would be great to buy a welder with all types of welding, and Lincoln 210 fits the description. Lincoln PowerMIG 210 is strong multi-voltage plug MIG welders with extra Flux-cored welding capacity. The second unit is miller 211, a flux-cored/MIG welder that fits both (120V/240V) input voltages.
Both units are almost the same, but some attributes differentiate them from each other. Know the exact difference between them will make the selection easy.

Lincoln 210 MP Vs Miller 211 Reviews
This Lincoln machine is the best choice for home use as it has a super easy to use display and other great features. The Millermatic 211 is a perfectly produced dual voltage welder to precisely weld aluminium and up to 3/8″ steel. Let’s discover and confront the welders based on all aspect.
Both welders have different Duty Cycle, which shows how much a welder can produce the stated output like a 20% Duty Cycle indicates 90A constant output for 2 minutes with 8 minutes of rest. The duty cycle is an important point that should consider and perfectly identify a unit as a short duty cycle affects productivity. 210mp has a Duty cycle of 120V: 100A/19V/40% and 230V: 200A/24V/25%. ONn the other hand Millermatic 211 comes with 240V: 200A/21.5V/20% and 120V: 100A/19.8V/80%.
Output Amperage Range
Amperage is one of the quality features that allow to weld of a thicker piece of material. But there are some important things to keep in mind that steel material requires a bit higher amperage than aluminium.
210 MP used 120V Input Voltage and came with an output range between 20-140A DC. While using 240V Input Voltage, it came to an output range between 20-220A DC. The second unit provides output within 30-130A on 120V Input Voltage and 30-230A using 230V.
As inverter welders are quite smaller than the transformer matches, the machine’s portability is a more important point for any buyer. But keep in mind that a product’s weight determines many factors like output amperage, build quality, features and size.
Heavyweight machines are also a good choice, but they can be difficult to carry around.
210M model weighs 40lb/18.14KG that makes it easy to transport and not trouble to carry. Millermatic 211 unit weighs 38lb/17.23KG that is more portable than 210Mp.
Material thickness is a key point; there is no purpose in buying a welder who can’t join material. The lowest thickness also matters in some cases but the upper-level material thickness matter more as the high material thickness can weld thinner sheets like auto body panels.
Lincoln 210MP comes with a 210A output that means it can weld 3/16-inch-thick aluminium and 3/8-inch-thick steel and stainless. And the product miller 211 join 18 ga.–1/8 in. aluminium at 120V input voltage and 24 ga.–3/16 in. steel in one pass.
It can perfectly weld 18 ga.–3/8 in. aluminium in one pass and 24 ga.–3/8 in. steel while using 240V Input Voltage.
No brand can give confidence to their buyer without providing a long warranty. Lincoln 210 offers a three-year warranty for welding machine and a one-year warranty for its accessories such as flux, wire and gas flow regulators.
Miller Millermatic 211 left all the brand in the industry due to its warranty page. It offers a 3-year warranty on inverter machines and one year on accessories.

After reading the complete article, the points are clear: which product is best, what they can deliver, and what to select dor which purpose. Yes, it all depends on the buyer need and the project’s requirement. Both products are the best options in the industry that compete in many other welding units by the side to side. Lincoln performs great as it is portable and perform multiple welding task. Make a valuable decision and share it in the comment box, and share why should choose that one so that other readers can found some help.
It’s been years since I got into welding as a side hustle. It’s been so long since Doing All kinds of welds for business and pleasure as this is my hobby. Being in this field I have learned from hands-on-experience also came to know what gears work and what doesn’t. The Tig Welder is my own platform where I use to share my experience.
