Unless you're doing body work (welding sheet metal) I'd get a 220 volt 175 amp (or there abouts) mig, cost a little more, but never lacking for heavier welding. I've had mine for 11 years & fabricated & built many things, including building my jeep & a few trailers. I've also done sheet metal, but its a long tedious thing to not burn through cheap sheet metal.
P.S. nice work with the Buell setup, I've done the same.
