I am wanting the ability to add wire welding to my Trailblazer engine drive. My question is how does the gas delivery work with the suitcase type wire feeders. i.e. do you take the bottle with you? For my purposes perhaps a Passport Plus is better with everything self contained? Obviously the 12VS will do a lot heavier welding, but what are the other tradeoffs?
By Customer Service on December 17, 2012
Answer:The Miller SuitCase X-TREME 12VS Wire Feeder 951184 or the Miller 8VS, 8RC or 12RC can be used with your trailblazer.. If you are going to running a a wire that requires a shielding gas you will need to have a cylinder of gas plus a flow regulator and hose to connect to the feeder.. The Miller Passport is a unique machine has a small built in co2 cylinder that can provide 25 minutes of welding or approx 25 ft of weld on 3/16" thick steel when using .030 wire..This makes the machine very portable( It is great for situations where you may need to be working on a roof ) On the downside it is a light duty machine that has a max thickness capability of 3/8"on steel and as you can see that when you are welding off the internal cylinder the amount of welding you can do will be limited..(You can also us a standard cylinder with the Passport.) The 12VS , 8VS,8RC, or 12RC feeders welding capabilites will only be limited by the output of your trailblazer

Does it have pulse mig feature on it, or will it simply work with a mig pulse machine
By Customer Service on December 3, 2013
Answer:The Miller SuitCase X-TREME 12VS Wire Feeder 951543 does not have a pulse feature.. You can run the 12VS off of a machine(such as an XMT mpa) that has the pulse feature and you could pulse weld with it

Does this come with the oxo style q300 that is shown?
By Customer Service on November 12, 2013
Answer:The photo of the Miller SuitCase X-TREME 12VS Wire Feeder 951543 is a generic photo. In this case it is shown with a Miller Roughneck Gun which does use the Oxo style handle.. The 12VS 951543 package comes with a Bernard Q-300 gun as standard equipment. Here is a photo of the Bernard Q 300

I am using .035 wire with argon gas hooked to a pipe pro welder. Will I need anything else to make this machine work?
By Customer Service on April 11, 2013
Answer:The Miller SuitCase X-TREME 12VS Wire Feeder 951543 comes with a Bernard Q300 mig gun plus .045 and .052 drive rolls.. You will need to order some .035 drive rolls.. You didn't indicate whether you are using solid or flux cored wire.. For solid wire you will need part# 087131 and for 079606 for flux cored wire.You didn't mention whether you had a flow regulator and hose for the shielding gas.. If you don't you may want to consider one of these..http://store.cyberweld.com/smflfl.html..You will also need some .035 contact tips part # T.035
