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

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

HOW CAN I WELD GMAW?
WHAT DO I NEED TO WELD GMAW?
CAN I CONNECT THIS 12VS IN A LINCOLN DC 600? & HOW?
By Customer Service on March 18, 2014
Answer:The Miller SuitCase X-TREME 12VS Wire Feeder 951543 requires a CV power source for best operation.You can use the Lincoln machine however I believe that this is a CC power source. The 12 VS has a switch which will allow the use of a CC power source. However it will not operate as well on CC as it will on CV..If you plan on using a shielding gas you will also need to have a flow meter regulator , a connecting hose and a cylinder of gas..
By TREY from TENAHA TX on May 27, 2014

By Customer Service on May 28, 2014
Answer:The Miller SuitCase X-TREME 12VS Wire Feeder 951543 comes with a Bernard Q-300 mig gun which is is used with shielding gas.. If you already have the feeder than you would need to order the Bernard MIG Gun - 300 amp Q-Gun Q3015AE8XM

By Earl from Holly, Mi. on July 20, 2014
How well will the 12VS wire feeder work on constant-current, and dose the wire feed speed very much when running on constant-current. Also would a 350 Syncrowave run a 12VS, and how good would it do.
By Customer Service on July 21, 2014
Answer:The Miller SuitCase X-TREME 12VS Wire Feeder 951543will operate well on Constant Current CC.. It will run flux cored wire better than solid wire when using CC but it will run the solid wire.. Because of the design of most tig welders including the Syncrowave 350 Miller does not recommend running the 12VS feeder off of these models
By Melvin from Ringgold, ga on April 10, 2015
Can you use a gas driven stick welder to run the feeder
By Customer Service on April 13, 2015
Answer:The Miller SuitCase X-TREME 12VS Wire Feeder 951543 can be run off of a gas driven stick welder (the bigger the better). The CC/CV switch on the 12VS will have to be set in the CC position.The unit will not weld well on thin material.
