MIG welders (again)

I just finished reading the last post about the small MIG welders we see everywhere nowadays.

I'm getting ready to purchase one and I have narrowed my search down to the Miller/Hobart or the Lincoln.

My question is - if I get a 175 can I also use a spool-gun with it? How is a spool-gun wired to the welder? Does Miller and Lincoln make spool-guns for their units?

Thanks, B.E.

Miller and Lincoln both have spool guns available.
For which units they are available for, you will have to consult the sales info for the exact model you wish to purchase.

Available accessories and repair parts in my mind would be as important as duty cycle in selecting a machine.
Within reason, personal budget is what leads to after purchase dissatisfaction with these things.
