Can't speak for the Lincoln, except to say that it costs more. I bought a handler last summer, and the dealer said its essentially same same as the Millermatic (Miller owns Hobart now) except it costs about $100 less. I got the outfit that came with a cart for an extra $20, 'cause I didn't know how long it would take me to get around to building a cart, and I couldn't buy the materials for that much. I don't like the cart very much at all, and cuss it on a regular basis - but then I remind myself, it's only $20.
