Question Mig welder suggestions

I've finally decided to take the plunge and buy a mig. I'm leaning heavily towards Hobart's 135 Handler. It's a 115 volt unit and puts out up to 135 amp, for 'bout $650 Canadian plus 15% tax. I know everybody is probably going to say that the 230 volt units are better, but I really like the idea of being able to plug it in virtually anywhere. If the metals beyond the posted 3/16" max (single pass), I also have a trusty old Lincoln stick welder. Does anybody have any comments on the quality of the Hobart or similar migs. There seems to be an awful lot of plastic inside all of the migs I've looked at.
