  • upgrade my 187 to a 190?

    Can this be done? I just heard of the 190. From what I can read on line, its a 187 with spool gun contols. Can I add these to mine? Or should I try to sell the 187 and buy a 190? Keith

    Sell and buy.

      I suspect it might be possible to modify a Handler 187 into a Handler 190. However, the money and time invested into doing so, would probably make just selling the Handler 187 , and purchasing a Handler 190 or Handler 210 MVP the wiser choice.

        I used a kit from BR Welding. $100 and 20 minutes and my H187 is awaiting a spoolgun.
