    The 135 if you want my opinion for the better option.

          Both cover roughly the same out amperage range. The 120 outputs more than 120 amps. The 120 is the more robust build unit. However, if I am remember correctly, purchasing consumables for the gun on the 120 is difficult to impossible. If I am remember correctly some type of conversion kit is needed. The 135 is notorious for certain components on the control board failing.
          MigMaster 250- Smooth arc with a good touch of softness to it. Good weld puddle wetout. Light spatter producer.
