Miller, Lincoln are you kidding?
I am in the market for a TIG/Stick machine and considering an Everlast Powertig 250 EX. I am finding it very difficult if not choking, to part with $3000.00 for a Miller Dynasty 200DX,(just the machine). I use Miller Maxstar's and Lincoln Invertech's on the job running pipe all day long with 5P+ and 7018 rod. I own a Miller Trailblazer and Lincoln 250 mig machine.... the performance is very good, but I have had it with the cost of their (Blue, Red, Yellow) new equipment pricing.
Inverter technology has come a very long way and the price has come way down for inverters & frequency drives but, the price decrease has not been reflected in their product pricing. Because of the obnoxious pricing of domestic machines I am going to order an Everlast Powertig 250 EX. Let the games begin!
