    Your joking I hope, These machines have 100% duty cycle.
    Perhaps it's Miller who's joking ... they recommend the 652 for spray transfer ... perhaps the low end control on the 652 isn't as fine as the low end on the 452 for short circuit transfer.

      our 652 is set up on a mobile cart, while it is a heavy on a concrete floor it isn't to bad to move, I also ran a 30A spool gun and a suitcase off of it with no complaints. we also have a LN7 hooked up for sub arc while we don't use it much the machine still had no problems with it

        Yeah if the dial is set at the lowest setting. This machine will eat 3/8 carbon arc rod and crap 5/64 wire all day long.

            If your dc600 burned up, probably a transformer primary or secondary, It's not all that difficult for a repair facility to replace a damaged coil, might take 4 hours. Scrs don't blow all that often, only other thing is that the aluminum weld coils tend to break off thier corresponding rails. Have to use a spoolgun to fix, or aluminum stick rod to get the coil back on. Tigging the coil back on is simply a nightmare.
