  • Dynasty 700

    I did a short search yesterday and found virtually nothing on this machine on the discussion forums.
    I purchased one of these machines a couple of days ago. All I have so far is the power source. It was a demo unit and slightly damaged by the freight company. I got it as new with full warranty. It is a 2006 model.
    I did a download of the owners manual and found it has the multiple waveforms like my 200...woohoo!!! I wasn't sure if that would be the case.
    The machine was tried out by a local factory and they did not like using it. mainly because of a GIANT torch it had on it. They said it was like welding with a clawhammer.
    I got absolutely nothing with this machine...no connectors or torches, not even the power cord!! So it will take me awhile to get this thing up and running.
    I noticed Number One and Bodybagger have 700's in their signatures.
    BTW I got this machine at such a righteous price, I swear you guys would not believe it. I would have loved to have bought a used Dyn 300 or a 350 but I got this for less or around what most people would have given for those! (used) It was a matter of having an LWS manager who really does like me and helping me out Many thanks to him!!!!!
    Because it is so nice, I plan to just sell my Airco setup complete and put together a whole different system for this machine.
    If you have any input on this machine I am all ears because I want to know everything I can about it
    I started a thread on it yesterday during lunch and titled it "adopted refuge"...I meant REFUGEE. I also included a pic as well. Photobucket is down for maint right now and I need to get to work!!

    Hey FK,

    Awesome machine. Sounds like you got the deal of all deals.

    We'll all be waiting for an evaluation of the unit.

      FK,

      Sounds like you done good!

      Heck, I can relate some of my first practice coupons look like I welded them with a 32 oz claw hammer, at least now they are looking like I traded up to a tack hammer

        congrats. That is one heck of a machine. I recently bought a new Dynasty 350
        Complete and it was lot's of money.

        There was not way I could have ever afforded the 700 so you done great.


        The power requirements for that Big boy is huge but if you have an older machine it's probably a direct hook up.

        Very Nice indeed!!!!

          Oh there is NO WAY I could have afforded this thing. Or even a 350 even tho I need a 350 for all the different stuff I am doing nowadays.
          It takes the same amps as the old Airco. I will more than likely never max this machine altho I have the Airco a few times on thick molds. I have not done them in quite awhile.
          I want it to do the bump welding on t-tops and swim platforms and such. And also just to generally have a Heavier welder with similar capabilities as my little 200DX. I love the way the Airco welds and everyone who worked for me prefers it but they never really get into it like I do.
          I has been crazy busy for me lately and it is very frustrating already to have to look at that thing just sitting there and not being able to use it.
          I do want to get a torch and hose set-up that is better than the one I am now using. I want the rubber hose not those plastic POS's that have the little ferrel doohickie that always ends up dripping when I run really bigamps or tug one time. 50 ft minimum also...boats are just too long to settle for anything else.
          And I gotta get the 3.5 coolmate I guess. Anything less makes little sense when that one looks integral. And I probably will even MAKE a cart for this one as well.

            Did ya use a gun a mask to get that price or what
            Good to hear though. I was going to ask what would anyone need a 700 amp tig for other then big thick pieces of aluminum. and there you go welding on boats.

              Dang FK,

              Didn't know they had boats in MO that were large enough to need a 700.

              Out here on the coast, we call them ships.

              Never spent much time out that way. Did go to Ft. Leonard Wood for AIT (Advanced Individual Training) back in '67. Figured that was enough. Cold as heck at night, hot as heck in the daytime.

              Funny story. Had a big fat guy in our class. Sucker could sleep through 9/11 and to make matters worse, he snored so bad the windows rattled. One night a bunch of us guys (about 6), tied that sucker to his bunk with tent ropes, picked up his bunk, and carted the whole shebang down the hill to the PT field where we planted him on the PT stand. Finally woke up about 5 AM in the morning. Woke the whole training battalion up with his screaming.

              Slept a little "lighter" after that.

                Today was kinda strange...I had to weld a piece of 2" sch. 40 to a 1 inch plate....which is exactly what Miller rates the 700 for!!
                I thought sheesh and rolled out the 350P. There was no pulse setting for even 1/2" with 5356. Had to go with GMAW and it welded it like butter. BTW it was on a work barge
                But I was thinking about what it would'a been like with the big tig on that.
                REAL THICK gloves!!! And I wouldn't know what kind of consumables!! Bottom line I actually don't want to have to weld anything that thick with a tig welder. But I would enjoy seeing pics of tig welding done on the extreme edge of the 700's capability. I'm guessing some automated applications or something like that....not in my league.

                  700 Amp TIG torch?

                  Just out of curiosity, where do you find a TIG torch rated for that Dynasty 700? I also have heard little about the Dynasty 700; what a beast! Wonder what you CAN'T do with it?

                    We absolutely LOVE our Dynasty 700. It replaced an OLD Miller Synchrowave 500 that was on it's last leg.

                    We paid 11k for the complete tig runner package, which is a chunk of change I'll admit. But when asked by or LWS how we liked it, I told them if they offered me double what we paid for it, I still wouldn't give it up.

                    One problem though. There's one 700 and two of us welders. We fight over who gets to use it and when.....

                    I see another 700 in our future.

                    Edit: The torch that came with it is very nice, I think it's a Weldcraft 18SP, which is different from our other 18 series torches. Different diffusers, cups etc. Physically it's the same size, so we have no complaints. We've run ours up to 400 amps so far on thick steel and aluminum.....it did not disappoint.

                      You'd be surprised. A really big chunk of aluminum can suck up some amps.
                      That's why when my company asked what kind of welder we needed for the machine shop for mold repair I told them a Syncro 350 or Dynasty 350 they bought an Econo tig Go figure. Then they wanted me to fix an aluminum mold. What a joke.

                        kcstott,

                        Yea. Know what you're talking about with heat and aluminum.

                        Sounds like your company bought you a swiss army knife to take to a gunfight.

                        I've run a Sync 350 pretty hot. Can't imagine having 700A available for tig. I'd probably melt my shield if I got as close as I normally do when tig welding.

                        Like they always say though, "you can always turn the big one down, can't turn the little one up". "Can't use amps you didn't buy".

                        FK,

                        Get that dang thing fired up and melt some metal. We're all waiting for the evaluation. Again, sweeeeet deal.

                          Yeah when we would take the big molds to the welder I'd watch the read out on the machine. In DC he was pushing 350+ amps and in AC it was close to 400 sometimes. But yeah 700 amps I can only reason that it would allow you to weld at 400 amps all day long, high duty cycle
                          when I replace my Syncrowave 200 it will be a Dynasty 350 or a Sync 250
                          The only problem with an Syncrowave is 98 amp @ 230 volts where the Dynasty 350 is 28 amps @ 230 and twice the cost.
