                          Follow up

                          Well, long story here, but maybe help someone else out with this experience.

                          As some of you said, buy something besides the Wildcat (for cost reasons). I tried a Generac 8000 XP generator from Lowes. Before I bought it, I asked if I could return it if it would not work out. I really must speak highly of Lowes no hassle return policy, for I took that noisy little beast back after burning a 5/32 7018 at 200 amps with my Dynasty 200 DX. The poor little Generac barely did it without running so low it almost stalled. Back it went.

                          I ended up buying a Hobart Champion 10000. It runs all the tools (compressor, Powermax 30 plasma cutter, Dynasty 200, and all the usual stuff). The Hobart was a recon from toolking. So I saved a bit on that. In the past week I also bought an XMT 304 cc/cv and a 30a spoolgun w/24 adapter. What a sweet machine! Got things pretty well covered with that setup.

                          Anyway, I just wanted to follow up on this old thread. With the XMT, spoolgun and adapter, and the Hobart Champion, I am just over the cost of a new Trailblazer.

                          Thanks for the input guys!

                            Will the Bobcats ground be a correct ground for this? Being on wheels, how does that work anyway?

                            Seems related, hope not to hijack!!!
                            There is an adapter cord #300517 that connects the Bobcat/Trailblazers full KVA receptacle to the Dynasty's plug

                              I wish I would have chimed in earlier, I could have saved you the trip to Lowes. There is quite a big difference between "commercial" generators and industrial generators. Miller generators are industrial. They have a stiff voltage, are rated at 104 F, and have a usable peak power. None of the commercial generators have any of these attributes. Plus Miller's are Made in Appleton, WI, USA vs. China.

                              I'm glad you ended up with something that you like.

                              For future reference, the Wildcat would have no problems with the Dynasty 200 and the Wildcat is a pretty good machine for the money. Also, the Hobart Champs are not made by Miller, however, they are made by our sister company Hobart in Troy, OH and are pretty good machines as well.
                              Have a great day!

                                Question for Miller John

                                The Hobart Champion 10000 that I just got says made by Miller Electric on the front cover. Why is that? It even goes as far as showing the address!

                                Also, once the XMT became available (to me), it was obvious the Wildcat was out!

                                I read about someone using a Generac 8000 XP to run a Dynasty 300 on a different thread. I thought it just might work, but became clear as day that it would not over the long haul! Also, I bought the Generac BECAUSE it said Made In USA. I work hard looking for tools (and everything else) made in USA, but it just gets harder everyday...

                                I appreciate the quality of the Miller brand. Top-notch all the way!
