  • A few questions about the Bobcat...

    I'm thinking of purchasing a Bobcat 225.
    I'll be stick welding and TIG welding steel and aluminum(up to 1/2")
    Is this a suitable rig for welding this size aluminum?
    What is the apporximate cost of this rig?
    I was quoted just under $3400 for the Trailblazer and was hoping to find a cheaper alternative.
    I guess i'll need a cooling system as well what does one cost for this setup?

      I saw a Bobcat 225 on somebody's website the other day for betweer $2600 and $2700. They used to run them on sale for $2450 not too long ago. Very reliable and good-welding machine. They do not come with any cables, however.

          Trailblazers the way to go if you are Tigging Alum. The Bobcat doesn't have a contactor or remote which makes it a pain in the *** cause the output is hot all the time and you can't control amperage remotely.
