    whatter,

    The DX is basically your pulse function package. It allows you to set up peak and background amperage, pulses per second, ramp up time, hold time, and slope down time. Without the pulse feature thin, thin metal will be tougher to do and maybe not weldable at all in some cases.

    The DX is only $200 more than the SD. If you don't get the DX, I believe you will regret it as your skills improve. If you are going to spring for the Dynasty 200, get the DX for sure! I like the foot pedal in a shop enviroment because it is easier to learn to use. For mobile work the hand control is very nice. Either control is fine. Other than the mobility thing it is personal preference. Both controls are obviously mobile. The foot pedal can be difficult to find a place to set up on the road. The hand contol is attached to your torch. You may want to mail Flat-out. He is learning to use the hand control. I am not sure he is having good luck with it.

    Dynasty Amperage

    Hawk,

    Thanks again for the information. The more I look around the more I seem to come back to the Dynasty. I guess the big decision is between the DX and the SD. Does the average hobby guy really need the extra features of the DX over the SD? Also if all you are going to do is Tig with the machine, which kit should you buy with it?

    Thanks again,
    W. Hatter

    whatter,

    Push the Dynasty 200 DX to the max and I doubt you will draw more than 30 amps give or take 3 amps. I run mine on a 30 amp breaker with a 30 amp twist lock wall receptacle wired back to the 30 amp breaker in my 200 amp main with #10 wire on an 18" run. I use a 75' 12 gauge extension cord and have never had the first problem-not even a warm wire after 5 hard hours if tig. The fan runs a lot, but that's normal because I push the D200Dx hard!

    Stay away from the Econo-Tig. The Dynasty is 100 times the machine. I would pick the Dynasty series over anything in the MIller tig line for everday use unless sombody just "gave" me an Aerowave. Even then, I'd still want a Dynasty hanging out in house.

    Dynasty dx

    Hi,

    I have been reading up on Tig welders and trying to decide which one might best suit my needs. I have a 50 amp 230 volt outlet in my garage. I wired that to handle a MM251 Mig machine that I bought last year. I do not want to rewire my garage again, it is just too much trouble. What would the maximum amperage be with a Dynasty 200 dx and 230 volts input? The graph on the Dynasty Spec sheet is misleading. The Econotig looks good but draws 52 amps at full load and that is too high. Does Miller make any AC/DC tig machines in this power range? I like Miller, but have been looking at red, yellow, and any other machines I can find.

    Any advice will be appreciated,
    W. Hatter
