  • Prices for used Syncrowave 250?

    I've been looking around for used water-cooled Syncrowave 250 and I couldn't find one that is less than 2,000. Shouldn't they be in 800-1,500 range, including gun and pedal?
    Thoughts?

    Price relates to demand. Good machines prices are going to be high. How you come up with used values is beyond me. No demand, prices drop, won't happen on Miller machines which hold their resale value.

      Your gonna pay for a nice used 250. Everyone wants one that can't afford a Dynasty. 1500-2000 all day long. Depending on your needs a Synco 180 or 200 may fit the bill and the wallet

        I don't get it, where did you get the idea you could pick up a complete water cooled 250 for $800??????????? Used equipment goes for market price, set by supply and demand,,,, if you can't find one for less than $2000, that's the market price.

          To me a good used 250 would be worth $2500.00, a beat up one would be in the 1500.00 range.

            I haven't seen one for sale for under $2500 in my area.

              Those WERE common prices about 7-8 years ago....

              inflation has taken it's toll and Syncs hold their value...

              you can still find those prices on older Squarewave models of other brands if you look... and are patient

              Hobart Tigwaves, Lincoln Idealarc TIG, Linde and some others
              .

                I got a 1992 barebones Sync 250 a few years ago for $850. With a used Coolmate 3 cooler and a new SSC pedal, probably $1,500. in total.

                Dialarc 250 (1974)
                Syncrowave 250 (1992)
