  • Syncrowave 210 questions

    I just ordered a Syncrowave 210 after doing a little research, but I have a few questions that I'm having a hard time finding answers to.

    I'd like to order a pyrex cup kit for the torch that comes with the machine, but can't find any info on the factory torch size?

    I assume I can swap the air cooled torch out for a water cooled torch if needed?

    I have plenty of mig's in the shop, so I didn't order the 210 that comes with the spool gun. If I wanted to run a spool gun off the standard Syncrowave 210 in the future, can I simply hook it up, or are they different power sources all together?

    This will be the first inverter tig I've ever owned. Can I safely power it off my engine drive for field work?

    Thanks in advance

    The spool gun option can come as a field kit, and no, your not going to run it off an engine drive

      Any particular reason why the engine drive wouldn't work?

      I don't do enough tig work to justify a Dynasty, but I have a friend that runs one off of his engine drive every day.


      We both have Trailblazer 325's, which I could use if necessary, but I'll have the Syncrowave in the job trailer which has a Hobart Champion 10,000 in it for power (we don't use the Hobart for welding).

      I run a Spectrum 625, as well as the occasional portable mig off that unit quite a bit & you would never know you weren't plugged into a wall.

        Its a frequency dirty power thing on your champ. Although is relitively clean power on your 325. That would be your only option. Seen lots of these all blown up running on engine drives

          Synchrowave is not in inverter, rather it's a transformer machine. Unless they drastically changed things for the 210...

            Guess they did...

            Just read the 210 specs. Thinking it's more of a hybrid. To heavy to be a full inverter.

              I'm a little confused on what it is as well? Some have said that it is just inverter based technology, while others have said that it is indeed an inverter & the extra weight comes from the 252 case that it's in as well as the pedal, torch & stick leads that are stored onboard?
              Seems to be kind of like a dumbed down version of a maxstar, possibly what's left of the failed 280?

              Either way, I don't need much as this unit will be for the occasional tig weld in the field, as I have a Syncro 250 in the shop. What is really important to me is the ability to power it in the field.
              As someone mentioned up above, they thought I could get away with running it off the 325, but the 325 is mounted on my personal work truck & it won't always be where the 210 will be, in the job trailer with the Champion 10,000 that I was hoping to run it off of.

              Hopefully a Miller rep can shed some light on this for me? I always thought that this Champion was the consumer version of the Bobcat, which I hear is a better power producer than my Trailblazer? That was the main reason for the Hobart purchase, to power all the equipment in the job trailer when a power source is not available, with the added benefit of throwing down a quick weld if need be.

              Anyone know if this thing comes with a standard 17 series torch? I'd like to get a pyrex cup setup for it before it gets here.
