    sounds like you are right on the money... looks like I will get better results and not have to drag bulky older equipment around.. seems that Hawk has figured out the hot ticket with his setup... Trailblazer 301g for most and having the Dynasty 200 available when needed.... not to worry.. have a Dynasty on my shopping list... will come in after the Spectrum 2050...and... both will come in time... My Trailblazer... is generating the funding... just a matter of patience and priorities on my part...
    Thanks
    and
    Take Care

    PS... Carl.. I have had good experiences with B&R .. and excellent prices..

    Dynasty 200 Vs. Sync-DECIDED!

    Alrighty, then, Dynasty 200DX it is. Will Miller continue to make the Sync 250 considering it is larger, more expensive and less versatile than this other series? Other than just the synonomous name brand, I would guess that it would just be product ignorance that would prompt someone to buy the Sync 250 instead of the Dyansty?
    At any rate, thank you all for your responses, All we have to do now is narrow down our choice of retailers for buying one!

    Yea..I would have to agree with HAWK, and like I said before, I have had both the Syncs and chose to update to the Dynastys and never looked back. I have two Dynasty 300s and one 200 and can say in all honesty that for your use, the Syncrowave will not do anything more for you or do it better. Don't get me wrong...the Syncrowave is a Caddy but the Dynasty is the Porsche!

    Andy.

    ps.

    Heiti, wait 'till ya put the Dynasty(porsche) through it's gears

    Carl,

    I have written a dozen or more posts on the Dynasty 200DX. I would not trade mine for 2 Syncrowave with prepaid power usage. It welds aluminum as easy as steel. It is as user friendly or as technically complicated as you want to make it. It is the cat's meow!

    as a post script to my previous post... still do a fair amount of that type of race car.. hotrod type fab...

    (lucky for me that those cars are still being raced as vintage or antique racers..and maintained as they were then.... but in my own mind not much more fun or a kick in the pants than a Porsche 935 when you put your foot in it and climb through the gears... )

    Back to the subject at hand.. have the Hobart Tigwave 250 which is the same as the Sync 250 in all but paint and labels... and is a wonderful machine... have had it about 12 or so years..and love it... but tend to do repair or restoration work on that type of critter at the customers garage.. so... typically use my little italian dc only 90 amp toaster size tig inverter... if I am going to do ferrous stuff ... or if I need to do AL stuff like cracks in intercoolers etc. will drag along the RED lincoln squarewave tig 175.... these machines cover about 95 percent of that type of work that I do for this class of work away from the shop... if I need more horsepower... will fire up the Trailblazer 301G on the back of my truck and then start to run cables and argon hoses... or make arrangements to do the work back at my shop......and use the SYNC250.... after all of this wordy stuff... I will buy a Dynasty 200 in the not too distant future.. as it will do the the same or better job as the machines that I have been using for this purpose with less weight.. my only caveat is that the Dynasty has a 90 page users manual .. a lot of which appears to be about menus and commands that may take quite a learning curve as opposed to the more conventional sync250 that has switches and pots that are more familiar and easy to most of us....
    But alas... most of my day to day stuff these days is burning stick from the Trailblazer in some stone quarry... or AL wire from the 30A (from the Trailblazer) repairing beat up aluminum ramps at some trucking terminal...
    gotta feed the bulldog...
    hope this was helpful
    take care

    You couldn't get me out of my dynasty

    It is the best machine going. It cuts thru aluminum like butter. The pulser function will be real helpful with the ss exhaust,radiators and intercoolers. The dynasty doesn't use the power off the wall like the sync's. Both are excellent machines, but the dynasty is a notch above in my book.

    for a performance fab shop... my answer is the sync does nothing that you would miss... stuff like 300amps on the top end (at reduced duty cycle) and the ability to burn stick all day...I worked for Dave Kent at Creative Car Craft in Hawthorne, Ca... about 30 years ago.. and for hotrod and imsa Camel GT race car stuff... the tig machines were hardly ever set above about 120amps and usually about 20 or so for sheet metal and around 90-110 for welding cages and stuff.... again.. I have not used a Dynasty.. but my friends that have them swear by them.. and because of the available arc manipulation are able to make it do heavier material with fewer amps.. with a narrower and prettier bead....
    have not bought one yet but probably will in time
    hope this helps

    Dynasty 200 Vs. Sync

    Andy,
    Thank you for the response, it sounds like the Dynasty 200 (DX?) is the machine to get. It actually looks like it works out cheaper than the Sync 250, as well. Let me reverse engineer my question and post this, what does the Sync 250 do better, and why would someone be better off with that machine over the Dynasty?

    Carl,

    Welcome!
    First, I also have owned both and when the Dynastys came out and I ran them, it was a dead issue. The Sync 250 is a great machine but the Dynasty is Awsome. It's arc cone is more defined and it is actually easier to weld with. The Dynasty 200 and a water cooler might be the set up for you as whith the thicker material might cause the air cooled torch to get hot.
    As far as going red or blue....the blue ones are made in the USA!

    Thanks for the question and like arcdog said, you will find no shortage of posts on this subject.

    Sync 250 Vs. Dynasty

    Thank you all for the initial replies, I'll check out the previous posts for more answers. While I'm sure that the Sync 250 is a reliable, rock solid machine, I'm most concerned about doing the best quality of work with the absolutely most ideal machine. The quest continues.....
