    As far as power supply goes i found it cheaper just to run a new service to my garage. Out here where i live they let me use the unlimited tap rule, i just had to get a 400A meter base for the house then ran 200A service to the garage.

    Because the Dynastys are single OR 3 phase.

    no standardized 3 phase plugs like the single phase ones.

    cool plug

    MILLER EXCLUSIVE! Multi-voltage plug allows you to connect to common 115 or 230 VAC power receptacles without the use of any tools – choose the plug that fits the receptacle and connect it to the power cord.



    wonder why you dont get a plug like that for the dyn.200.

    any chance you could order 1?

    Gordo,

    The Miller Passport is now out. It is a 180 amp inverter mig with a built in CO2 cartridge for true portability. Of course an external gas supply hook up is available also. It features an inductance switch for hard and soft wires as well. Take a look.

    Update

    Any updates on this topic since July? Any inverter MIG plans soon (in the 175-210 class machines)?

    Yes, that is a shade of green I'm turning.

    If I were you, then I would wait and see. You will be pleasantly surprised and ultimately happier than if you purchase now. Hint...

    The Miller catalog says that on a 230v circut the MM210 only draws 27 amps at rated output and I have heard that people have run it off of a 30amp breaker without trouble. Try posting this on the hobart site.

While the mm210 has a loyal following, and I have no doubt it's a great machine, I suspect I won't be the only one looking at an inverter based alternative when it's available.
    Hobbyist,

    Hang loose and be patient. "It" is oh so sweet! I

    I have used an inverter mig {invision 345mp w/22a feeder},there are some cool features but the price is still to high for this ol boy. If money weren't an issue I would own an invision. I think you will like the mm210 when you get there, I had mine for 1-1/2 years and love it.

    Peace,

    Hobbyist,

    The ALT304, discontinued but may still be a few around, is a very nice 70 pound unit capable of 400 amps maximum output with 300 amps at 60% duty cycle on three phase power. But wait, it will still provide the same 300 amps on single phase power at about 35% duty cycle. The catalog lists 225 amps at 60% on single phase and that is misleading.

    The XMT 304 is a current production unit very similar to the ALT. The main differences being the V/A curve on the ALT will go a bit lower in the 20 amp range and the XMT is closer to 50 amps on the bottom end. Also the ALT is "auto line" circuitry like the Dynasty. The XMT is "auto link" and will draw no more than 50-60 amps on 1 phase- less than that at 225 amps.

    I set up an XMT with an 8RC wire feeder, for a client, yesterday evening on a 1 phase 40 amp outlet and it rocks at 350 amps with .035" wire. A larger wire would have pushed it to the 400 amps mark! These are multi-process machines that will MIG both voltage sense and true CV, STICK, and "lift arc" tig out of the box with only some cable, ground clamp/stinger, wire feeder, and tig torch set up!
