    Update

    Contact name at Machine and Welding for recon used machines from Richard Childress Racing is Rick Ward. 336-723-9651. He will be getting some more stuff in this Thursday. Mostly MM210s, MM135s, MM175s, and Syncrowaves. They still might have a couple of Dynasty 300 Tigrunners from the last weeks load too.

    I was able to pick up my dynasty 200DX in recon form with a 2 year warranty vs. a 3 year from Sutton Garton here in Indy for 2100$. That was exactly one year ago and I have had nothing but great stuff to say about it.

    Now, we do also have a 1976 dialarc HF that still runs in tip-top shape everyday with only one service call in the last 8 years . Im hoping the dynasty will last as long.

    The skinny on used stuff.

    Unfortunately the recon list that MILLER puts out doesn't have a lot of stuff that we hobby guys could use. Lots of engine drives, big 3ph welders, high end plasma.... Mostly industrial stuff. Sometimes you get lucky and run across a Millermatic or a Dynasty 300 but it's rare. I do pull about 350 used machines from race teams each year. Most of these go to the servicing distributor that helps me with that team. The machines are in real good shape as they are not used hard and most get used as a work bench rather than a welder. They all carry a 1 yr warranty. If I have a dealer with some extra used stock, I will put their contact name and number out for you guys to call on. Right now the stuff from Richard Childress is going to Machine and Welding out of Winston Salem NC. I will see them on thursday and check used inventory.

    Hope this helps
    Andy

    thanks for all the input.
    i have decided to hold off on getting a TIG till after the dollie show and just save till then and get a new, never tuched, new welder smelling, right out of the box, dynasty 200dx
    who knows i might even have enough for a collmate 3 setup for it

    then there will be no regrets

Get some inside info if you can,because it just might pay off in the long run.
    If that is a concern, stick to "A" stock which still carries a 2 year warranty. If there is one of those hit and miss problems, it will rear it's ugly head long before that. After all, "A" stock machines are 2 years old or newer. Most failures in the manufacture of electronic components happen within a fairly short period of service.

    Sparky123,

    Has your BOC supplier told you or do you know that all BOC gas stores were bought out by Airgas? I know i saw it in my welding magazine, but was curious if they are still BOC or changed names to Airgas.

    Alex, I can only guess what a dealer might charge you for a refurbed 200DX. On e-bay you can buy a new one for $2,244.00. Locally, I would hope to get one for $2,300-$2,400.00 For an "A" stock refurb, I would expect to pay somewhere from $1985.00 to $2100.00, but these are based on "guesstimates" as to what a local distributor would want to make.

    There is a valuable lesson to be learned here. If you have a good relationship set up with a local distributor, or a salesperson from that distributor, all it takes is a phone call. Last year I had a customer that lives about 30 miles from our store call me, looking for a new engine driven welder. We discussed refurbs and he was all for it. He gave me certain things he required and what his budget was and within a couple weeks a Big Blue 402 popped up on the refurb list. A week later he was smiling broadly when he picked up his "like new" welder at big savings over new. On a big machine like that, the savings can be a $1,000.00 or more...



    Just a little extra that having that relationship with a local distributor brings to the table. We are not open on Staurday's, but often meet someone at our store to demo, or pick-up a welder, and I have sales people who will deliver, or demo at your shop in the evening or Saturday's, if neccessary. Just don't abuse the priveledge. Don't give up on finding a good distributor aafter the first try, there are good ones out there...
