  • Engine-Driven Miller Products

    I am looking at buying a Engine-Driven welder and would like to know what you all think.

    I was looking at Trailblazer® 301 D or a Trailblazer®Pro 350 D. I kinda like the Pro 350 for the added power, and a little larger Carbon rod.

    Although i have a Dynasty 300 so AC is not a must but would be nice to have 3 phase power output so i would have to go up to the Big 40 to get that.

    Lots of choices. Your input would be nice.

    Thanks All

    I have owned several engine drives including the Bobcat and Trailblazer 301G. The 301G is nice and will do 3/16" and even 1/4" carbons. However, any of these smaller machines with small armatures do not like steady arc gouging. The 350 is a nice step up for sure. Take a look at the Pipe Pro 304 and the Pro 300D. I welded with a Pro 300D this spring and absolutely loved it. If you do go with a Big 40 be sure to invest in the CC/CV Deluxe! That would be my choice.

    Weight is a factor to consider in transporting the machine as well.
