    I WOULD GIVE THE MAXSTAR 150 A SERIOUS LOOK IN THE $800 RANGE. EVEN THOUGH 100 AMPS MAY DO THE JOB I WOULD FEEL MORE COMFORTABLE WITH AT LEAST 120 AMPS ON THE TOP END. REMEMBER A 100 AMP MACHINE WILL ONLY HAVE THAT OUTPUT FOR 1-2 MINUTES WITH AN 8-9 MINUTE RESTING PERIOD. REMEMBER TO CONSIDER THE MACHINE DUTY CYCLE. TAKE A LOOK. NOW HERE IS A MACHINE WITH AMPS AT 100% DUTY CYCLE. I BELIEVE IT WILL COMFORTABLY DO YOUR JOB WITH SOME POWER LEFT OVER. FOOD FOR THOUGHT...

    Yes the list price is $996. A good dealer or internet reseller will get you down to a reasonable deal. I found one locally for 765.00 plus tax.
