    Not ruling out a brush problem... since it has them...

    SIMPLEY...That Not All Gensets Have Brushes.... ...
    Where did i give him a hard time? Must have missed that. Again just pointing out how the machine works. However back to my point...tell me an engine drive which does not use a rotor/slip ring/brush. They dont exist, why......maybe someone will chim in. However i would bet....cost, design, and space are the reasons.

        To bad they quit making them 3 years ago, and doubt your going to see a pipeliner roll up with a scout bolted to their rig. So...show me a 200-400 amp pipeline rig that is brushless...goodluck.

          Sorry for no updates, we have been working long hrs on a UPS job, I got a quote of $ 1,734.00 to fix the welder, they said the Rotor is open and the brushes need to be replaced, not sure if this is a good or bad price, but its junk if I dont fix it so its getting fixed.

          Its been a good machine.

          Thank goodness for having a back up Trailblazer.
