  • Dynasty 300DX vs Dynasty 350

    What is the difference besides 50 amps? I have a 300 DX. It still has good value. Is there ANY reason to step up to a 350? I don't need the extra 50 amps.
    Thanks

    Heck... as long as it is still operating properly... hang on to it..

    the Dynasty 300 has some expensive/difficult service issues if it does croak...

    there are several old threads on it if you do a search...

      I searched and found some threads. It ain't going anywhere. I am not a big time welder. I use it for fabricating. I probably weld under 40 hours a year... so it will be around a while.

        Massive differences in the 2 units, same basic result though. However while the 350 is reliable and logical to repair. The 300 is not, and is basically a boat anchor

          So, even though it welds great, just throw it away?

            Sorry, meant to say that if it breaks, it's simply not worth fixing.... Generally the stick stops working, or the AC tig ceases to work.

                Why..?? It has served you well for years...

                Will probably still be serving you well for many more...

                if and when it dies...

                then... you should be ready to replace it with the latest technology of the time...
