  • 300DX torch hose issues

    So, I have a Miller Dynasty 300DX I bought as a package. I had a shop fire, and welder has sat for a couple of years. I fired it up and leaking water hoses. no big deal??
    EXCEPT, the torch that came with the package is a diamondback torch. The only number I see on the torch is "20M" on the torch head.
    I had the rubber reinforced lines. I want them again. It looks like line replacement (all 3, as I have not pressure tested gas line, but 2 leaking, the third probably is) is $75 or more.
    Should I just buy a new torch assembly, complete?
    Why would one want/ need quick disconnect hose ends? I know why... but are they really useful?
    Thanks
    Oh.... I could use rubber off the spool, as both ends are just push on and screw tight.... for water and gas.
    Suggestions?
    Thanks

    PS.... 25' torch leads

    The W-250 is the current equiv to your WP-20/ 20M Diamondback

    I would replace the whole unit and be done with it... torch ... hoses and all

    quick disconnects are only useful if you are trading torches frequently...... otherwie save your money

      That is what I was thinking IF all of the cups, gas lenses collets, etc swap over.
      BUT, I found a site.. Millerwelds4less that has the 3 lines for about 120 bucks. that is not to bad. IF I want the red, blue colors, they are a little more.
      It says they are true Miller parts.
      Anyone have experience with these guys?

        the 20 & 9 series cups... collets... gas lens... etc... all interchange... the W-250 uses the same parts....

        Miller changed all the names when they bought Weldcraft...WHY..?? who knows

        here is a guide that translates the model numbers
