    LOL that's price in the Acklands catalog... Guess they just overinflate the price by thousands, then put it on sale...which is really the regular price.

    I already found a better local dealer, Praxair wants $3230 for the 200DX while as Acklands wants $4300.

    Sorry to take this off topic even futher but...rain252 the cost of living in Canada varies, in Sask where I live the cost of living is quite low but then so is the salary. Haha. Well if you compare it to Alberta or BC...or Ontario then you're getting paid more, but then the cost of everything is much higher. I guess it's the same as comparing say...living in LA to say...Billings, Montana. Haha.

    The runner should only be about $2100 CAD, and the base model with access. about $1900 CAD. I suggest trying another local dealer!

    I run my 180 sd with #6 wire and a 50 amp dual breaker. I don't have that much problem, but I rarely go over 120 amps (tubing).

    rain252,

    A Canadian dollar will get you $0.795 in US currency at today's echange rate.

    Things are pretty expensive up here but $2900 for a 180sd is to much even in the great white north. $1800-1900 is good but your going to spend $2900 then look at a 200dx because I have seen them go for that. Which may not seem like a deal but up here thats not bad.

    Your XMT is an inverter power supply. The 180SD has a BIG honkin' transformer in it. Time to add a 60A circuit in the shop...

    180 Sd

    Most definitely need a big breaker, that machine at full draw putting out 180 Amps takes 75 AMPS of input power at 220V!!! I had to upgrade the electric service in my house when I had that machine. I have since sold it and purchased a 200 DX that uses like 15 Amps? 20 Amps? 110V, 220V or 3 Phase, worth every red cent! I also had to make up a 4 guage extension cord, and fasten your seatbelt for the price of the plugs for a wire that size, actually you need to use a pin and sleeve style plug, but that is mega-bucks, we are talking like generator power transfer equiptment. I used 50 Amp plugs and receptacles and never had any melt down problems, I am sure that I was operating in a safety margin that I would imagine is built into electrical equipment of that nature. Get out the plastic and buy a new machine!!! :-)

    It takes a 60A breaker and minmum of number 8 wire. Its the nature of the type of machine.

    Did you read the electric specs in the manual? The 180 is a greedy bugger.

    started a topic Syncrowave 180 blowing breaker

    Syncrowave 180 blowing breaker

    Just tryed out new syncrowave 180Sd yesterday, I wired on a plug and was tig welding aluminum at upto 130amps after welding about a 4" bead on some tubing the twinpole 40s popped . I let it cool tryed again and it popped. Ok so I move to the new part of the shop with newer panel and different ciruit still popped. Does that high frequency use extra current or what. I had little trouble welding at 300amps with the xmt on a 220v circuit. Any input is apprectiated
Working...
