  • When are the 375 Extreme plasmas going on sale?

    Keep looking for them at Cyberweld & B&R, also google to check for any info and get nothing. Very interested in getting one, but my LWS doesn't deal and likes TD plasmas over Miller anyway. Are they still on the way or have they run into some glitch?

            I saw one in Tulsa @ Lampton Welding Supply. I was quoted $1500. As a rough guide you can step up to the next higher unit from the online suppliers for what the locals charge. For $1500 I can get a Powermax 600 and have money left over to spend on flowers for my funeral. LOL

              BTW my Local guy here in town has a Cutmaster 81 I can get for 2 grand. Unit was previously sold but return without being used. I can't really justify it but it looks like a lost puppy sitting there. I keep hoping some else adopts it before I do. LOL

                Good luck. I paid $1200 for mine w/case and that was before the price increase. I bought it through my LWS. For me, it was a matter of need for the portability. I couldn't see myself dragging around a CM 81 for the work I do. **** I don't even load up my CM 50 for mobile work. If you have a NEED for it, I would just get it as it will pay for itself over time. JMO.

                    For a home hobbyist shop, I'd save myself a few hundred dollars, and go with a Spectrum 375 instead of the more expensive Extreme model. The only advantage I seeing with the Extreme, is the smaller package, which isn 't worth the extra cost in my case. After all, the Spectrum 375 isn't any larger then a compact 175/180 MIG unit.

                        Just a thought, if you do get the bucks I also will be needing one of those to sit next to my 375.

                          The pluses of the X-treme outweigh extra cost in my view, though that probably isn't the case in many others situations. This and my Passport will give me great capability that will work anywhere I can get 110 power and that I can easily move in my VW's trunk. Plus take up minimal room in my already cramped single car shop/garage (which only has 110 as well).

                            Manny, in your case, it sounds like your wanting to save a little space by getting the slightly smaller unit. Anyway, I just wanted to point out, for others reading this who might not know, that like the Extreme model, the Spectrum 375 is capable of being ran on a 120V circuit too.

                              The 375 standard is pig when you pick it up. The X-treme is a breeze to move.
                              Even around the house it make sense to me. I hate lugging the 120/230 standard inverter Thermal XL-38 I have. I enjoyed the time I used a esab
                              250 (18 amp/ 120 volt) plasma that weighed 8 pounds. It funny how much weight has a factor in which tool you have to pack.
