    It won't run it is what he said.

    Besides, I thought we were still talking about a Maxstar. How exactly is the Syncro on your list for portable work?

    Miller 250 to sell or not to sell that is the question

    I was told that the don't run or won't run off a 250. I'm also wanting a remote for the small bucher shops and farm work I would like to do in the future. I think my 250 and 12 v are sold already. is 4500.00 a good price for the 250 with 45 hrs a 12 v brand new in never used and two sets of leads with parts to build reels for both. oh yeah 100' argon hose? one set is 100' the other 30 of OO.

    I was thinking like Mac stated. Power one of the Maxstar units off your generator. I image a large volume of restaurant work being sheet metal thicknesses, which would make the pulse features on a Maxstar 150 STH or 200 DX very useful options to have available.

    They work very well when powered by your existing Bobcat, though. And still give you all the Maxstar bells and whistles, and you only have to drag a power cord in, not welding leads/hoses. You'd be amazed how often it is perfectly acceptable to use customer-provided power also.

    But don't get me wrong. If you insist on wanting to weld from the engine-drive, the Trailblazer is lightyears ahead of the Bobcat.

    It may be harder on your nerves getting it to feed right all the time, unless it is perfectly straight with zero bends...Bob
