I like CK torches, I find that they have more options that I like better. The CK 230 flex head with superflex cables is what I ran for a long time. It israted at 300 amps takes 20 torch consumables, and is little bigger than a 20 torch. I now have a CK 20 flex head as my standard torch, but I have 3 other water cooled torches, a CK24, Weldcraft 20 pencil, and a CK Trimline 350 amp torch, that is still smaller than a regular 18 torch. All have superflex cables.

I can also tell you that I like 2% Lanthanated tungsten the best.

I can tell you that the only way you will get a 300DX Tigrunner for $4800.00 now is used. The lowest internet price is around $6100 like in the included link.

I would recommend not buying a machine of this class on-line and I would encourage you to find a good local dealer. It will make you a world of difference in the long run, even if you pay a little more for the machine than you could get it on the internet. Just my .02 but after being in business for 6 years, I couldn't live without my LWS.

I completely concur.

Miller P/N 903 841 011 List $7749.00 (300DX Tigrunner with Torch)

If they are reputable at all they should start you at $6200, see if you can talk them down to $5850, I doubt you could get a new one for less than that.

I have had mine for over 3 years so i know about the price increase. To think I almost went with the Syncro 350, and I totally agree about the LWS. I just made a huge equipment upgrade and should have my stuff in a week or two. My dealer beat everyone else by 2000.00. Of course I spent close to 10,000.
