Default Syncrowave 250??

Since it sounds as that I'm not going to end up with the Dialarc 250HF I've been still searching...Today I came across these on CL it's a lil more than I was hoping to spend but with the cooler and such I think it'd fit me for much longer.

Alright experts...any thoughts???

Also i saw where they had them listed last week and had 3-1997s 1-93 and 1-99. And now there's only the 99 and 2-97s left. Any reason the older ones are going first? Obviously i haven't seen them in person so maybe the older ones were in better condition. I talked to the guy and they were used to production build race cars. He said they're selling them cuz he was recently promoted to manager and prefers Lincolns...I had to bite my tongue cuz i thot the only color of welders were blue? Hmmmm

The Sync 250 is an excellent TIG machine and had been the industry standard until the Dynasty series inverters hit the scene.... still a great machine with a lot of useful life...

IMHO $1800 is about average... not a bad deal.. but not a screaming deal either... I would not worry so much about the year of manufacture as the condition of Welder, Cooler, Torch, Pedal, Leads... etc...(+ options.. spot timer, pulser etc)

here is a link to the manuals... just plug in the serial number to get the version that matches the machine revision...

LOL I'm sure!!!

So pop quiz...the guy I talked to on Friday still has this Dialarc and said I could come look at it...is the sycrowave worth the extra $1300??!! I'm not planning on doing that much aluminum work just would be nice to have for the occasional job...

I would say an ethusiastic YES!!!

but only you know the status of your finances...

remember the cooler and other acces... will factor in..

as well as the advantage of square wave... AC balance etc...

ya the cooler would be nice...and I know the syncrowave is hands down a better welder; however, it's over three times the cost and I really don't have the demand for that much aluminum work so it'd take a long time to recoup the cost of the machine...

You could sell the Econotig and be ahead of the game....
