I have never used the machine you are talking about, but in my experience with the ESAB equipment I have used it was about as good as it gets. I would not hesitate at buying it myself. I was very close to purchasing an esab mig when i purchased my last one, but wound up going with lincoln only because I got an unbelievable deal on it.
could soemone tell me what "touch start ignition" is? does that just mean scratch start or is it soemthing different.

Touch start..... Step on pedal to start gas flowing and. TOUCH the tungston to the work. PAUSE a second or two to let the tungston heat up. ROLL the torch on the gas cup to pull the tungston off the work. Walla! you have an arc.
there is no pedal with the model.
