Anyone familiar with the EWM Tetrix 300 (AC/DC TIG) or the Mahe 300WK?
They should be as good as Lincoln or Hitachi I hear, only much cheaper.

From the EWM and Mahe salesmen offcourse.
The Mahe guy also sells Lincoln and Hitachi. And Lincoln seems to be bloody expensive over here in Europe. Also the EWM uses ActiveArc technology just like Lincoln I thought.
The EWM and Mahe machines are German products. A lot of assembly work on those machines seems to be done in Eastern European country's. That doesn't mean there's no quality inside.
Besides that I don't need to do production work with the machine, so something below top class will do. I'll stay away from the chinese welders with no brand and things like Interweld and so.
Here's my list of AC/DC 300A welders for as far as my research has gone for now with price ranges including taxes (It's for private purpose)
Top class: approx. €7-10K
Lincoln, Hobart, Hitachi, Fronius, Kemppi, Esab
Middle class €5 - 7K
Rehm, Mahe, EWM
Bottom class €3-5K
Nono class <€3K
IMS, LCD class, Free Tig

Well, after the holidays we did it.
Skipped Rehm, Mahe, and Kemppi and went for a Hitachi 300DG TIG welder AC/DC. Lincoln and Miller are too expensive in Holland to my idea.
It even left the new Fronius (austria) MagicWave 2500 far behind.
Next tuesday we'll pick it up and have a real go.
