Don't know a thing about that particular machine.

I do have an older Solar 2115 Mig. Not a bad little mig, but not on a par with current machines.

Solar is no longer in the welding business. Rumored that they were bought out by Century and then ceased to exist.

I would be very leary of a Solar tig. If you ever had a problem (and you will), I question if you'd be able to get it repaired or even get parts.
