View Full Version : good deal?

I located a 5 year old hobbyist welders, 354MP w/ A22 Wire feeder, and 30A spool gun.

Are their any special requirements for house/garage wiring? Is it a dryer plug?

He wants $2500. Seems like a super deal as I was planning on a 252w spool gun for 3K +.

Hahaha, guess not that good.

Another I found was a 6month old mm252 with bernard 300 upgraded gun. Might pick that up next week. Save over 6-700$.

If it's an Invision (constant-voltage mig-only) 354MP, it's probly 3-phase-only, which typically means not for use in the home garage, unless you have 3-phase power in your garage. If it's an XMT (constant current and constant voltage mig/tig/stick) then it may be 1 and 3 phase capable. You'll have to check the data plate on the back of the machine that lists the input volt/amp/phase requirements. Anyhow, $2200 for the machine with wire feeder and spool gun sounds like a good deal. XMT 304's go for 1000-2000 by themselves and Spoolmatic spool guns go for 400-800 by themselves, typically. Figure another 500 for the wire feeder.

A MM252 with Q300 gun is a good combo too.
