I'm looking into the new ESAB Multimaster 260 Pulse welder.
It has Tig, Mig and Stick. In my opinion its fairly reasonable.
-has anyone had any experience with this welder?
-does anyone know of a good source to buy this from?
-if not what's a good multi-process welder in the same price range $2100-2800.

As a pretty big esab fan I would just try to find a deal on a powermig 300.The esab 250 plus is a better mig welder then the 260.When you add up all the gagets to turn it into a decent tig welder or even a good pulse welder you will be over what a powermig 300 will cost.The only way the esab makes sense is if you want a mig stick unit.Even then the powermig has a more refined stick welding settings.Check on some of the option prices before you decide on that machine.I think the pulse and inductance will be way over a $1,000.00 extra.Then you will need a tig control add on for lift-arc.Just trying to clue you in on what looks like a good deal might not be.Most esab reps that I know still think the 250 plus is the better short-arc mig.
