    Esab 350 MPI

    Theres one of these for sale with a wire feeder locally for a good price. It is apparently a working unit.

    Seems like ESAB's version of an XMT.

    Does anyone have a review on this machine? What are your opinions on buying one?

    There's not much in the search function regarding this machine. I don't want to buy it and then find out its more like an XMT300.

    Thanks.

    It's limited more in single phase output then a XMT 304. 250 amps single phase. Tons of voltage, and not limited there. Much more adjustable short arc, then any XMT series machine. Very loud fan too. As far as reliablity, and weldabilty top notch.. You can make it weld like a XMT or a Lincoln Powerwave C-300 in the short-arc by changing the slope around. CO2 setting makes very similar to a Miller, and the C-25 makes like a Lincoln. That's running C-25 in both settings. Slope for Aluminum is very nice too.Slope adjustment for spray-arc/etc.. too. You well find it wets the puddle out great, and really only need very limited inductance settings to make big changes in the arc. It will support Lincoln's 42 volt feeders with a cable (LF-72) or Hobart 19 pin feeders by moving a few pins around. Pulse can be had by using a 4hd feeder, and the 350 pulse box. Also a 4-30 4-48 feeder, and the optional built in feeder pulse setup..

    Well I missed out on the machine by one day.

    It was a 350 mpi with a 2e feeder and cables with an asking price of $600. It was misclassified on CL.

    For that price, I thought it was a steal.
