    I believe the Miller Legend 302 is. I saw one at a show a while back, and it was rather impressive how quiet it was. It accomplishes that because the engine will weld at 1800 rpm. (half of what standard welders run rpm wise)

    The Legend is designed for quiet. Which gives it some limitations over other machines, but worth looking into!

    1800 RPM diesels will also be significantly quieter, plus the other benefits of a low-RPM diesel.

    There are also 3600 RPM diesels, like the Trailblazer 350 Pro which can weld at 1800 RPM idle for 150A, IIRC.

    I'll second that. A local welder that I work with often has one and with other tool runnig you hardly know that the pro 300 is running.
