I am needing to know real experiance with their 3 in 1 units. I am having to decide between a "UNT 520D 50A PLASMA CUTTER 200A TIG ARC MMA WELDER" and a "longevity WeldMax 164i" 40A/160A both 60%
im going to be painfully stretched if I get the longevity unit. It obviously has much better quality due to the 5yr warranty vs 1 year by Simadre. i would be loosing 10A in plasma and 40A in tig. unknown for stick. 350$ difference in price though makes me have to weigh it serously.
I will be doing farm fab 15mm thick welding/cutting max likely. the qa plate on my bucket uses 15mm steel so I plan to make the qa for my hay attachment that thick to. most of the rest of it would be standard angle iron. most other projects would be between sheet and angle in thickness depending on if im doing body work or repairing farm equipment.
I also want to hard face my buckets. afaik I would be using stick and plasma most but may get in to tig if given a reason. If i could throw money at it blindly no there wouldent be a question at all. since i cant i need to know that the 350$ investment is worth it. hell Id love to drop 3k on welding equipment right now but cant
