    ESAB Dip-Pak 250

    I just saw two of these mig welders for sale, one for $900 and one for $600. I can't seem to find much on the web about them. Has anyone every used one? Thoughts on them. Also looking for a pdf manual, but can't seem to locate one.

    Thanks,

    Dave

    That model isn't on the esab north america site, at least doesn't seem. The only thing the search function did for me was come up with a fuse or something along those lines. Under mig welders all I saw was factory grade. Their site generally is better than the competition for the stuff I am intrested in.

    Isn't there a brand specific section on this forum, other brands is one of the options?

    They have responded to email in my experience.

    Thanks fran...k! I'll check that out. I went to their site, but I couldn't find anything. I emailed them today, but I doubt I'll get a reply until sometime next week. I'll check the brand specific forums and see what's there!

    Re: ESAB Dip-Pak 250

    then i would be trying to contact esab for support ...i bet if you call and tell them what machine
    you have they just may send you a manual (by email or reg mail)
    since they offer a bunch of others on their site
    i saw one on flebay and it it was listed as a ,,, DP 250
    some times it works to just go to the source and ask

    It's likely the same machine as this:

    I believe it is an airco dip pak 250 that esab put their name on when the bought the rights to airco.

    I found that yesterday, I thought the same. Here's a picture of it though, it is different.

    Here's some more pictures of it. Price is down to $375, but I still can't find any info on them. Probably let it slide:

    I'd bag it for that price but try to drive it down lower on principle. It's new enough to be an ESAB rather than a precursor brand so matching up feed rollers etc should be no problem.

    Euro-backend MIG guns are easy to replace with many different brands.

    ESAB customer service in Florence has some manuals not on the server. Give them a call.
