    depending on the year, it may have pulse as an option. The earlier 250s didn't even have pulse as an add on

    You might want to study the manuals for both welders. I recall that the 250, despite its name, is rated to put out close to 300 amps. I am not sure about the 300.

    Syncrowave 300 weighs 340 lbs more than a Syncrowave 250, draws about 28 amps more on the input current, has a max current of 375 vs 310 for the Syncrowave 250, and has a much higher duty cycle. In addition, the 300 has the start current control, and the pulsing features that older syncrowave 250s lacked. The 250 has an arc control feature for SMAW that the 300 lacks.

    I guess it all comes down to how much pulsing do you do and how much work on heavy aluminum where the added amps would make a difference.

    Thank you all. I am just a hobyist but as the sw300 has the pulser I think I will keep it.
