    07 vantage 300

    I have a vantage 300. Love the machine. Only down side is I do not know how I can run another set of leads for welding. We do alot of pipe fence building and was wondering the proper way of running 2 set of leads. Highest amps we would go is 120 on c.c. mode with 7018. I know it got the power to do it

    Does that have a dual operator mode?

    Easiest way is to plug in another welder, like an ESAB 161 size machine - in my opinion that is.

    Sounds like he wants to be able to have two people weld off one machine at the same time

    That's what I think too, but unless it has that option I'd think using one of the AC plugs and plugging in a small inverter would be a good option.

    Then two people could be welding.

    I'd think his machine can run 120 amps DC current and enough AC juice to power the inverter at the same weld amperage?

    I'll have to look into the invertor

    The ESAB 161 is $490 at cyberweld, but there are other choices out there too.

    I have 2 of them in the school shop and they weld good.

    If they were to be used all day every day, I'd replace the stinger and work lead with longer ones.

    Well I haven’t been around a vantage but I am guessing in order to get that much auxiliary power your fine current is going to have to be set at max that is gonna affect your other welder drastically!

    No the vantage can weld at any amps n it does not affect the generator however my dad's lawn mower gxt you do have to turn output up. Hate that damn thing. Mine is a 4 cyl diesel. Nice machine throu
