    Ranger 10000

    Finally snag a nice welder, at 380 hrs on the clock, tested it, ran the way it should be, very smooth arc. By far better than miller 215 i have now.
    Brought it for 1900, which us a fair price for very well care with low hrs.. Will get pic of it.
    Plan to sell the miller 215. I dont do tig, and hardly do mig. The ranger can be set up for mig, which i will down the road.

    If its not beat up and relatively new machine sounds like a fair price. Lincoln rates them excellent for flux cored and good for solid core MIG. I can tell you I have found the ranger 8 or 9 poor for solid core MIG welding.

    Looks good and only 346 hours to boot. Just an FYI though..... even though you'll probably weld 99.9% of everything with DC+, every once in awhile move the polarity switch to the other 2 settings just to keep the contacts clean and the switch limbered up. One of the very last machines I worked on before I retired was one of these. Had to replace the polarity switch bc customer hardly ever (if ever) switched to AC setting... and naturally the time he wanted to, the switch was stuck and broke. They're a pain in the arse to change bc Lincoln solders all the wires on.

    I think you'll really like how that machine welds

    My 90's Miller bobcat 225nt had similar hours and was about $1500 if I remember correctly.

    My manual says to run all dials and switches through their range each work day to prevent them corroding into one spot.

    And get good 100% gasoline for it, if it's available in your neck of the woods. Dope it up with Stabil, and it's good to go.

    . . . or make your own.

    Mix 1gal water to 4gal 10% gas/alcohol, shake well, let sit 1hr or more, siphon off water/alcohol = alcohol free gas.
