Size:  12.3 KBI went and picked this up today from the shipping dock.

    Get home, unwrap it, it's the wrong machine.

    I ordered the trailblazer 325 with just excel power, this one is efi and excel power.

    I guess I will be calling Vern's tomorrow with my fingers crossed that I get to keep it.

    I wouldn't call. That's what they sent you. Let them call you. I'm sick and tired of stupid store clerks and employees screwing up customer's orders. There's waaaaay too much incompetence in retail nowa days. If they want it back, let them contact you. Otherwise you have to wrap it up and send it out for shipping. Naturally they will pay for shipping, but its their problem. If they don't say anything, oh well.

    Check all your paperwork. Compare the serial numbers. If they match it is yours and you can register it as yours. The paperwork proves it. Obviously they knew what they were doing.

    If the numbers don't match, someone else got your machine. You may have to send it back. I think it would be in their best interest to save the shipping, gift it and rework the documents IMO.

    Nice machine.

    I had a issue with Verns, in that they forgot to put the tig module in my machine. I thought they left out the rest of the tig package too. I got on the phone, and we went over everything, and make sure what was what. They sent out the missing part, and told me to look under the other cover for the rest. Straight forward inventory checking of parts, and everything was good. I have a feeling you just got a better deal then you thought.. Mine was a $4,000.00 + package, for about $1,900.00 shipped (Multimaster 300) :cool Some of their deals are the best on the net..

    Check the evening news and see if there's any mention of a stock-picker showing up in the dumpster behind Vern's warehouse.

    I just took delivery of the same machine a few weeks ago. You are lucky that you got the EFI version at the same price. This makes starting much easier in the cold and reduces the amount of fuel consumption.

    Aaron, you still interested in selling the 325? You just got it in Feb, mind me asking what went wrong or why your selling? I am interested in one, but live in Colorado shipping my guess $300-$400. How much?

    Re: New welder

    Oh I spoke to Jodi at Vern's day before yesterday and she's looking for me a machine. I can buy now or later not in a rush so I have time for her to find one. Is your's still under warranty and how much longer? I have heard a couple friends having fuel module problems, Miller has been quick to respond!! Also concerned on the Excell power inverter having to be replaced, have you seen these problems? Thanks
