    The short answer, not as many as you currently have.

    Don't misinterpret the answer though. You do need the 800. No doubt about it.

    To help avoid clutter in your shop, I'll arrange for a shipping company to pick up one of the older unused & unwanted units.

    That is some serious horsepower there. Couple hours welding with that cranked up and you would be able to cancel your appointment at the tanning booth.

    Can you get a deal on 3. Lol.

    When I bought my 280 I was thinking I would only need a 210 and I was right but still never sorry I bought the one with more balls. New bigger badder models are just wanna gotta haves it isn't whether you will ever need it but that you'll have it if you ever need it.

    You'd never believe they could get that out of three AAA batteries in a 16-pound machine!

    I'm thinking it's basically the same as the new 400. Expanded memory card stuff, minimal gains in output, much higher price...

    Yup. Sounds like ITW marketing genius for sure

    I do think all the members should get together and buy each Mod one of these machines

    An optimist is usually wrong, and when the unexpected happens is unprepared. A pessimist is usually right, when wrong, is delighted, and well prepared.

    We can put a couple of lead blocks inside to really weight it down and then tell Zap it has a old school transformer in it.

    I wonder if it has a drink holder. The serial port better charge my phone.

    Just finding the power switch would be a chore. Best not make it too "complicated".
