    Default Welders from auction: Which to keep?

    Bought a lot of welders from a school board auction.

    Miller Dimension 400 CC-CV
    Miller Pulstar 450 CV
    Miller Dialarc 250 CC - AC/DC
    Hobart 300 CC - AC/DC
    Lincoln Idealarc 250 CC - AC/DC
    Lincoln SAE 300 (MG set)

    All condition unknown. Before I start planning fix-to-use or sell for parts, any comments on these models? Are any known dogs to stay away from?

    Thanks!

    What is the duty cycle of them, anything less than 60% should be moved along.

    Do you have 3 phase?

    The blue boxes are excellent machines if you have the power to run them.

    The SAE 300 is the best welder of the lot, as long as you have cheap power, 3 phase, and are deaf. The Idealarc 250 is a good stick welder.

    There all great machines, I use to say if you want to see how well something is made see what survives in schools and rental yards.
