  • What is a used Diversion 165 worth?

    I have one about 3 years old, very moderate use, includes the basic package, a Miller foot pedal and a cover. I do not see used Diversions on ebay nor craigs list so I am at a loss as to what to ask for the machine. I guess the folks that buy them keep them.

    The welder has done everything I have ever asked of it. It basically paid for itself with the first use - repairing the linkage on my leather Barcalounger recliner. It would have cost me more to replace the recliner than the welder cost But it does not have pulse and I want pulse. I just scored a great deal on a showroom display model, unused, Dynasty 200DX at the local LWS so the Diversion needs a new home.

    I bought my Diversion 165 used about three months after Miller first started shipping them out. Got the machine, a box of electrodes in 1/16, a box of 3/32, some extra collets, collet bodies, alumina nozzles, shorty backcap, a brand new 80 cf tank of argon. All for $1000. Tried it with the hand control, then bought a foot control for it. Found it on CL, have not seen another one since.

        Thanks USMCPOP,

        I have been watching CL here in central NC on a daily basis for several months. I got a good deal on a couple of 160 CF tanks but have yet to see a Diversion. The data you provided is most helpful. I was thinking in the $800 range without the Ar cylinder as I need it but I would throw in and assortment of collet bodies, gas lens bodies, collets, cups and some various sizes of tungsten and maybe a sampling of filler. Everything to get someone started except for the shielding gas. Perhaps I should bump it up a little to allow for some bargaining. I need to consult a friend who sells a lot of cars, motorcycles and parts on CL ans learn some of his marketing tricks.

          They don't seem to have any in the SF Bay Area on Craigslist either.

            I'd ask for at least $950. You can always go down in price.
