  • How about it. Can anyone give some input on this?????

    I was looking at a 2005 model 350P with about 300 hours on it and I'm assuming 10,004 arc strikes on it.(It was only registering 4 so I assumed it turned over). Again, assuming that it was not used in a heavy plate fab shop being ran near max every day, what are the hour and arc strike " magic numbers" when you should just not even consider the machine and walk away from it?
    By the way, I could probably get the machine for about $1,400.00.

    Also, when you would turn it on and it would power up, it would buzz very, very loudly. Much louder than the new 350P that I have. Is that an indicator of something???

    Hey Cruizer, got any input on this? You have probably seen a few.

      Nice units, based on the XMT304, your buzzing / chattering has to do with a failed contactor. Not a big deal nor expensive to change out. (-$40) just REMEMBER the positions of all the wiring on it, cause if you get the auxillary winding wires wrong, the machine's output board goes poof.

      $1400 isn't bad either, you could probably tell the guy that the loud buzzing could be a bad inverter if the guy doesn't have a clue and get it cheaper.
