      And the fact they offered to buy it is sketchy too. I bet they never even opened it. I have a dead Dynasty350 that endured some 8000 hours of hard labor that I keep for an ornament. It indeed failed under full load, and has bad boards. However I would gladly take $750 for it, as I know for a fact that it died a noble death and aint coming back to life.
      8000hrs on it ? How many arc starts ? Lol the one I bought only has 200 hrs on it glad u got too see 8000hrs out of it

        That is a guess because it won't even power up. But it was a production unit burning alum for 5 years. It was a pre-blue-lightning unit and I really like how the blue lightning works.

          Everything can be converted into a time frame.

          150,000 / 60 MPH = roughly 2,500 hours on a car that you are looking to purchase. That would mean you are looking to buy a car that ran for a year and a quarter at 60 mph during a normal 40 hour work week, year.


          8,000 hours would equal 4 work years (52 weeks x 40 hrs week, - 80 hrs vacation)

          8,000 hours x hourly arc starts of avg 35 equals 280,000

          I figured 35 as an average of 20 ASph if welding, and 50 ASph if fitting/tacking

            Had'nt thought of it that way. Puts a different light on it.
