  • Welder damage?

    I'm looking at a used trailblazer 301g welder with low hours to purchase. I noticed that the electrode(stick) lead is connected to the wirefeeder post and the selector is set on wirefeeder. If he has been using the welder like this for long can it hurt the welder in any way. I have been using a Bobcat 225 and am not familiar with the extra connection for wirewelders.

    May not weld as good, but shouldn't hurt the power supply none. TB301G is a great machine. You can add a semi-automatic wire feeder to it and has a very smooooth weld output.

      Thanks for the reply jwsrep. If it didn't hurt the power supply but might not weld as good, what in particular could be damaged? And would it be worth buying or not. I stick weld and am wanting a real dc welder. If it isn't going to be any better than the BC 225 other than higher amps I don't need it.

        No I meant wouldn't weld good hooked up that way. There should be nothing wrong with the unit.
