I need some advice from someone in the know. Currently I run the new TB302G and since this machine only has 55hrs of use, it is just starting to break in nicely. I was wondering if anyone else had noticed that the TB's don't seem to find their own sweet spot until about the 80 to 100 hr mark. I rigged and ran 3 different units for the company I worked for before I went on my own and they all acted the same way. Right from new they will work excellently in any position with the appropriate rod except for a 1/8 7018 which seems to choke the arc until about 80 hrs when suddenly the work like a charm too I was wondering who amongst us has ran both the gas and the diesel 302's and how does the diesel rank against a Lincoln 305D. I am plenty familiar with the bigger Miller and Lincoln diesels and what my little 302G lacks in grunt, it makes up for in arc quality and light weight versatility. So, around all my rambling, my ???? is, is the diesel that much better to justify the extra cost and weight. Thank you in advance for your opinions and advice.
