If you look at the technical stats on the inverter technology I fail to see how anyone could say that a transformer is better. A tranformer on average is around 2-3x as heavey ,dimensionally 2x as large, limited to either single or three phase, and the power consumption rate over an inverter is on average 30-60% MORE. Now whether your in a shop[three phase 575] or you want to take your machine home [single phase 220] for the weekend, only an inverter can give you that luxury.A transformer machine seems to draw way too much amperage for home use. Not to mention all the added features with say a Dynasty series machine.
If $$$ aren't an issue, the inverter seems to be my obvious choice.Can anyone suggest to me if or why an inverter or a transformer would be better,please note that I use Squarewave Lincoln 355 as well as Syncrowave 250 Dx at work so I have used both configurations.
Thanks for everyones input.
