I just picked up a used Maxstar 150s for $400 the other day....... I wired up my 220v cord and burned about 6 6011 1/8" rods.......all I can say is WOW......this has the easiest arc start I have ever seen........I started out @90 amps.......ran the 6011's just fine.....so I decided to turn her up a little...120 amps......she would burn um as fast as I could feed um......great little machine.....my only fear is that it may spoil me with the easy arc start .
