    Default XR-push pull, out of position aluminum

    Hiya
    I do a lot of welding in ridiculous positions, some where I can't even see the end of the gun. I am often bending the cables to get at tight spots. Will the XR push pull tolerate this with 4043 wire? Any experience anyone?
    Right now I'm using a 210 with spoolgun and .30 or .35 wire, but the gun gets in the way and I keep breaking the trigger wires in the cable due to all the flexing and twisting I have to do. I'm welding the insides of globes by the way, take a look at http://giantglobes.com/
    I am looking at getting a 350P with the XR aluma pro gun....thoughts anyone?

    Thanks

    Matt

    wow, those are really neat

    i have never used that exact push/pull gun, but i have used others similar and can say they are much more enjoyable to use than a standard spool gun. i cant comment on how the wire will hold up as im having trouble visualizting how you are twisting the cables enough to break the trigger wire

    i use the xr edge gun 30 foot long. i dont know about 4043 wire but i have had the cable tied into a couple of knots and it fed ok. (mainly just to see if it would). you'll definately get a forearm workout from it though.
