    Question Anyone running a Big Blue Pipepro 350

    Anyone have some considerable time behind one of these new machines yet? I did a search and came up with nothing, so stop me if this topic has been covered already. If you're running one, how does it handle 6010? Looks like an interesting machine, I hope its proves to be more reliable than some of its predecessors.

    Default not quite

    Hey Coalsmoke, I don't have the P.P.350 but I have used my XMT350MPa welding pipe with 6010 & Hippy. It welds very nice and would recommend it. I used it to test for Columbia Gas which involves lots of slicing and dicing of the test coupons without any problems. Have passed X-rays with it. I set the arc force on 60.
    And in case you were woundering I powered it off of my Vantage 400- Ted

    Hi TRC, so then is the BBPP350 driving a XMT350 inverter? I was wondering what they decided to put in this new machine for its guts.

    Default New Products

    Coalsmoke, It's in the new products page here on this web site. It has a Mitsubishi engine, which I don't know anything about other than they make some big stuff.
    Good Luck,

    Default bigblue pipepro 350

    I guess i was kinda wondering the same thing as Coalsmoke.... Is this an inverter or inverter technology based machine? The specs seem to quantify this as similar to the Big blue pro 300 , Which is an alternator type rectifier machine? Or is this simply more of an XMT 350 paired to a diesel engine after the style of the Pipe pro 304? I only skimmed over the specs and was curious myself. It is a low speed machine 1800 RPm similar to pipe liner 200 or 300D?

    Default If

    I guess the only thing I can say is if it is based on the 350 inverterit works OK with 6010/7010-Ted

    Im happy that miller has been making machines that are more pipe friendly. And the new 350 pipepro looks like a winner, and i really want to run one.

    I haven't heard anything about this new machine, thanks for bringing it to my attention, it looks like it was added to the products page in September.
    I'm also interested to know if it is inverter based (it does have the infinite arc control like the Pipe Pro 304 and only two cable studs) or transformer based (it talks about "The vault" like the Pro 300).
    My guess is it is inverter based.
    It's AC power while welding is considerably better than the Pro 300 and it is also ahead of the Pipe Pro 304.
    With the list price on the 304 and 350 being identical I think it's safe to say the 304's days are numbered. The 350 looks like the machine we've been telling Miller that they need to bring out. It will be interesting to see how they compare to the Vantage's.

    No it not an inverter, sort of a hybrid, and if I didn't know any better, the Miller system looks to me as reverse engineered Lincoln chopper technology.

    Hello cruizer, I was wondering about exactly what you seem to have come up with, are there advantages or in the engine drive case disadvantages to having the chopper style technology, Is this all done electronically in circuit boards or through some other means? In terms of repair aspects would this be an easier machine to service compared to an inverter if the electronics went wonky? I also wondered how Miller could essentially use the technology if it is under patent protection from Lincoln?
