    If the pulse feature is all that you are after then either machine will work. It is all of the other advanced squarewave features of the Dynasty that make it a bettery choice overall.

    We have a Synchrowave 250 at work that welds great and is a real workhorse. I have a Dynasty 300 at home and it welds great as well but with more adjustability. On the thin stuff you can pulse, soften the arc, widen the arc by changing the balance and on the thicker items you can create more arc force as well as make the weld dig in deeper.

    Default Cost must be considered

    I don't know it the OP is a company or using this for home garage work.
    So the budget is a consideration for any purchase.
    The Sync might be a bit cheaper up front than the Dynasty.
    The Sync will cost more to run every month than a comparable Dynasty model.

    Both will do the job described and much more. What monthly profit margins are you wanting to achieve.

    The Dynasty is clearly the superior machine for that job... I have owned and used both... I presently have Dynasty 350DX Tigrunner and Dynasty 200DX... and would not trade them...

    NOW... as to whether it makes economic sense in your situation.... that is a totally different question and up to you to decide.... But ...purely on your question of the best machine for the job... there is NO CONTEST!!!.... the Dynasty is the best machine based on weld performance and capabilities....

    I would probably divorce my wife before I would part company with my Dynasty350! and I'm fond of my wife if that tells you how much I love my Dynasty ! ! Neither one is ever leaving unless I trade up for a Dynasty700!!!
