    Default comparison?

    "I sold my 200DX when I heard about the 280 thinking it might change the used market price. I bought a D350 because I needed more amperage and it is the finest welder I have ever used!"



    Are you saying the D350 is noticeably a better welder than the 200? Or just as nice with more "head room"?

    Are you saying that the D350 welds better than the D200 or just that you enjoy having more "head room"?

    I bought the Dynasty 200 brand new in 2005 and the D350 brand new in 2012.

    The 200 did everything it was designed to do well. The 350 is doing the same with lots more power.

    The starts are better on the 350, but it is seven years newer than the tech of the 200 when I got it.

    The 200 is very portable, much more than the 350. That portability is quite profitable.

    How so? I understand it will have an SD slot but exactly what else are you thinking it's going to have that will be better than the 350? Besides the size of course

    To be better than the 350 it would have to do the work for you.. Now walking into the shop and telling the welder to do my work while I relax is about all I can imagine that it could possibly do to beat the 350!!

    I got to test drive the 280. There are 2 versions of the 280, the 280 basic, and the 280DX.

    The DX model has all the parameter functions available for adjusting on the fly, like the 350 has. I believe it has the SD interface also.

    The basic has a user panel just like the Diversion. You set the metal, then thickness, and the machine does all the rest for you. The SD card will open up a whole new universe for welding IMO.

    The extra 80 amps over the 200 makes a huge difference, not as big as the 350, but amazing all the same.
