Hey guys what do you think of running root passes with a Maxstar 150 in stick mode ? Im running roots with 6011 on this machine and all it wants to do is try to snuff out. I have to fight to keep the rod lit and keep it from sticking even with higher amperages.

This is the machine our shop purchased to weld a high pressure steam line contract we have.

I think its a joke and they should have purchased a CST 280
