Also, don't forget portability. Duty cycle of a welder is also determined by the cooling capacity of the welder. Generally, smaller compact sized welders will have less duty cycle and less weight than something with a better duty cycle.

Just how portable is the snap on welder compared to the smaller size units? Also, who would be willing to pay the $2700 price for a 140amp snap on welder?
