    Seems to have been pulled from all literature, even from the technical Miller site. I'm thinking severe problems with the unit or patent issues.

    Big unknown here.

    They are "hardening" the control boards, and optimizing cooling. Not surprising as they are pulling 280 amps out of a unit a tad bigger than a 200DX.

    Can't wait to get my hands on one.

    So are you saying this is some sort of thing Miller is doing or this is happening to prototype units in service?

    From what I know it is at Miller. Under full load they are not happy with internal temps. Could be an airflow issue. Nothing a few "breather holes" would not fix?

    I will field/load test one for Miller. Hint,Hint.

    That doesn't sounds like something that would cause them to completely yank it from the 2013 product line, unless they're having to redesign the case or cooling, or both.

    Perhaps that is it. Makes sense not to put it in the catalog if they are not ready yet.

    Just like it didn't make sense to put it in the 2012 catalog. lol
    I would have loved to have a portable 280 amp tig. I got the 350 and live it, takes 2 to load on the truck!!
