    Default Miller or Lincoln engine drive.

    Hey guys what's up, so i'm thinking i might get another portable welder if i can get on a certain job in a few months, i have a TB302 now and i love it makes me look like i can weld Lol, but i'm thinking of getting a diesel was thinking either a pipepro350 or a vantage 300-400, now i'm a Miller guy so i'm really leaning towards the pp350, but i want to keep my options open has anybody used either of these machines or both is there anything that would make me pick one over the other good or bad, i'm not looking to start a miller lincoln war, need help thank's guy's..

    It's a toss up as both use the same technology, I'd go with the PP350 with the Mitsubishi engine, the Cat turbo, sounds powerfull, but in the real world not so much. Or the 325 is a fine mchine as well.

    I like the miller cabinet and controls better they just seem neater, the 325 only comes with a gas engine will there it come with a diesel in the near future??

    As far as engine drives in diesel config goes, the Lincoln classic 300D would be my first choice for code work performance.

    I'm a Lincoln fan and have the 400 Vantage and really like it but when it comes time to replace it I will be looking at the pipepro 350 because it is under 25HP so I'm thinking it shouldn't be affected by the new emission laws. I've welded beside the 350 and I don't think there is any difference between the two.

    I guess if you need 3 phase then go with the Lincoln. I think thats pretty much the only difference. The one I've been working beside has the Cat engine in it and it is quieter than the Perkins.

    Would a Pro 300 compare with a Vantage or pp350?
