    Make sure you have a suitcase with your welder, if you show up with only a stinger for a job, you wont get called up again, because stick is way to slow. the only time I use stick is when it is very windy or to start a crack that has dirt inside that I cant clean up.
    A trailblazer with an airpack is one of your best choice to atart if you can afford the expence, if not you can always get a good compressor with any engine driving welder.
    Gauging equipment is a must as it make life so much easier when you have to deal with cracks and so on.
    Good luck

    I'm a starting out mobile welding business with a bobcat 225 nt but looking at the forums have me considering a maxstar with a miller 12vs but someone said CLEAN power to run them. Can a generator from lowes carry those 2 and run it out of an suv?

    Of course running the exhaust out the back with a mod exhaust and the back dorrs open to run the gen for fresh air. To lessen carrying the extra 1200 lbs trailer less it's warranted.

    Sorry but the Maxstar won't run the 12vs if that's what your thinking.

    I couldn't help but notice you have some nice wielding tool in your arsenal. I looked at a millermatic 200 of course I really liked it I won't be tigging much but to perfect the basics. I mainly want a hd 220 mig occasionally stick. tig is a bonus. On your opinion what would fit the bill for putting the ????? Watt gen and what machine would your recomend. I wish it could be a dynasty but not totally crazy still want the equipment to fit an suv. Mig upto 1/2 3/4 being hopeful.

    Guesswho392, If your looking at migging 1/2" & 3/4" plate then your not going to rig up an suv. An engine drive with a feeder, 12 rc or 12 vs is your answer. A genset with a compact mig, passport, multimatic, mm211 is not going to work very well & the duty cycle is low. You mention you already have a trailer so I would rig that. Instead of buying a genset invest in a 12vs to run off your bobcat.
