Hey guys,

I'm new here but not new to welding. I am currently a fabricator for a company that builds screw conveyers and troughs to spec per the customers needs. Before that, i was a welder repair man, so I am extremely familiar with the machines.

I am looking to buy a small engine-driven machine, either the Bobcat 225 or Bobcat 250. I will be primarily using the machine to power my home when I lose power (I have a well so no power = no water). My question to you is, will the 225 fit my needs better than the 250, or should i just spend the extra money for the 250? I'm leaning towards the 250 but i'd like to hear some other opinions.

Thanks guys!
