    Default XMT304 + 30A Spool Gun + What Pulse Unit

    Hi,

    I run a small General Engineering Business and I have a 304 XMT that I am using successfully with a 30A Spool gun for Ali jobbing work.
    In the last few weeks I have had a few Ali jobs come in the door and I am looking at options to extend my Ali welding without going all out. I do a lot of site work making my XMT an Ideal unit. I have been reading up on the Optima pulse control but am not sure what model would be suitable for my application. I have found a number of second hand pulse controls but am not sure exactly what I need.

    Can anyone steer me in the right direction.

    Regards

    Nick

    I use the optima. works great. preprogrammed for 4043 and 5356. also manual capable. miller part number.043389 sometimes can find some used ones for a good deal. people buy them in a lot at an auction and don't even know what the heel they are.

    Cheers Guys,

    I figured the Optima was the way to go but did not know which Model; 304 it is.

    Out of interest, is the 304 the only option or just the best option. Good to know if I have choices when browsing E-bay and the likes.

    Thanks again

    Nick

    To satisfy your curiousity, the optima 304 is THE ONLY ONE...
