    Default Trying to run a VS feeder off a Bobcat.

    In some of my older posts I have always told people to get the Trailblazer welder and a S 22 P-12 feeder because the Bobcat doesn't do a great job.

    I need to take back those comments because I was just working at a plant where I cant run my diesel inside so I had to run the customers newer bobcat with one of those junk VS feeders.

    I was pleasantly surprised just how good of a job it did, ( WAY BETTER THAN I WOULD HAVE THOUGHT ) I was welding 1/4" plate and it did a great job, Maybe not as good as my RC feeder but very close.

    When I would let off the trigger the wire kept coming out for a 1/4 second longer than I'm use to.
    I didn't try it down low but would highly recommend it for someone who has a Bobcat that wants to run wire on heavy equipment that doesn't want to have a 14 pin cable hooked up .

    I was very impressed.

    bobcat 250. No issues running .045 inner and outershield with ln25 vs feeder. Now 225 bobcat some are great some are not. My basic reasoning has always been...if u run wire bigger than .035 by the trailblazer! Also same goes for an air arc.
