    Calweld,

    I was doing a quick search here on the website to see what info Miller might have and ran across this article. It doesn't help with the LP part, but the contractor spotlighted reminded me of your truck that we talked about in another thread. Thought you would enjoy...SSS

    That article makes me want a Bobcat even more than I did before I read it!

    The big thing I always liked about the bobcat is simplicity. The Trailblazer has more bells and whistles, but the bobcat is just a straight welder/generator, no PC boards, if something does go wrong, lift the hood, find what's burnt, fix it yourself.

    Best way to explain it would be like this........go find a little old ladies car that she bought brand new in 1962 that has 50,000 miles on it and it runs great doesn't leak or burn any oil etc........then give the keys to a 16 yr old that just got there DL won't last two weeks before it will start burning oil running like crap etc......
    Propane is much easier on an eng. and it's oil......gas is much harder on the eng....it combust more violently and deposits more "junk" into the oil.

    FYI

    With todays gas engine manufactures that Miller uses in the Bobcat's or Trailblazer (Kohler / Robin) they don't advise to do a Gas to LP conversion due to emissions etc. You will greatly reduce the horsepower of the engine and in turn reduce the welders output capability. Lastly if such a conversion kit is used, the engine manufactures will not stand behind the warranty any longer.

    The Kohler LP Engine that is use on Miller Welders draws liquid LP not vapor.
