    Predator Welder

    Does any one have any knowledge of or experience with a Predator Welder? Been in the market for a used Miller Bobcat and discovered this Predator. I think it is a Firepower Predator.

    Thanks!

    "Your best best and cheapest bet is to locate a Thermal Arc Predator/predator pro, or a T-bird welder. As they happen to have pure sinewave auxillary generators running at 230, or 460 power. They were not too good of welders but the generator output was fantastic."

    Try contacting Cruizer over on the Miller site- he seems to be quite familiar with these machines.

    Actually, the Predator is an alright, stone axe simple multiprocess welder. It is also an excellent genset with the ability to provide 10 Kilowatts of 460 volt 3 phase ac power.

    It is no Trailblazer 302, but it provides a decent arc and can run self shielded flux core at 25 volts 100% duty cycle.

    If the price is reasonable and it has been well maintained, it is a worthwhile investment.
