would like to hear from any owners of record on their experience( bad or good ) specific to the different proceses ,Arc ,Mig,Tig involving the Miller 300xmt-Would like you to honestly share your comparative frustrations and comments regarding this model relative to other multi-process machines like the Pow-Con and Lincoln models-Understand vaguely that the Miller 304xmt was a later refinement over some of the earler shortcomeings-TIA
You may want to post this question over on the miller board as well. Both Andy and Hawk have experience with the xmt and alt series. I don't know if they have experience with the powcon or lincoln models however.
You can review the manuals and specs at the miller website for yourself as well. The most recent improvement in the series is with the lower voltage, short-circuit transfer found in the ALT series and now in the XMT 350 model. Also, the auto-line feature now allows for a wide range of input voltages if that is important to you.
Hey Bill, I've had an XMT300 for over 10 years. I used it part time until two years ago then it went full time. It has been used quite a bit during the last two years. It is set up with a HF250 Hi-freq and a S32P12 wire feeder. It's arc quality is very good in all processes including SMAW running 6010 roots on pipe.
The mechanics' at my local Miller shop tell me that I'm lucky that the 300 still works being first generation inverter they had some issues with longevity. Hope this helps- Ted.
