Clarke spool gun welder

Has anyone here ever used a Clarke 180 amp spool gun welder? I am currently
using a Lincoln sp-170 and it does a great job with aluminum but the feeding
problems are driving me crazy. The clarke welder seems like it would be
ideal.

For less money you can get a Ready welder spool gun that you can hook to your sp-170, DC Stick welder, or even batteries.

I tried a google search on Clarke, didn't come up with anything from a manufacturere, not a good sign.
The 25% duty cycle at 2/3rds rated power disturbs me. Looks to be rated the same way Sears (over)rates their air compressors. With wire feed, it's real easy to get your duty cycle up to 50% or better.

How does the Clarke's duty cycle compare to the Lincoln SP-170's Which I listed below? I have the Lincoln and it is fine for what I do.
