My son is a full time working weldor and we have a Lincoln Precision TIG 275 welding machine in our home hobby shop.
I am in the market for a good quality back up generator for emergency stituations like the last big blackout in Ontario. After looking around on at all the generators available and their costs I have decided that for not much more money I could probably buy a Miller or Lincoln engine welder that would serve 2 purposes and withstand continuous use if necessary.
Does anyone out their have any opinions about the Miller Legend 301G with the 1800RPM generator feature. Is the 301G missing any of the features my son might want if he ever decides to start his own mobile welding business? Do these engine welder have good clean A/C voltage controls that won't hurt new appliances like refridgerators etc? Since the 301 is an older design are MIG feeders etc. going to be hard to find in a couple of years making us wish we had purchased a newer model like the Miller Trailblazer or Bobcat or the Lincoln equivilant?
Thanks in advance
