    Can I run this welder off of my gas drive. I have a miller trailblazer 325.
    By Customer Service on March 1, 2013

    Answer:
    TheThermal Arc Fabricator 252i MIG/Stick/TIG Welder W1004401 requires 6.56 KW to operate.. Your Trailblazer can provide 12 KW .. That is certainly enough power to run the 252.. The problem is the power comming out of the trailblazer may not be clean enough to run the 252.. The power that is produced by engine driven generators is not as stable as the power that comes from the power company..We do not know how the 252 will react to the generator power and Thermal and Miller do not have any experience running each others equipment in this manner

    Awesome unit! No bull. it does what it is advertised to do. Period! I would NEVER consider another unit. If you have been thinking about this machine, you can not go wrong.
    Pros:
    Worthy
    Cons:
    If you have to critique this unit for the money spent, and you can find something wrong, id say go and pick up the pieces of your shattered house. As you havent used enough welders to know what you are comparing.

    More then expected
    June 14, 2013
    I have used a lot of different welders and I would have to say I am very impressed at the performance. The burn back function is a nice touch, it will take me a little to get use to it but it works like they claim.
    Pros:
    Burn back function saves time. Build quality is top end, they did not skimp on anything.

    Awesome machine
    April 18, 2013
    it does everything it is designed to do with ease . It very user friendly the set up was easy the change over from mig ,stick and tig is just push of a button and turn of a knob . The regulator was the edge series so that says it all very durable . The power supplies has plenty of power and with i pfc it is very energy efficient .
    Pros:
    2 separate mig and tig gas hook ups on the machine so it allows you to use 2 cylinders hooked up on the unit .
    Cons:
    should of gotten a second regulator to leave both c25 and straight argon cylinders hooked up .

    SMALL SHOPS AND GENERAL FABRICATION
    March 16, 2012
    I have used a lot of welders, working in high end fabrication but for a very cost effective versitale welder these are hands down the best for your buck.... especially if your welding stainless and steel.. you still can weld alum with a spool gun
    Pros:
    COST
    Cons:
    no alum tig
