    Has anybody used one of these for site work? With wirefeeder?

    What feeders can be run on it?
    Does the feeder need to be voltage sensing or is there a feeder that can connect to the X350 in CV mode?

    It’s looking like one of the sites I work on is finally getting some three phase power and I don’t fancy dragging the S3 down there it’s far to rough for that.
    Need something with very, very good dust ingress protection. Good water resistance would be a bonus.

    Will be doing lots of low-hydrogen basic electrodes, 1.2mm GS FCAW, maybe even some hardfacing wire through it.

    Hi Brad I’ll pm you some pricing over tomorrow.

    If you already have a suitcase feeder then I’d say the X350 rather than the MX

    Ah so I see there are two models now.

    So the X 350 is predominately a CC/Stick machine but does CV so you can hook like a Miller or Lincoln suitcase which is voltage sensing.

    The MX 350 is predominately CV/MIG machine but does stick?

    Yeah that’s about right.

    The MX has less MMA functions but a special PCB inside to drive that wire feeder in the picture and you can adjust the wirefeed rate and voltage from the feeder

    The standard X can be used easily on 3rd party feeders like the Suitcase ones
