    Was using one of these today on 2 mm aluminium and to tell the truth it performed as good as if not better than the ewm tetrix 300 comfort in my own work apart from the **** torch 20200104_091249.jpg 20200104_140054.jpg

    I have one, in my opinion the arc start is much smoother on more high end machines than on the Parweld but part from that they are quite good.

    The start was a little fluffy but I've used worse, our thermal arc 180 was worse, I expected the prweld to be **** poor but it wasn't
     
  4. Thats good news, think I'm getting one.

    For the money they are pretty decent sets.
    Probably being a little optimistic claiming a better performance over the Tetrix.

    I’ve only used a Tetrix once and quite briefly. I’ll be honest I struggled to get really nice conditions out of it but I’d say that was probably down to me not having spent time setting things up sweet.
    Given the price point and the level of machine that it is, I’d expect it to smash the Parweld to death on performance with the right man setting it up.

    True Richard the tetrix it is a better far superior machine, on the lighter material the parweld done its job with ease, just saying it can be done with out going to the price of the ewm

    The performance of a similar priced Jasic surprised me as well when I tried it. I think for general use most inverters can put out a decent AC arc. It's only when you get to the special tunes that the tetrix will physically do more than the chinese machines - super high frequency pulse, for example.
    As well as job memory, which is an ultra useful feature.

    i bought a new xtt 202 for myself.having used a few parweld units in the sheet metal and pos places ive worked,they seem a popular unit.i pretty much cut my teeth on them .
    im not keen on the torch so may swap that out for something else with a flexi neck.

    Just get a flexi head for the Parweld torch if that is your only dislike about it.
