    Listing this for a buddy,will post photos and description in next couple of days.
    What I know is; 400 amp ,Diesel welder,with Mig setup.
    Excellent operating condition everything works including glow plug system.One of the smoothest power sources out there, nice smooth starts etc...Mid 80's machine.I believe is a Hobart but will know more tomorrow.
    No cables go with it but can pick those up at any good welding supply shop.
    Was a backup unit and accountant said time to spend some money,so he doesn't need anymore.
    Heavy machine approx 1,800 lbs.
    Not for bodywork, more for 1/4" and thicker.
    $1,200 firm

    Better hurry I might buy it.

    Photo of manuals for welder,wire feeder etc....

    The machine is for sale locally so I have to say first come first serve, the price of $1,200 CASH is FIRM.
    This machine is a great runner and not all banged up as most used machines.
    As stated before NO cables are included.No surprises.
