Re: SAE300 questions

I also had a 2012 sae300 . The ocv's are on the face plate, I had mine for awhile always had problems with it was never consitant and mine seemed always underpower for running any big low hy's. Had mine checked out lots load banked even the rack turned never found it to run the way I like eventually sold it cut my losses. But that was just my machine think mine was built by a disgruntled employee before a long weekend.

Re: SAE300 questions

My SAE 300 was never great ethier. Welded ok, but wouldn't stack the iron the way I wanted. Made hundreds of good X-ray welds with it, but too much work to do it. Cut my losses also, sold to someone who wanted and went back to were I started 38 years ago- Lincoln Redface. None better -IMHO. AT- out
