For less than $4300 I have a 250A MIG, 250A TIG and can still get an 80A plasma from Everlast, they are Chinese made as are probably all the rest and Everlast Canada in Burlington has been exceptional for service and any help I've needed. Any professional welders who've used them say there's no significant difference between them and the name brands except price, you're just paying for the name in most cases.Wish you had intimated that you were looking for a welder.
For $4300 CAN you could likely have a lot more than you're getting and it all be name brands.
Industry is very slow right now in at least western Canada so there are some not bad deals available on decent used stuff.
I have no connection to Everlast except being a satisfied customer and it should be noted that Everlast Canada and the US company are related but different, I spoke to the owner of the Canadian company who said he actually goes to China, checks the test reports, does a series of trial welds and then has the machines put in the container for shipping, in 5 years of ownership I've had two switches fail and they were couriered overnight.
