I am in the second batch of 250EXT's, and am waiting for their arrival. Oleg indicated to me via email there are some delays, so I thought I would start a thread since I am sure there are others waiting as well.
A few questions:
1 - What is the expected date these units will be shipped to the customers?
2 - What exactly should we expect to be shipped with the units? There appears to be a bit of variability here, with missing pedals, extra power cords, etc. A list would be good here. Here is what I think comes with the unit:
- 250EXT Welding unit
- Power cord (it appears the one shipped is very light, I assume I need to find a replacement)
- Tig torch with cable (Series 18 water cooled with hand trigger, denim cover)
- Work clamp with cable
- SMAW electrode holder
- Argon regulator with appropriate hose (regulator to welder)
- Consumable starter pack (what exactly is in this – tungsten's, collets, cups?)
- Foot Pedal
3 - Are there any changes we should expect from the first batch? Improved pedals?
I have some TIG work that I need to get done very soon, and I bought this welder specifically to do this work, so the time is now running and I am getting nervous!
