Just ride it at night that way they can not see that it is missing a headlight.

Lincoln PowerMIG 180

For sale is a very lightly used Lincoln PowerMIG 180. Bought it as part of a package deal with a spool gun, not using the welder in favor of another, rather it someone else get use out of it. Original owner used it to repair large scale RC airplanes, mostly with a spool gun.





You get:
  • Lincoln PowerMIG 180 welder
  • Ground clamp
  • Magnum 100L gun

Here's the product decision from Lincoln's website.

Home Depot lists it at $670, asking $450 local pickup.

Briggs 7Kw propane generator ZERO HOURS + tanks

This thing needs a home before the bank takes my late mother's house. I have no need nor space for it.

These pix are grabbed off the web (i'm at work). If there's any real interest w/ you FF's i'll take actuals and put em up.


My late stepfather bought this set-up new in 2005 as a result of his disgust with 2 smaller gasoline gennies during Hurricane Ivan of 2004.

It's a Briggs 7Kw propane unit, Model 04028. It looks like this:



It comes with a plastic base and hookup gear to run 2 20lb LP cylinders like this:


but that wasn't good enough for my Dad. He wanted to be able to essentially run a house for a week or more, like after a major storm. So he bought 3 brand-new Manchester 100lb cylinders (the tall boys )


and had a local fabber weld up an angle-iron frame that holds 2 of the cylinders side by side. He intended to bolt the frame to the side of the house

All of this gear is still 100% new and unused. There are zero hours/minutes/seconds on the generator-- it has never been run. I helped my dad unload it out of the pickup in 2005 and we put it in the shop. It has not moved an inch since that day we unloaded it.

Likewise the big Manchester cylinders are completely un-used and have never been filled. It's just like the generator: we unloaded these cylinders and wheeled them out to the barn and they have sat thus for the last 7 years.


Price: looks like this generator is still going for $1800-2000 (think he paid a hair over 2 in '05), and the 100# cyls run from $140-160 each.


I'd be happy with a grand or so for the whole lot.


Additional stuff included: manual, quick-connect regulator for the dual-20lb cylinder set-up pictured above, as well as the polymer base for those small tanks seen in the same pic.


I have no idea how the hell i'd ship this beast, so it'd be great if you live in Pensacola I might could get the gen on the back of the GS, but not the tanks

Cheers, all

MRP

Mug, Call me on the genny. I need to relocate my 12kw just east of here, and need tall boys in it's new locality. That 7kw would work perfect at my house now

No smoking around the propane, Pete!

What i left out of the backstory up there is that my step-dad actually bought four of those 100lb tanks. At the same time he bought a big appliance dolly from HF-- his plan was keep the 2 tanks in the frame filled all the time and shuttle the other 2 around to the filling place down the road on 29. He had the Ranger back then and figured with the dolly he could wheel the filled tanks around by himself easy enough. He always had a pretty good Plan lined up

I didn't mention the 4th tank in the ad b/c i decided to keep one of them at my house for grill/boiler/Coleman storm duty

Good thing Buzz has dibs on it.
