Looks pretty neat. I expected it to have a low duty cycle like a lot of inverter machines but it looks like the duty cycle is up there with 250 series conventional MIG machines but it looks like if you get the EMP it will also do TIG/stick? I think I'm reading that correctly. For $2500 it looks like a pretty good deal.
This statement confused me a little at first "*Each model is capable of only stated processes" but I think that's only referring to the EM.

I'm definitely interested in one of these, curios to see if anyone chimes in with first hand experience.

I see them on the PowerNation shows - that’s about all my experience.

The combination machine sounds good. I’ve got more real estate and bread in either my MM250X or Syncrowave 250DX.

They are Chinese imports, which does make me wonder about long term support.

I demo'd it at SEMA last year and was very impressed.

It's easily as good as a Miller or Lincoln of the same size.

My only issue is support, no one around me carries them or the parts.

But have fun with it. You should dig it.

I have the little 215 rebel for a home and carry when we go on bigger wheeling trips. It works good.

I have the previous model, i200 Caddy and it works really good. Have it at the shop and it's been used and working very well so far.

Well I've got 5-6 hours of arc time on the new 235 rebel. Ran spray transfer with some metalcore at 27volts, flawless. Ran some hardwire, I'd say on par with a 252. Haven't touched tig or stick yet. Only complaint so far is it is loud as all fuck, the fans don't kick on till you strike an arc but when you stop welding it seems like a good 10mins till they finally ramp down.
